Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is blaming the current wildfires in his country on ‘climate change’ despite being warned for many years that Canada needed better forest management to avoid the disaster that is now playing out. By request of Trudeau, President Biden dispatched a contingent of 600 American firefighters to Canada to aid in the ongoing battle against the wildfires.

The severity of these fires gained significant attention as a dense cloud of smoke blew southward, resulting in New York City experiencing the most hazardous air quality compared to any other location worldwide. The smoke has now spread to Washington D.C. and Baltimore.

Here are five things to know about the progressive Justin Trudeau…

1) Trudeau is a Canadian politician and the 23rd Prime Minister of Canada, serving since 2015. He is the leader of the Liberal Party of Canada and has been re-elected multiple times. He is the son of former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau.

2) Trudeau is known for his progressive and liberal-based policies. He has enacted policies based on climate change, gender equality, ethnic diversity, carbon pricing, and refugee admittance.

3) His political career has also been marked by controversies, such as the “blackface” scandal, where old photos and videos emerged showing him wearing blackface makeup. His government has faced scrutiny over issues like ethics violations, implementation of censorship on its constituents, and for imposing strict COVID lockdowns and vaccine mandates.

4) The Prime Minister of Canada has had a complex relationship with China. Trudeau has praised China as a model country and has tried to establish closer economic ties and engagement with President Xi. But Canada has also been a punching bag for China, including recent reports about Chinese spies meddling in Canadian elections. Many criticize Trudeau for being weak on standing up against China; some even suspect he is a puppet to the Chinese.

5) He has faced negative poll feedback from Canadian citizens during many periods of his tenure as prime minister. In recent years, his approval ratings have dropped sharply, especially with his handling of the trucker protest from last year.
