When you met with Vice President Mike Pence this week you continued your compulsive habit of embarrassing Canadians. From my friend Jonathon Van Maren:
"His [Trudeau's] arrogance was on full display this week when he attempted to shoehorn a discussion on abortion into a meeting with Vice President Mike Pence on NAFTA and issues related to China. Trudeau was concerned about American “backsliding” on the issue and claimed that “Canadians” are also very concerned about it, even though this projection is primarily a figment of his imagination, where everyone constantly agrees with him.
Trudeau is simply hoping to make abortion an election issue, and thus he pretended that the Vice President is able to address concerns about laws passed by state legislators, when in reality he was virtue-signalling to his base. Their exchange at a post-meeting press conference on Thursday, where Trudeau expressed his opposition to “anti-choice laws” and Pence reaffirmed his commitment to “the right to life,” was cringe-worthy on both a diplomatic and a human level."And you continued to embarrass us when you said:
"There was a significant amount of concern amongst Canadians on the new anti-choice laws being passed in the American states and highlights the fact that Canadians and the government will always be a strong defender of women's rights and a woman's right to choose."I am a Canadian. Stop saying you speak for me on abortion. You don't.
And the American pro-life people to whom you refer to, and their pro-life laws, are just that: pro-life. As are all Canadian pro-life people. If you insist on telling us that you speak for us when you do not, at least have the common courtesy and respect to call us what we are: pro-life. Your pro-abortion bias is catching up with you when you follow the dictates of leading Canadian pro-abortion advocate Joyce Arthur in calling us "anti-choice".
This is rude behaviour and it is tiring. Stop it.
For the record? Mike Pence is a hero for his and President Trump's support for the right to life. You could learn something from him.
I know you won't be our Prime Minister much longer, but in the meantime start showing some respect for pro-life Canadians. As the Prime Minister of Canada, you owe us at least that.
