Justin Trudeau is trying to bully Truck drivers the same way he bullies women: good luck with that

The historical instances of Justin Trudeau bullying women could fill a book; in fact, they have filled a book. Jody Wilson-Raybould’s “An Indian in the Cabinet” detailed her experiences with Trudeau and his appalling behaviour. She quit rather than submit to him. Photo: Amazon

Justin Trudeau has a history of bullying.

On May 18 2016 Trudeau turned violent in the Canadian Parliament when he elbowed Opposition Member Ruth Ellen Brosseau in the chest while shouting “get the F*** out of my way,” as reported by the Associated Press.

Then in February, 2019, Trudeau was accused by his former Justice Minister Judy Wilson-Raybould of attempting to coerce her into overturning a Justice Department decision to take SNC Lavalin to court for illegal activities. She resigned from the Trudeau Cabindet, and a few days later Trudeau’s Principal Secretary Gerald Butts also resigned over this scandal.

The following month Jane Philpott quit the Trudeau Cabinet in solidarity with Wilson-Raybould saying she lost confidence in the way Trudeau dealt with the SNC Lavalin affair.

On August 14, 2019, Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion found that Trudeau broke the federal Conflict of Interest Act by seeking to influence Jody Wilson-Raybould. Trudeau contravened the Act, which states that public office holders are prohibited from using their position to seek to influence a decision that furthers the interest of a private third party.

Now, Trudeau has decided that in addition to bullying women in politics, he should also try to bully the male and female Truck Drivers who have been delivering food and other goods during COVID for the past two years, long before any COVID shot was even available.

Fortunately for Canadians, Truck drivers understand that the only way to deal with a bully is to stand up to them.
