Americans who feel triggered continuously by things that President Donald Trump says and tweets can comfort themselves about one thing. They could be Canadian and thus in a constant state of befuddlement about how Justin Trudeau became that country’s prime minister, besides the fact that he is the son of Pierre Elliot Trudeau, another madcap Canadian politician who made the late 60s and the entire decade of the 70s so entertaining up north.

Mansplaining a woman about proper PC word usage

Trudeau was holding a town hall meeting at MacEwan University in Edmonton when a young woman affiliated with an organization called World Mission Society Church of God posed a question about how Canadian government policy might encourage volunteering by religious groups.

Apparently, unlike in the United States which promotes faith-based volunteering, Canada places severe restrictions on the practice. She finished her question by stating, “We came here today to ask you to also look into the policies that religious charitable organizations have in our legislations so that it can also be changed because maternal love is the love that's going to change the future of mankind.”

Something about the young woman’s use of nouns affronted Prime Minister Trudeau. He admonished the young woman, whose church is apparently feminist-oriented because it was not inclusive. “Peoplekind” would be the better word to use. The crowd ate it up, but Trudeau has come into widespread mocking.

One person on Twitter suggested that the first Canadian to land on the moon would be forced to say “One giant leap for peoplekind.”

What is wrong with Prime Minister Trudeau?

People on both sides of America’s northern border must wonder what is wrong with Prime Minister Trudeau. Jordan Peterson, a professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, sat down with "Fox and Friends" and had some insights into Trudeau’s psyche.

The Canadian Prime Minister is hard-wired to consider everything through the narrow lens of leftwing ideology rather than evidence and reason. Gender equality, taken to an OCD degree, seems to be a particular mania for Trudeau. Hence, he has a 50 50 split in his cabinet of men and women. Therefore, he is correcting the word usage of young women.

Say what you will about Trump, he tends to approach issues as problems to be solved. Is the economy sluggish? Then he says cut taxes and regulations. Is illegal immigration a problem? The American president proposes a wall and enhanced enforcement.

A Canadian Trump would not bother with PC word usage. He was set about, for example, trying to fix that country’s appalling healthcare system. He would also exercise a particular non-Canadian rudeness which the voters in that country would find off-putting, meaning that he would not get elected there.
