Either with no sense of irony or with absolutely shameless cynicism, Trudeau denounces the Conservatives for employing…. the same “ethnic” “multicultural” vote-getting strategy the Liberals used for generations.
With what I presume is a straight face, Justin-time Trudeau actually said, out loud, in public:
The Conservatives are being very strategic about the communities that they support,” Trudeau said critically, sitting among voters in a York Centre restaurant.
“The Conservative party is saying: ‘Vote for me, we’ll make one of your guys a senator. Vote for me, we’ll put an extra visa office in your country (of origin). Vote for me, we’ll support your festival or your community centre.
“It’s a transactional relationship . . . and it is effective to get you elected. But you just cannot build a strong society and you cannot build a strong Canada that goes beyond its differences when you’ve played up these differences.”
And was not struck by lightning.
There is no God.
