Trudeau's troubling pattern with strong women
Nassif’s claims on her own could easily be dismissed as a disgruntled politician crying sour grapes, but when you look at them along with Trudeau’s treatment of Wilson-Raybould, Philpott and MP Celina Caesar-Chavannes, it looks like a pattern.
Nassif’s claims on her own could easily be dismissed as a disgruntled politician crying sour grapes, but when you look at them along with Trudeau’s treatment of Wilson-Raybould, Philpott and MP Celina Caesar-Chavannes, it looks like a pattern.

Taken on its own, the story in the Globe and Mail about Liberal MP Eva Nassif wouldn’t be of tremendous interest. Taken as part of a pattern that goes against Justin Trudeau’s self-proclaimed feminism, the story takes on a whole new meaning.

Nassif was one of 50 women the Liberals helped elect in the 2015 campaign, but she wasn’t allowed to run in this election and says she it is all because she wouldn’t post supportive messages of Trudeau on social media.

“I was punished for failing to hail Justin Trudeau as a great feminist in the wake of SNC-Lavalin when I didn’t post anything,” Nassif told the Globe.

If you remember those days after Jody Wilson-Raybould and Jane Philpott left the Liberal caucus in March, female Liberal MPs took to Twitter and Facebook to post praise for Trudeau as a strong leader for women. The posts were often identical and were obviously centrally written.

Nassif told the Globe that she didn’t post them because “I am authentic.”

Now think about that — here is a woman who says she was blocked from running for the self-proclaimed feminist because she didn’t sing his praises as a feminist leader. She also said she was bullied by three male Liberal MPs and the party didn’t stop it.
