Trump vs Trudeau II more

Trudeau has so far been reluctant to roll back the Harper evils. Walking in pride parades is small beans, and i know I am going to catch hell for this, in comparison to his avid pursuit of free trade which only benefits the rich and will screw the rest of us. His unwillingness to roll back security/surveillance regime arising out of islamophobia and fear mongering about something that kills less people than automobiles do. His bleating about how he loves and respects indigenous peoples but refuses to roll back Harpers Navigable waters Act which is a gift to corporations but screws indigenous peoples. He wants to build more pipelines not less enabling Canada to be one of the most polluting countries on the planet and spends virtually nothing on green technologies. He does nothing about the overarching racism in Canada beyond using the white nation building and guilt deflecting tool that is multiculturalism. The list goes on and on. Yes, Trump now has his finger on the Nuclear trigger and that is un-nerving but no more so then when Ronald Reagan was clearly in an advanced state of dimentia and no one took the trigger away from him.
