No wonder we're angry

The time is long overdue to define the difference between hate and anger, and to challenge Prime Minister Trudeau’s attempts to paint us all as racists and bigots.

According to a recent Canadian Press news item, “The country's top public servant received profanity-laced social-media messages calling him garbage, a traitor, a loser and a liar after defending the Trudeau government's conduct in the SNC-Lavalin affair.”

Hate is like a vitriolic anger that on a bad day might motivate somebody to seriously hurt or even kill somebody.

The sentiments expressed in Privy Council Clerk Michael Wernick’s emails are in all likelihood nothing more, and nothing less than expressions of anger and frustration over the callous and irresponsible ways our federal Liberal government is dealing with the more important and complex issues facing our nation, and justifiably so.

Reflecting on some of the more controversial decisions Trudeau has made recently, like lying to the people about scrapping our colonial electoral system, buying a $4.5-billion pipeline with our tax dollars, and the alleged corrupt relationships between our federal governments and SNC-Lavalin, it’s no wonder the people are angry.
