Last night was the first time of this campaign season that the Canadian public got a sense of what awaits them in the upcoming election. As much as this may not have technically been the first debate, it certainly felt like the first debate in light of what the previous debate represented.
In a two-party system, it is easy to ask which party is better while completely forgetting to ask whether both are good to begin with. It is when one begins to ask this question that they can change the entire paradigm... What we need aren’t two sides of the same coin, but a different coin altogether.
In many ways, the nature of the events that have unfolded within our nation reflect broader trends in the West in general. In general, we are seeing nationalist forces rising in parts of the West while NGOs (like the Open Society Foundation among others...) and supranational Globalist leaders like Guy Verhofstadt attempt to consolidate power and build an "empire". In Canada, we see NGOs (like the Canadian Antihate Network among others...) suppressing Nationalism while "Postnational" nation-state leaders like Justin Trudeau attempt to further their reign over their nation-state as puppets of much broader interests.
What we have here are nonelected, nongovernment, non-for-profit organizations, with a history of representing foreign and radical interests, who have been trying to use law-enforcement agencies, state-owned media outlets, private media outlets, policy advocacy, and the threat of radical extremist violence in order to suppress nationalism within a nation-state.
What Quebec has is a government with a party that has campaigned on reducing the number of immigrants into Quebec to 40,000 (20%) in comparison with the nation's quota of 350,000+, a party that has campaigned on banning burkas, hijabs, and kippas, a party that has campaigned on the ethnic heritage of the Quebecois, and a party that explicitly identifies as "Nationalist" before "Conservative". So what was key to the success of the CAQ?
Currently, on the world stage, we are seeing tensions in Venezuela over Juan Guaidó staging a potential US or Brazilian-backed coup against Maduro, tensions in Iran over the renegotiating of the Iran deal, tensions in Syria over Israel occupying the Golan Heights, and now the tensions between China are increasing even more than before. As if we didn’t have Chinese expansion in the South China Sea to worry about, as if we didn’t have North Korea (a Chinese proxy's missile tests) to worry about, and, as if we didn’t have the current trade war and deficit to worry about––we are now seeing the Canadian government take explicit actions against one of China’s major international brands. The biggest issue about all of this is that all of these nation-states that the US is taking action against are nation-state that are aligned with one another (plus Russia).
So these are the Liberals of today... What should be noted here isn't that the Conservatives are a better option, but that the Liberals are just as bad. If anything, Canadian Nationalists should be hopeful for the rise of a paradigm characterized by the NDP and PPC rather than the Progressive Neoliberalism of today, especially because the Economic Nationalism of the NDP greatly compliments the more National Conservatism of the PPC. It is within a paradigm like this, that there is a lot of populist potential for anyone who finds the point of compromise between Socialist Populism and Nationalist Populism.
If the Liberals had a single ounce of competence in their body or a single shred of dignity in their bones, they would put a motion of no-confidence forward against Trudeau and they would bring Wilson-Raybould to the forefront of their party, possibly even having her run for Prime Minister in the upcoming election. If Wilson-Raybould was as intelligent as she is ethical, she would use this current scandal as leverage to try to run as a PM candidate for the NDP, thereby furthering the inevitably death of the liberals to the Left-Populism of the NDP. Frankly, one should have little confidence that any of these plays will be made.
Justin Trudeau is the worst Prime Minister in Canadian history. Since his election in 2015, Justin Trudeau has done absolutely nothing for the average Canadian family. Instead, what his Liberal Government have done is systematically introduced new forms of taxation on the already-overburdened Canadian people in an attempt to erase the middle class and create a communist-style dictatorship. Aided by a blatantly false media narrative, it seems there is nothing
