Convoy-crushing Trudeau credited for spurring separatist movement

A Canadian-based conservative activist says the separatist movement is growing in the so-called prairie provinces and the reason is Justin Trudeau, the country’s controversial prime minister.

As we have reported on AFN, Justin Trudeau recently announced that his Liberal Party has reached an agreement with the far-leftist New Democratic Party to keep his party in power until 2025. That political deal came after Trudeau cracked down on dissent, shutting down the peaceful Freedom Convoy that had camped out in Ottawa for three weeks and called for an end to his draconian COVID-19 mandates.

Brian Rushfeldt, an Alberta resident and a longtime conservative activist, says people in his part of the country have had enough of Trudeau after Canadians witnessed their prime minister attack the truckers.

“And we may see a strong separatist movement where we get enough support in Alberta for us to separate as a province and separate from Canada,” he predicts. “This is going to drive the separatist movement even stronger."

The activist tells AFN the separatist movement is strong in Saskatchewan, too, and Manitoba is a right-leaning province that has been on the fence for a long time.

“So it is a possibility that they could join,” he says, “and the three provinces could declare separation."

Rushfeldt also points out Trudeau's actions in recent months were not viewed warmly by other world leaders. In the European Union, a Croation official said Trudeau had engaged in "dictatorship of the worst kind," and a German official called Canada's prime minister a "disgrace for any democracy."

"It's amazing how people from Europe," Rushfeldt observes, "can see through this man and see what kind of a liar and dishonest man he is."
