O Canada! Our northern neighbor’s voters have succumbed to the sorts of seduction that brought us Barack Obama’s presidency. Last night, Canadians elected Justin Trudeau – a young, untested and superficially attractive leftist, running on a platform offering hope and promising change.
In so doing, they fired Prime Minister Stephen Harper, arguably, the Free World’s most stalwart, and conservative, leader. In the place of a reliably pro-American Canada, guided by a champion for liberty, a strong supporter of Israel and a courageous opponent of Islamic supremacism, Trudeau’s government will be pursuing policies at home and abroad fundamentally at odds with our interests.
All this will suit President Obama, whose campaign operatives were – as usual – dispatched to help elect the leftist candidate. In due course, Canadians will surely come to regret this mistake, but at what cost to them, and to us?
