In response to the childcare and economic plan proposed by
Canada’s Conservative Party, Canadian Prime Minister Justin
Trudeau recently called for countering the “she-cession”
and turning it into a “she-covery.” In 1980s
Valley Girl parlance, “gag me with a spoon.” I hope he didn’t think he was
Speaking of the COVID-19 pandemic, Trudeau, the
leader of Canada’s Liberal Party, said: “You can’t actually be serious about
recognizing what sort of challenges Canadian families and our Canadian society
has faced over the past 17 months without recognizing that women were and are
harder hit by this crisis than others.” Um, okay, sure.
He then touted the Liberals’ proposed “$10 a day”
child-care plan while claiming Conservatives don’t know how to foster a strong
economy: “It is exactly the example of the kinds of things you need to do to
counter the ‘she-cession’ and turn it into a ‘she-covery.’ Fact is, the
Conservatives don’t talk about that in their lengthy platform. They don’t talk
about feminism. They don’t talk about the impact on women of this crisis. And
that’s why their decision, far from being an exception or something that we can
blow past to reverse course on childcare, is actually at the heart of their misunderstanding
of how to grow a strong economy.”
What preposterously inane remarks in every respect. I
shecoiled when I heard them. Trudeau couldn’t have appeared any goofier if he
was wearing sheotards purchased at a cheap (sheap?) shetail store. I usually
try to give people some sheeway and never shemand perfection. And it’s not like
the Prime Minister was praising the aborting of shetuses. Still, I wonder if he
is deliberately trying to shestroy the English language. Does Trudeau only
butcher it when speaking, or does he do the same with his shemails and other
written correspondence? If the West is to shebound and be taken seriously ever
again, it will have to shed itself of politicians like Trudeau.
comments came just weeks before Canadians are set to vote in a snap election.
hope this boob is shefeated at the polls. If not, Canadians should
shemand a shecount.
