Just a day after Conservative MP Candice Bergen called out Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for not being a feminist, the husband of Liberal MP Catherine McKenna has followed suit.
It came as a bit of a shock to many that the Liberal MP’s husband, Scott Gilmore, spoke out against Trudeau. He commented on various topics including climate change, feminism and democratic reform.
“He doesn’t genuinely believe in any of the things he claims, be it feminism, climate change, democratic reform, or this. He is an empty vessel.”Scott Gilmore, Husband of MP Catherine McKenna, Editor-At-Large for Macleans.
Gilmore was commenting on the fact that Trudeau has continued to speak empty words in regards to fixing water advisories for First Nations reserves and supply them with clean drinking water.
He’s also commented that Trudeau has ran on this pledge twice saying The Prime Minister “is the only one person who is responsible for this.”
Gilmore has been highly critical of Trudeau recently also tweeting;
“Acting like a progressive effective leader is not the same as being a progressive, effective leader.”
Just yesterday, Bergen, MP for Portage-Lisgar, called out Trudeau in question period saying he is not a feminist while naming off several women he’s thrown under the bus like Jane Philpott and Jody Wilson-Raybould.
“This prime minister is not a feminist. … just ask the poor girl he groped in the Kokanees”Candice Bergen, Deputy Leader for CPC, MP for Portage-Lisgar
“One thing we do know is this Prime Minister is not a feminist. His record when it comes to the treatment of women is abysmal. Just ask the poor girl he groped in the Kokanees, or ask the member for Vancouver-Grandville or maybe Jane Philpott. How ’bout Selena Ceasar-Chavannes?,” said Bergen Wednesday.
“And Katie Telford you’re probably next when he’s done with you. Most importantly, ask the women in our military if they think this Prime Minister is a feminist. It will be a resounding no — isn’t that the sad truth Speaker?”
