With the 2019 federal election still a long time away, PM Justin Trudeau calls on Muslims to run for the Conservative party leadership.
Trudeau still doesn’t want to lose the 2019 election, but instead of running against the current conservative leaders Trudeau calls on conservative Muslims to run and compete against him, literally begging them.
From CIJ News:
When asked by Galloway“When someone like a candidate for the Conservative leadership says: we need to be screening for anti Canadian values. What is your reaction to that?”, Trudeau said the following (December 5, 2016):
“A few weeks ago, I was meeting a group of Muslim Canadians, and they were very happy to see me, very supportive of me, that particular group, and I said: ok, I’m glad you are all supportive of me, but I have a request. You all have friends, family members who disagree with me on this or that or other things, may be little more conservative economically or a little more environmentally, you know, out there than I am. The other two political parties have leadership races right now.
And here’s why…
“I’d like to see more Canadians of diverse backgrounds engaging with parties which line up with their convictions and ideologies to make sure that no party gets to run against Muslim Canadians or any other group of Canadians and demonize them. I think the way we do that is by getting involved in the whole breadth of the political spectrum in Canada. I’d like people to decide they’re more aligned with me and my party but they should also think about being active and aligned with parties that disagree with me on certain issues.”
This is the first time liberals beg Muslims to support a certain party in Canada, here’s a Muslim woman who asks refugee children to run for Ontario PC party, WATCH below.
