A number of members of the European Parliament have taken aim at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for his harsh crackdown on the country’s Freedom Convoy truckers.
Justin Trudeau received an extremely hostile reception in Brussels from a number of MEPs on Wednesday, who criticized the leader of the Liberal Party for his crackdown on the Freedom Convoy protests that took place in his country more early in the year.
Trudeau went to the Assembly of the European Union to call on European leaders to start “strengthening our democracies” to better face Russian President Vladimir Putin.
However, Trudeau’s pleas have somewhat backfired, with MPs accusing the leader of hypocrisy given his crackdown on anti-lockdown protests across his country.

“Justin Trudeau cannot come and lecture Putin on democracy in the European Parliament as he walks in spiked boots on the fundamental rights of Canadians,” said Cristian Terhes, Romanian MEP from the Conservatives and Reform Group. Europeans (ECR), at Breitbart London.
“People are now forced to choose between Russian imperialist tyranny, promoted by Putin, and neo-Marxist tyranny promoted by hypocritical leaders like Trudeau, in which people are deprived of their rights and freedoms and become objects of State,” he continued. .
“We must reject these two tyrannical options and fight for the same conservative values that brought peace through prosperity to Europe: national sovereignty, individual freedom and respect for human rights,” Terhes concluded.
Other MEPs came out just as harshly against the Canadian leader, with Christine Anderson to aim to the political leader’s past praise for China’s “grassroots dictatorship.”
“[I]It would have been more appropriate for Mr. Trudeau – Prime Minister of Canada – to address this House in accordance with Article 144,” the Alternative for Germany (AfD) politician began. “An article that was specifically designed to discuss violations of human rights, democracy and the rule of law, which is clearly the case of Mr. Trudeau.”
“Here again, a prime minister who openly admires China’s ‘grassroots dictatorship’, which flouts fundamental rights by persecuting and criminalizing its own citizens as terrorists, simply because they dared to oppose its evil design of democracy, should not be allowed to speak in this house at all,” she continued.
“Mr. Trudeau, you are a disgrace to any democracy,” Anderson concluded. “Please spare us your presence.”
Prime Minister Trudeau, in recent months, under your quasi-liberal boot, Canada has become a symbol of civil rights abuses. The methods we witnessed may be liberal for you, but for many citizens around the world it looked like dictatorship of the worst kind. pic.twitter.com/FZuc6aDZ1I

Another MEP, Mislav Kolakusic from Croatia, also had choice words for Justin Trudeau regarding his recent actions.
“Canada, once a symbol of the modern world, has become a symbol of civil rights abuses under your quasi-liberal boot in recent months,” said the Croatian MEP.
“We’ve seen how you trample women with horses, how you freeze single parents’ bank accounts so they can’t even pay for their children’s education and medicine,” he continued. “That they can’t pay for utilities [or] mortgages for their homes.
“For you, maybe these are liberal methods,” Kolakusic said. “For many citizens of the world, this is a dictatorship of the worst kind.”

The criticism leveled by MEPs against the Canadian prime minister is by no means new, with many around the world denouncing Trudeau for his draconian actions against the Freedom Convoy truckers’ movement.
However, despite all this criticism, Trudeau has just managed to reach an agreement with the New Democratic Party of Canada (NDP) further strengthening his political position until 2025 under a “supply and confidence” agreement.
This despite Trudeau currently leading a minority government, which relies on external support to pass laws.
“Governments with a minority of seats in parliament, like the one Trudeau currently leads, tend to last around two years on average, but this rare written agreement could allow him to last the full four-year term after the US election. last year,” said a report on the unprecedented written agreement noted — Trudeau reportedly expressed a desire to stay in power long after that point.
