Prime Minister Justin Trudeau revealed Tuesday why he really crushed the Freedom Convoy with the Emergencies [War Measures] Act..It was all about people opposing his policies.The prime minister is making the rounds of his year-end interviews. While talking to CTV about his imagined achievements for the year, Trudeau revealed his gun confiscation program would, in fact, encompass some firearms used for hunting. He mentioned that fact like a man ordering a ham sandwich at a deli, in the same manner he usually confesses to mendacity. But you have to see his interview with Trudeau’s “buddy” and former Montreal radio host Terry DiMonte who sits down with the prime minister every year over a mug of beer to rehash the year. If you thought Trudeau resembled a petulant teenager in a formal context, get a load of him when he’s just shooting the BS with friend from the media. .DiMonte doesn’t just lob softball questions at Trudeau; he spoon feeds the PM. It is perhaps not surprising that less than 3,000 people have viewed the YouTube video of this historic dialogue. .Trudeau couldn’t entirely avoid talking about matters of state and he vented about the Freedom Convoy and virtually admitted he crushed the protest because he didn’t like their opinion on the COVID-19 vaccine. .“What worried me so much about the convoy … the issue is there are people out there who are trying to spread [the anti-vaccine message] and push it beyond just 'my choice is to not do it' .. it’s more of a deliberate attempt to destabilize, to fundraise — to make money off of people's fears — to shift the narrative to undermine their trust in institutions to just sow chaos in our democracy and our society and our using very, very powerful means to do that … in a way that actively and deliberately harms Canadians."Trudeau says he couldn't "shrug" that off..Ah, there we have it. Trudeau forgot all about public safety or at least attempted to redefine as protecting Canadians from ideas that he doesn't agree with. And what about how he had to use the Emergencies [War Measures] Act to restore order and avoid some kind of insurrection that existed only in Trudeau’s challenged mind?.Trudeau also comes across as a man who still believes the country cannot long survive without his presumed brilliance and is still “in love with the gig” as DiMonte describes Trudeau’s duties as PM. Trudeau declares how much he still loves the job because he can “help people,” usually, as he admits, those people in his own Montreal constituency of Papineau. .When Trudeau disappeared for a week following the arrival of the Freedom Convoy in Ottawa, I remarked at the time that he had probably opted to binge watch film series The Matrix. Seems like I wasn’t far off as Trudeau revealed his favorite author is horror novelist Stephen King and his favorite book of the year is King’s latest bestseller Fairy Tale..This is one of the “nice things to chill” that make life as PM bearable. .Trudeau apparently has a difficult time dealing with reality as he complains, “You get ground into all sorts of briefing notes, facts and analyses and documents of this and that.” .He finds a welcome respite in science fiction films like Endor, which Trudeau endorses like a teenager pitching the latest video game. .“Dude you gotta see it. It is so good. Is everything that Star Wars could be and should be,” Trudeau gushes. .“And it’s for adults” he assures us. .Another of Trudeau’s idle pursuits is binge watching television shows. He held forth at length about the Amazon Prime series The Boys, a series about vigilantes hunting down corrupt superheroes. When Trudeau’s friend said he had not watched the show, Trudeau upbraided him by saying, “Dude, you’re not watching good shows.” .He must have used the word “challenge” or “challenges” about three dozen times over the course of the interview, describing just about everything about government in that manner. .Well, relax Justin. Canadians can always decide to give you an early retirement to spend more time in your alternate universe.
