Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was asked by a reporter why he wouldn’t step down given the fact that an overwhelming number of Canadians have a negative perception of him, to which the PM said he needed to save Canada from climate change.

Trudeau says he won’t step down despite negative perception of him 

Laura Stone from the Globe and Mail asked the Prime Minister during an unrelated announcement:

“The public appears to have an overwhelmingly negative view of you personally, and you seem to have lost control of the conversation on some of the key issues that Canadians care about. I think the public might be looking at you and your position right now and thinking for the good of the Liberal Party, why is he staying on?”

In response, the Prime Minister offered up a classic word salad, suggesting that he needed to stay on as PM because of climate change. 

“We’re here investing in good jobs for today and for generations to come. The world is in a challenging place, absolutely. But that’s why for eight years this government has been putting forward investments and a frame that most fights climate change and creates good jobs and economic growth,” he said, before continuing to announce other investments.

Trudeau also said “I know there are lots of folks in Ottawa thinking about process. I’m focused on results for Canadians.”

The 9-year PM also added that “a different government, years ago, wouldn’t have made the choice to build an EV ecosystem here in Canada, would have doubled down on the oil and gas industry.”

Conservatives sense Trudeau’s resignation, blast out insults towards suspected new leader 

The Opposition Conservatives sense a Trudeau resignation before the next election, and have even started to call Mark Carney “Carbon Tax Carney,” claiming the outsider will become the Liberal’s next leader. 

A number of Conservative MPs, including leader Pierre Poilievre, have used the nickname in recent days, as speculation grows Prime Minister Trudeau will step down before the next election scheduled for October 2025.

Trudeau on the brink

The Prime Minister is getting obliterated in the public-opinion polls, including one showing that Canadians dislike him specifically more than his Liberal Party. He recently stated he “thinks about quitting every day,” though he’s also vowed to remain PM into the next election.
