Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre wants to “make Canada great again.” 

Trudeau says Poilievre wants to “Make Canada Great Again”

Poilievre was challenging Trudeau’s lackadaisical bail policy and the surge in car thefts across the country.

Trudeau responded by referring back to one of his most common attacks against Poilievre — trying to align him with former President Donald Trump.

“Once again, we see Conservatives falling into the far-right American trap in their approach on crime that doesn’t work — that doesn’t keep Canadians safe, it sounds good in sound bites and attacks but doesn’t actually deliver safer communities,” Trudeau said, also adding “what [Poilievre] is proposing to do is to make Canada great again — that is not what Canadians want.”

Liberals getting reckless amid awful polling numbers

While Trudeau had never used that phrase until Wednesday, the Prime Minister started to demonize Poilievre by aligning him with Trump since he hired a branding specialist, Max Valiquette, in November of last year.

The Trudeau Liberals’ social media account has posted multiple attack ads against Poilievre, suggesting he’s the “far-right” Canadian version of Donald Trump.

One ad shows Pierre Poilievre criticizing the 81 genders theory, accusing the Conservative leader of bringing “American far-right” politics into Canada.

Another ad includes videos that cut back and forth between Trump and Poilievre both using the word “woke.” 

Amid Trudeau’s terrible polling numbers, Canada’s former ambassador to Washington, David MacNaughton, noted how desperate the Liberals have become.

“I would be trying to make sure that there weren’t any huge blow-ups in our relationship with the Americans between now and our (Canadian) election,” MacNaughton said, noting the very real possibility that Donald Trump becomes the next US President and responds negatively to all the smears.

A February 4 polling update by 338Canada shows the Federal Conservatives remain projected to win about 199 seats in the next election, putting them in majority government territory, compared to the Liberals projected to win just 74 seats.
