|Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at Rideau Cottage|
“ ... Mr Trudeau is in good health and has no symptoms, according to his office, but will remain in isolation for 14 days. There are no plans at present for Mr Trudeau to be tested for coronavirus ...”
Sorry Justin, however you are the leader of our country ... all thirty-seven PLUS million of us.
As Prime Minister it is your duty to be at the head of government – to be the face of government – to be in Ottawa at media briefings – and to be one front and centre – NOT Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland.
It’s been said we are in a battle against this disease, and that we’re in it for the long haul to beat it down.
Let me remind the people reading this of another battle of many decades ago – the Battle of Britain. During that battle, Winston Churchill was Prime Minister; his Deputy Prime Minister was Clement Attlee.
So, who was the face of government then? Does anyone even know or remember Clement Attlee?
You may not agree it’s a fair comparison, however once this ‘battle’ is over (and if nothing changes) I believe I know who’ll be remembered as it’s leader – and it won’t be Justin Trudeau.
That said, an individual who I know for fact is NOT a Liberal supporter, responded with the following on my post, when asked who should be running the country:
“ ... you asked me who should be running the country. Well that person is already running the country. Her name is Chrystia Freeland ...”
He is the one who should be at the head of the government table when announcements are made ...
If not, who will we remember, in the years and decades to come, as the one who led the country, during one of it’s biggest crises?
Will it be a Churchill ... or an Attlee?
