To be honest, it was hard to be motivated to support the last Conservative Party, with the negativity, hate (barbaric cultural practices hotline??), and frankly, small-mindedness.
That being said, I just cannot fathom this rock star persona around Prime Minister Trudeau, and the left's giddy behaviour with regards to him.
I understand the desire to change. I understand the hope he purports to bring. I cannot understand the people posting to Facebook about his, or his wife's looks. Posting his glamour shots, being proud of having a "handsome" Prime Minster. It smacks of sexism.
Nor, can I stand the free ride Prime Minister Trudeau gets from the press, examples like
- Equal gender cabinet, where nearly all the women are second-tier Cabinet Ministers, or reporting to men. And if we want to be honest, there are only a few more women in PM Trudeau's cabinet then there were in Stephen Harper's.
- A dubious Science Minister shilling a decidedly non-scientific MS cure.
- The free ride he is getting on explaining why we shouldn't bomb ISIS in Iraq and Syria. But have more trainers.
- Explain how we will screen the refugees, to ensure security. Or why we should bring in twice as many as the Americans.
That is just four, I am sure I could come up with more if I really tried.
