Ratings are more revealing of the mindset of the electorate than they are of the performance of the individual in question. The PM et al are trying to 'do right' by ALL of Canadians, whose interests and needs can vary greatly, rather than focus upon serving one particular segment of society to the exclusion/detriment of others. The Liberals support inclusion, diversity, tolerance-they recognize that we must be able to work together and work together well, in order to meet the challenges that are coming, if we are to have a chance at all.
In order to remove the barriers that divide us:
1-Refugees: My mom taught us well by her example: During a major snow storm, she welcomed a group of men who were snowmobiling in the area (rural) and got stranded, into her home. They overnighted and were able to get unstuck the following day after the ploughs came through. They showed up one more time at her door with armfuls of the best homemade Italian sausage...my mom simply could not shut her door in their faces. Could anyone reading this have shut the door in their faces? How is any migrant, be it as they are in desperate flight from wars and famines, different from the hapless snowmobiler? How is the PM behaving and differently (or humanely) than my dear mom?
2-Feminist-again, inclusiveness. In order to progress as a society we cannot exclude what nominally represents one half of the human race...hello? Equality of opportunity, along all of its dimensions, translates into maximal advantage for the society, along all of its dimensions. In Nature, the female is often the 'Queen Bee.' The male’s raison d'être is to defend the Queen and the nest. If humanity were to be true to itself and to Nature, not a single human female would be treated with anything less than the greatest love and respect.
3-'Pro-abortion'-is a misnomer. The PM is not 'pro-abortion' but rather PRO CHOICE. Choice over your body is a 'self-evident' and 'inalienable right.' This is only half the story. I have posted a more complete answer here:
4-'Islam-loving' - the practitioners of Islam are men, women, and children created by god. I do not capitalize 'god' out of disrespect for the Big Guy/Gal but rather out of the profoundest respect for all Faiths. There is not a single reason to exclude a follower of Islam-Mohammed Ali practiced Islam, and, albeit he was not perfect, in my book he was the greatest human being I have ever heard of, and I'm certain he made our Creator proud in his service to humanity, despite breaking a nose or two. There is every reason to include practitioners of Islam because they increase rather than decrease humanity's capabilities and chances for success in overcoming the many existential challenges humanity faces.
I'm not certain whose approval rating is lower and neither do I care. When I compare Trump to Trudeau I get the sense of a collision between the outgoing old order and the new order, or more precisely, the old order now finds itself face-to-face with the progressive vision of the generation now poised to takeover the reigns...'Young people speaking their minds, are getting so much resistance, from behind.' Do you remember the song? For What It's Worth by Buffalo Springfield. The lyric is as pertinent today as it was to the decade it was written. The 'resistance' to the upcoming generation is coming from the right. The right emphasizes tradition and the old ways, at least that is what they would like us to think. The truth is, they emphasize only those aspects of tradition that will help them to aggrandize their wealth and control. My mother was 'forever young.' She never lost her light, even though she grew up poor and had to grow up early. She never lost her love for children or her compassion for those who could use her help. Her help she never refused ANYONE.
I suppose she could outgrow being a child in her heart, though she had to grow up and inherit the cares of the adult world. Her heart was her vision.
Her vision is Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's vision as well. Contrast this with Trump’s. If Justin is trailing Donald, ask yourself:
‘What do approval ratings say about us ‘approvers?’
