‘I won’t apologize’: Justin Trudeau doubles down on calling trucker protesters ‘tin foil’ conspiracy theorists

During a recent interview with CTV NewsPrime Minister Justin Trudeau doubled down on his comments on the 2022 trucker protest, calling some of the activists “tin foil” conspiracy theorists who engage in “disinformation” and “misinformation.”

The Canadian leader retracted his earlier comments, calling the people he was referring to a “small minority” within the “movements” who are spreading “harmful lies”.

“These people, and they were a small minority within the larger ‘anti’ movements who were really vocal, I don’t apologize and I won’t apologize for calling people who were harming their compatriots in Canada ‘ Trudeau said.

“So, ‘Alu Hats’ comment, don’t you regret it?” asked CTV’s Omar Sachedina.

“If someone thinks your government is trying to inject you with a vaccine to control your mind and haunt you and puts a microchip in it, that’s almost the definition of a government conspiracy theory you wear a tinfoil hat to, um protect your brain brainwaves,” concluded Trudeau.

However, this statement by the prime minister differs from his statements at the beginning of the protests, when he described the demonstration as a whole as a “marginal minority”.

In January 2022Trudeau said the views expressed by “a few people who have gathered in Ottawa” are a “continuation of what we’ve sadly seen of disinformation and misinformation online — conspiracy theorists about microchips, about God knows, what else goes with the aluminum foil hats”.

He also noted that other Canadians “watched in disgust and disbelief.” [the] conduct” of the protest, “and wonder how that could have happened in our country’s capital.”

At the time, Trudeau also referred to “Nazi symbolism, racist imagery and desecration of war memorials” during the protests, although the details were not exactly clear several investigations in a Nazi flag and a Confederate flag seen during the first days of the city’s shutdown. supposedly demonstrators urinated on a war memorial; However, no charges were ever brought.

In late 2021, Trudeau said the unvaccinated were “often mysoginists” and “racists,” but also called them “extremists” who “don’t believe in science.”

Justin Trudeau also boasted in the Interview end of 2022 that “people went out and got vaccinated at a higher rate than almost any other country,” indicating an overall figure vaccination rate of 80.5% for the whole country.
