The Canadian Prime Minister ‘doesn’t understand the lives of ordinary Canadians’Watch – Justin Trudeau: How it’s all gone downhill for the liberal poster boy
Justin Trudeau is in danger of not being in office for much longer, according to The Telegraph’s US Editor Nick Allen.
The Canadian Prime Minister’s decision to call a snap election to secure a majority government is at risk of backfiring as polls show the liberal leader now trailing the conservative opposition after a string of embarrassments.
“It’s been a very rocky campaign for Justin Trudeau so far – no pun intended because he got pelted with rocks [on the campaign trail],” said Nick Allen, in the video analysis above.
Having comfortably led almost every poll for more than a year, praised by many for his handling of the pandemic, he is now behind the Conservative Party – with his slump drawing comparisons with Theresa May’s disastrous snap poll gambit in 2017.
The 49-year-old, who currently presides over a minority government following dismal election results in 2019, called the snap election, insisting he needs a stronger mandate to take Canada through the coronavirus pandemic.
“Trudeau came in in 2015 amongst wave of popularity – he was modern and young – essentially it’s been downhill ever since for him,” said Nick Allen
“He obviously had a very bad election in 2019 and he hasn’t achieved what he promised at the moment.
“He’s seen as someone who’s trying to rescue himself by calling this snap election [but] he’s plummeted in the polls and why he’s currently in danger of not being in office for much longer.”
Due a series of controversies, the image of Trudeau is “very, very different” to the one that he had when was elected in 2015, he added.
“[Critics] see him as a very privileged person who doesn’t quite understand the lives of ordinary Canadians.”
