Justin Trudeau Says He Admires the "Basic Dictatorship" of China
Clip 1: CBC News (November 9th, 2013)
Clip 2: CBC News (November 10th, 2013)
When speaking at an event called 'Ladies Night' on November 7th, 2013, Justin Trudeau explains why he admires the communist Chinese.
There wasn't a report that provided the entire question along with the entire answer from Trudeau, so I combined pieces of two separate reports from CBC News.
full report from clip 2:
Justin Trudeau (November 7th, 2013): "There’s a level of admiration I actually have for China. Their basic dictatorship is actually allowing them to turn their economy around on a dime, and say, ‘we need to go greenest fastest,’ y’know, ‘we need to start investing in solar.’ There is a flexibility that I know Stephen Harper must dream about, of having a dictatorship that he can do everything he wanted, uh, that I find quite interesting."
"The $250 event takes place at The Burroughs Building in Toronto’s west end at 7 p.m. Thursday. A volunteer for the event said it is primarily focused on women but men can also attend."
"It’s being billed as 'Justin Unplugged,' and promises to give ticket buyers a chance to 'really get to know the future prime minister.'"
"Approximately 100 mostly female guests chatted loudly over glasses of wine and bowls of candy at a trendy downtown Toronto event space as they waited for Mr. Trudeau, who removed his suit jacket, undid his top shirt button and loosened his tie before taking the stage to a warm welcome."
"During the event, which itself was widely criticized for sexist and patronizing undertones, an audience member asked Mr. Trudeau which nation’s 'administration he most admired.'...While on CBC TV’s Power and Politics, Mr. Trudeau noted the concerns swirling around the takeover of natural resources by a Chinese state-owned entity would be similar to those of a takeover by a Scandinavian state-owned entity...His prime minister father, the late Pierre Elliott Trudeau, was sometimes accused of a predilection for communist authoritarian regimes. According to Bob Plamondon’s recent book, The Truth About Trudeau, the elder Mr. Trudeau was complimentary toward several leftist regimes in his day, including Soviet Russia, Fidel Castro’s Cuba and China under Chairman Mao. In 1952, Mr. Trudeau travelled to China with members of the Communist Party of Canada. Later, he supported the Soviet-dominated authorities who imposed martial law in Poland. He also admired the Siberian city of Norilsk until a Soviet dissident reminded him that the town had been built by prison labour."
"The 'basic dictatorship' of China is to be admired for its environmental record. Solar panels and all that."
"Trudeau has expressed a disturbing and obsequious admiration for both China’s 'basic dictatorship' and now to Cuba and its 'longest-serving president,' Fidel Castro, who died on 25 November 2016...Trudeau categorically and unequivocally expressed his 'admiration' for a 'basic dictatorship' that has since 1949 committed various atrocities, including — like all Communist regimes — mass murder of political opponents and forced famines that starved to death millions of peasants in Mao’s Great Leap Forward."
"China's not green, and it's not a free-market economy and the dictatorship of the Communist Party remains intact. The internet is relentlessly censored; human rights are violated every day; courts are under the thumb of the party; and corruption is so pervasive that party bosses accumulate vast fortunes while dissidents rot in jail for thought crimes."
