Horror show: Trudeau as king

In a kingdom, it’s the job of the royal family to appear to the public as a caring unit to the people.

In a kingdom, it’s the job of the royal family to appear to the public as a caring unit to the people.

That role is assigned and doesn’t take away from running the country as it’s part of its system.

In a democracy, however, this style certainly should not be employed to the extent our current leader is involved and partakes.

It seems to me that every talk show and interview with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is a sign the real duties are not dealt with. Democracy for that matter also has its bases in non-genetically-related leadership. In Trudeau’s case, both are ignored.

Where does that leave the people? With a leader who acts like a king, losing their democracy to genetics.

I see more opposition already than Stephen Harper got during his time in office, with the exception of election time. The Liberals sure got their momentum then. And just as in Hollywood, the “who you know” has becomes more important than “what you know.”

Now I don’t mind that so much when it comes to watching a movie, but when it comes to my life and security for my family and kids, it feels like a real, live horror movie, with bad acting to boot.
