As I’ve mentioned before, ever since the good Prince Justin toppled the evil King Harper, I’ve feel like I’m living in some kind of fairy tale.
A really nice one.
Trudeau is wowing people in this country and all over the world, for some of the princely moves he’s been making …
As well as for his sunny personality, and his coolness.
And of course for having crushed and humiliated the depraved tyrant Stephen Harper, and liberated Canada from his nightmare rule.
So I wasn’t surprised to see that when he visited a government building in Ottawa, civil servants gave him a rock star reception.
Hundreds of usually buttoned-down federal civil servants gave Justin Trudeau and other members of his cabinet a rock-star reception Friday at the Lester B. Pearson building in downtown Ottawa.
In a routine that’s become familiar in the three weeks since his Liberals won a surprise majority mandate on Oct. 19, Trudeau waded into the crowds wearing a huge grin and clutching hands. After running the gauntlet of hundreds of cheering employees, the prime minister made a short impromptu address in both official languages.
And I thought it was a great and happy scene.
So I wasn’t too impressed to see this from Michael Petrou, a senior writer at Macleans.
And see that on the CBC program Power and Politics, a National Post writer, and one from the Globe joined all the others in denouncing that warm reception …
Which I thought was absurd and made them all look like pompous prigs or asses.
For how did those reporters expect those civil servants to react after Justin Trudeau just liberated them from ten years of bullying and intimidation at the hands of Harper and his political thugs?
And had just announced that he was taking off their muzzles.
Have they no idea how that must feel?
And how dare those writers accuse those civil servants of lacking impartiality? When most of the MSM, which is supposed to be relentlessly impartial, kissed Stephen Harper’s ass from the beginning to the end of the Con regime.
Talk about hypocrisy.
But then of course there’s also something else. An unfortunate tendency in this country to want to tear down anyone who is too successful or too popular.
Or treat optimism like some kind of disease …
Or try to make us as cynical or as grim, or as boring as they are.
But I can’t live like that. I believe that optimism and hope are everything. And that you can’t change the world without them.’
Or for that matter get through a Canadian winter …
I know that something good is happening here.
Just like when I see that some of my friends in the Scottish highlands are so envious of Trudeau’s plan to legalize marijuana they want to emigrate here, I know that we are cool again.
And I want this fairy tale to go on as long as possible …
And I’m going to keep celebrating that and this …
For as long as I possibly can.
Because after the grim Harper years it feels so good and so magical.
We do all deserve it.
And at least in the place where I live, it is looking like Canada again …
The lights are going on, the nightmare is over.
In a few days they’ll be making ice in that rink.
And if those pompous prigs in the MSM don’t understand why so many Canadians are so happy.
They don’t know their own people.
And don’t know what freedom feels like …
