Justin Trudeau has announced his commitment to waste $8.4 million to study how “climate change interacts with democratic decline”.

Trudeau commits millions to study the impact of climate change on democracy

“Today I’m announcing that Canada is investing $8.4 million on research across the global south to better understand how climate change interacts with democratic decline,” Trudeau announced at the Summit on Democracy.

“These initiatives will also help protect the human rights of environmental defenders,” he continued.

The announcement came as part of a broader package of wasteful spending, including dropping $22.3 million to promote inclusion, $5.6 million to strengthen resilient democratic institutions, and $2.5 million to counter foreign interference, a press release from the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) reveals.

As an aside, the government will also be tossing out $4.6 million so the International Development Research Centre can create “an equitable, feminist, and inclusive digital sphere”.

A trend of obscene climate change spending

This announcement comes after the revelation that the Liberals gave the World Economic Forum, well-known for their radical climate change agenda, half a million dollars in taxpayer money to fund a report justifying climate change policies and, of course, the spending that comes with said policies.

The documents, which were only obtained via an order paper question filed by Conservative MP Leslyn Lewis, reveal that Environment and Climate Change Canada dolled out the money “to enable [the WEF] to produce and disseminate a report that will establish the business and economic case for safeguarding nature.”

This report includes justifications for the carbon tax and subsequent hikes.

Leading up to the summit and the new wasteful spending commitment, it was also revealed that the Trudeau government has managed to spend $6 million since the beginning of 2023 on climate change advertising, effectively priming the Liberal base to accept such initiatives. This spending has intensified, too, as while roughly $4 million of the $6 million came from last year’s spending, over $2 million has been spent since the beginning of 2024—mostly to justify the impending April 1 carbon tax hike, which a majority of Canadians are thoroughly against.
