Trudeau was re-elected, but it was far from a good year for him
Let’s hope 2020 is a less embarrassing year for our PM.

At first glance, it may seem like Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had a pretty good year. After all, he managed to squeeze through the October election with a minority government despite having a lower approval rating in Canada than Donald Trump in the U.S.

Trudeau practically bribed the media with bailout funds, ran a divisive campaign that pit Canadians against each other and aimed to ruin the reputation of those who stood in his way.

It paid off, and Trudeau won the election. But that doesn’t mean that 2019 was a good year for him. Au contraire. It was another year full of missteps, gaffes and embarrassing moments that made all Canadians cringe.

Without further ado, here is my list of the top Stupid Things Trudeau Said in 2019:

7. After the Globe and Mail revealed that Trudeau’s office attempted to interfere in the SNC-Lavalin trial by pressuring former Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould, Trudeau denied the allegations.

“The allegations reported in the Globe story this morning are false. Neither the current nor the previous attorney general was ever directed by me or by anyone in my office to take a decision in this matter,” said Trudeau.

It turns out, the only thing “false” was Trudeau’s statement. The Ethics Commissioner found that Trudeau did indeed break the law by attempting to interfere with Wilson-Raybould’s decision.

Merry Christmas Canada — It will be 22 years before Ottawa balances the budget, finance department revealss..

Trudeau is indeed the captain of a sinking ship. A captain who changed the safe stable course of the ship of state and pointed it directly at the bottom ripping out reef. He then turns control of the ship over to a gender selected/promoted first mate and basically retires to his cabin with instructions not to be disturbed.
