Dear Editor,

Justin Trudeau has a message for every Canadian fed up with his failure to manage the crisis on our border:

“Don’t you dare question me.”

In Quebec, when he was asked a simple question about the border crisis, Justin Trudeau immediately launched a personal attack instead of taking responsibility for his actions.

This is a pattern with Liberals whenever they’re criticized.

They called Ontario cabinet minister Lisa Macleod “un-Canadian” for asking about the border crisis and they called Conservative deputy leader Lisa Raitt a “Neanderthal” for questioning the budget.

Remember, it was Justin Trudeau who haphazardly tweeted out #WelcomeToCanada in response to an American policy change back in 2017. It was his choice to invite over 30,000 people to illegally cross Canada’s border, leading to major delays in our immigration system, impacting thousands of lawful claimants and financially straining our provincial social assistance programs.

For well over a year, Canada’s Conservatives have been demanding to see a plan from the Liberal government that addresses real effects of this border crisis on our communities.

Sadly, Justin Trudeau has still failed to present one.

Instead, they have chosen to dodge accountability for their poor choices by responding to criticism with personal attacks.

A Conservative government under Andrew Scheer will be strong and ready to regain control of our borders, prioritize refugees from the world’s most dangerous countries, and make sure that those who obey the law are treated fairly.

Sincerely,

Karen Vecchio, MP

Shadow Minister for Families, Children and Social Development

Member of Parliament for Elgin-Middlesex-London
