Is the Wave of Right-Wing Populism About to Hit Canada?

in Canada/Other News/USA by

Looking around us, there’s no arguing the fact that the world is changing.

Britain did the unthinkable and led the country to leave the European Union. America did the unthinkable and elected Donald Trump, the wildcard candidate, as President of the United States. Over in France, Marine Le Pen’s right wing party continues to gain momentum. And in Germany, the reigning chancellor risks losing her seat of power.

If some fringe professor tried to predict all this ten years ago, they would’ve been sent straight to the loony bin. All these events were unthinkable because we never really thought about them. We never really discussed those underlying issues in a seemingly stable political order.

Well, it’s time for Canada to discuss those issues now.

Populism In Canada

The basis for populism, in any country of the world, is unheard voices and a disenchanted electorate. Since the Liberal government was elected in 2015, the number of such voices has increased rapidly. But why? That is the question.

The reason is simple. Liberal governments have failed and are crumbling around the world because of the disparity between what they say and what they do. There’s an element of hypocrisy, which is the common thread between all of those countries. And, when it comes to hypocrisy, how can Canadian Liberals stay behind.

Trudeau’s Hypocrisy

The reason right wing populism is about to arrive to Canada soon is because of the difference between what Trudeau says and what he does. Trudeau says he wants to make Canada more secure against external threats. But, on the other hand, he allows and encourages steady stream of Muslim immigrants in the country.

He says he wants to make his government open and transparent. And then he attends cash-for-access fundraisers against his own government policy. He wants to change the present electoral system of the country. But now that he’s in power, he has done absolutely nothing in that regard.

All this has left the Canadian people disgruntled. It’s only a matter of time before global change reaches here too.

  1. It’s plain and simple, people are sick and tired of the politicians lying to them and thinking they can do whatever they want with no consequences. Also they’re sick of having to be PC all the time to avoid upsetting this or that race, religion or personal persuasion. It has to stop and maybe this is the time for it. I personally hope so, I believe you speak your mind and do what you say. If you’re offended by that then too bad, you’re offended nothing is going to happen to you, get over it.

  2. We have had a beautiful country which always felt free and safe for Canadians of all ages. We were tolerant of all points of view, based on my experience, and we weren’t required to rationalize or justify why we believed or felt the way we did. Now every point of view is dissected and if you don’t comply with the liberal point of view you are charged with being a phobic of some type or order.
    Our freedom of speech is being jeopardized and the liberals rationalize their bullying as being in the best interests of all. Canadians are being told what they should think, say and do – this is not freedom Justin this is dictatorship.
