It’s the end of 2017 and this year was Canada’s worst for a Prime Minister due to the simple fact that PM Justin Trudeau was the first Prime Minister to break the law after a year-long investigation.
Trudeau was found guilty of breaking ethnic rules during his vacationed on a private island owned by the Aga Khan last Christmas season by taking a private helicopter to get there.
Trudeau apologized for his action and many Canadians don’t feel like that’s enough, many even said Trudeau needs to step down.
Trudeau made the headlines a few more times when the government approved a $10.5 million settlement to former Guantanamo Bay prisoner Omar Khadr claiming his rights were violated.
Another reason for the worst year as a Canadian Prime Minister in 2017 is that Trudeau said returning Jihadists can be “An Extraordinarily Powerful Voice”
I’ll leave it at that.
I have to stop asking if Trudeau can get any dumber…he seems to take it as a challenge. pic.twitter.com/CacsnVxIze
