Old accusations notwithstanding, when the hashtag resurfaced this year, evidence that there has been a lot of organic interest in the prime minister’s resignation across the internet were recycled by liberal experts.

To allay suspicions and to show how diverse Trudeau’s critics are, Canadians began posting video testimonies instead of just posting photos and text.

We’ve watched you trample women with horses, you block single parent bank accounts so they can’t even pay for their children’s education and medicine, they can’t pay utilities…”

German MEP Christine Anderson criticized Prime Minister for “trespassing on fundamental rights by persecuting and criminalizing his own citizens as terrorists simply because they dared to oppose his own perverse understanding of democracy”.
