Trudeau – Wrong Side Of The Fence

ISIS 2According to a Léger poll published this week in Le Devoir, 62% of Quebecers now support the war against the Islamic State in Iraq and 74% agree with the new Conservative anti-terror bill. This is good news for the federal Conservative’s and bad news for Justin Trudeau’s Liberals since they have been catering heavily for the Muslim vote. After the attack of Charlie Hebdo in Paris, Trudeau has found himself on the wrong side of the political fence. The attack in France has hit close to home and opened Quebecor’s eyes

Just a few month ago our previous liberal PM Chrétien said, “Harper did not understand that history in the Iraq 2003 war , and he does not understand it today.” and agreed with Justin Trudeau that Canada should immediately take 50,000 refugees fleeing the Islamic State and allocate $100 million for the World Food Program to help feed refugees facing a harsh winter. Back in 2003 Stephen Harper criticized Chretien for his decision to keep Canada out of the Iraq war. Well, here we are 14 years later and the war still rages. Trudeau, like Chretien is wrong in the idea, that sending some humanitarian aid, warm blankets etc., is going to solve this ISIS savage brutality that is now sweeping across Libya. When Obama pulled out of Iraq, President Bush predicted the US would be back within 5 years. He was right and so was Harper.

Now, Justin Trudeau says Harper’s pandering to fears about Muslims, unworthy of a PM, just when 21 Coptic Christians have been beheaded by ISIS in Libya the past weekend. Trudeau either has no idea on how fast this ISIS disease is spreading or just can’t help himself from pandering for the Muslim vote for the 2015 election. Personally, I can’t imagine the Trudeau and the Liberal party being that stupid they don’t understand the threat ISIS poses. But maybe they are. Maybe they really think all Canada should do is dish out warm blankets and a hot meals. Maybe they really think Canada should let someone else protect our freedom. What ever the reason, Quebecers don’t support the Liberal soft on ISIS view.

Now we have Trudeau doing a flip-flop of sorts. After months of criticising the Conservatives on joining the war in Iraq, and accusing Harper of pandering to fears about Muslim’s, he’s decided to back the Conservatives anti-terror bill. Just by backing the bill, I would think he is acknowledging there is a real threat of terrorism. I can almost bet a toonie his position is based on the fact more than four in five Canadians, 82% , back the new legislation to expand the powers of intelligence agencies and police. A position based on how many votes he will lose if he doesn’t vote for the bill, not conviction like Mulcair’s NDP who will vote against the bill. Harper is the only leader that has consistently argued there is big trouble in the middle east that must be stopped.

The ISIS problem is growing daily and is not going to go away. This is going to be a very big election issue in which Trudeau has been on the wrong side of the fence for to long. It’s just to late for the Liberals to crawl back, especially in Quebec. This ISIS issue could very well help Harper make in roads into Quebec for another majority. Not even the Mile Duffy scandal will help the liberals on this one.
