When people talk about the “elites,” a key aspect of criticism is that we are ruled by people who think they should be able to apply the rules on us, but that the rules shouldn’t apply to them. And Justin Trudeau sums up that attitude more than any Canadian politician in recent memory. From lecturing Canadians on feminism and racism while having his own serious problems, to accusing his opponents of dividing the country while demonizing everyone who disagrees with him, Trudeau has made a career out of telling people to follow rules that he feels exempted from. The latest example is the growing WE charity scandal, where the Liberals outsourced a huge government project to a charity with super-close ties to the prime minister and his wife.
