OPINION: Trudeau Has Time For The Elites, But Not The People Of Emerson
WINNIPEG, MB – Justin Trudeau has spent plenty of time meeting with the global elites. Whether during his ethically-challenged trip to the Aga Khan’s private island, his regular visits to New York to mingle with celebrities and bankers, or his cash-for-access fundraisers with foreign billionaires, Trudeau always makes himself available for those with money and power.
When it comes to the people he was actually elected to serve however, it seems he’s too busy.
Consider what’s happening in Emerson
That community has seen a flood of illegal border crossers, due in large part to Trudeau’s tweet foolishly welcoming everyone to Canada – in ignorance of how our immigration system works.
As Emerson has struggled with the growing influx, the support Trudeau promised seems non-existent.
And yet, he hasn’t found the time to visit.
He hasn’t met with Emerson residents to find out what impact the illegal crossings are having in their lives.
He hasn’t spoken with those on the front lines about what support they really need.
And he hasn’t reconsidered the negative impact his policies are having on Canadian citizens.
Many people are finding this to be an ongoing pattern with Trudeau: If there is a photo-op involved Trudeau finds the time. If not, he’s got other things to do.
The people of Emerson – and all Canadians – deserve far better.
We deserve a Prime Minister who actually believes in putting the well-being of Canadians first.
