Canadians hear a lot about the many threats towards freedom and democracy posed by U.S. President Donald Trump. Trump’s bombastic style, coupled with a liberal media obsessively twisting his words and often flat-out inventing a narrative, has resulted in endless hand-wringing and condemnation from the Canadian chattering classes.

Trudeau shut down Parliament in the midst of his heavy-handed economic lockdowns, claiming it was unsafe for Parliamentarians to gather in the House of Commons. While hidden away from the scrutiny of opposition MPs, Trudeau unveiled the largest increase in spending in Canadian history.
