The $250 downtown Toronto Ladies Night (see here) attendees might have thought Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau answering the question posed of which country he most admired after Canada was China hilarious but I highly doubt many other Canadians will:
You know, there’s a level of admiration I actually have for China because their basic dictatorship is allowing them to actually turn their economy around on a dime and say ‘we need to go green fastest…we need to start investing in solar.’ I mean there is a flexibility that I know Stephen Harper must dream about of having a dictatorship that he can do everything he wanted that I find quite interesting. (see here)
Stating you love the idea of a Communist dictatorship would kill any other politician’s career but we all know the Media Party will swarm to protect Trudeau.
Regardless, it’s another ready-made ad for the Conservatives to show he’s not even close to being PM material.
