The Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, hopes to be re-elected as head of the executive once again after the legislative elections of September 20, 2021. Running badly in the polls, he is multiplying progressive promises in order to win back the middle class.
On August 15, 2021, the Canadian Prime Minister decided to call an early federal election: a game of poker for his political party - the Liberal Party - to regain a majority in the House of Commons.
While he imagined a balance of power shifting to his favor, the 49-year-old politician instead is seeing the polls turn against him.
According to the latest opinion polls, collected by 338Canada.com, on September 2, Conservative leader Erin O’Toole would be three points ahead of Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party, with 34% of the vote.
If these estimates hold true, the opposition may well acquire 142 seats and form a minority government, with an absolute majority of 170 seats.
Throwing his last strength into this standoff, Justin Trudeau, as in 2019, amplified his appeal to the “useful” vote, calling on voters to block the road to the Conservatives: even if it means increasing discrete invitations towards progressives.
Thus, on its political platform, the Liberal Party is outdoing everyone else, particularly regarding matters of the culture of death.
If you look at page 4 of his program, Justin Trudeau's party makes the following propositions:
- Let there be no doubt that no matter where a person lives, they have access to publicly accessible sexual and reproductive health services - and especially abortion. Failure by a province to meet this standard would result in an automatic penalty applied to federal health transfers.
- Provide up to CAD $10 million to Health Canada to develop an easily accessible portal that provides accurate information on sexual and reproductive health and rights, including a section to oppose misinformation about abortion.
- Stop granting charitable status to anti-abortion organizations (for example, pregnancy crisis centers) that provide dishonest advice to women who come to them at all stages of their pregnancy.
With this platform, the Liberal Party takes a new step, and promises to wage war on the defenders of unborn life, to the point of criminalizing their position.
“It is difficult to think of a more blatant attack against fundamental freedoms, of thinking and expressing oneself,” responded Marty Moore, lawyer for the Justice Center for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF), A conservative organization dedicated to the defense of individual rights and freedoms in Canada.
The last word now belongs to Canadians who remain free to sanction their Prime Minister's ideological drift at the ballot box.
