A video showing The Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau interacting with supporters and being approached by an agitated individual has surfaced online.
Mr. Trudeau is seen waving to those waiting to see him in the video, which has been going viral on Twitter.
In the footage, Trudeau can be seen approaching a man in the crowd and extending a greeting. He then says that he will not be shaking Trudeau’s hand and curses at him.
When challenged by an incensed Canadian citizen on the streets, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada reacted by asking him how he had messed up the country. Can anyone afford a home in our country? the unknown Canadian said in response to Trudeau’s criticism in the popular video from X.
A guy is heard in the video blaming the prime minister of Canada of “f***ing” up the nation. Photographers refused to shake hands with Trudeau and gave him a hard time during the encounter, which was recorded on tape. The argumentative discussion centered on a number of topics, including the nation’s housing problem, the carbon tax, and help to Ukraine.
Rising taxes and on-going housing crisis
The man complains about Trudeau’s carbon tax despite the fact that the prime minister was waiting for him to return with “9 V8s idling” at the time.
Social media users have been critiquing Justin Trudeau, the prime minister, after the video went viral.
The Canadian leader transferred the burden on local governments, claiming that housing is not a federal duty.
The Trudeau administration attributes Canada’s issue of housing affordability on an inflow of immigrants and foreign students who have increased demand for housing. The scenario has made Canadians displeased, and most polls indicate that the prime minister’s Liberal Party will lose leadership to the Conservatives.
A diplomatic dispute between India and Canada over the latter’s allegations that New Delhi was involved in the killing of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar on Canadian soil is playing out in the backdrop of Trudeau’s fight with a man.
According to a new survey, Trudeau’s standing with people is declining, and if elections were conducted right now, the Conservatives, led by opposition leader Pierre Poilievre, would win. Trudeau was rated as the worst Canadian prime minister in more than 50 years by a different survey.
Canada’s aid to Ukraine
The guy then lashes out at the Canadian prime minister for giving Ukraine approximately $10 billion in tax dollars. Then, Trudeau rejects his comments as “Russian Propaganda” and walks away. During the conversation, Trudeau dismissed the remarks as being a product of Russian propaganda. Trudeau then responded to him by commenting that he has been listening to Putin. He also added, “You know a lot of Russian disinformation,” and then he turned and walked away.
Inflation in Canada
Consumer inflation has risen progressively during the past year, increasing by 6.8% in April 2022 from the previous year. Price increases are mostly caused by reasons like increased customer demand and supply chain difficulties.
From April 19 to May 1, 2022, Statistics Canada conducted the Portrait of Canadian Society survey to see how rising costs are impacting Canadians’ ability to make ends meet or how they are influencing their financial decisions.
It was discovered that almost three in four Canadians said that rising costs are making it harder for them to pay for necessities like clothing, food, shelter, and transportation. Many Canadians are changing their conduct as a result to cope with this new reality, such as altering their spending patterns and deferring the purchase of houses or even moving out.
