Trudeau Slammed After Lying He Never 'Forced' Anyone To Take COVID-19 Vaccine

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tried to lie to an audience on Monday at the University of Ottawa, lying that he never forced anybody to get the Covid-19 vaccine, despite his government legislating some of the strictest vaccine mandates in the world.

Justin Trudeau faces criticism for claiming he never 'forced' anyone to get COVID-19 vaccine

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is facing criticism for claiming that he never forced anyone to get the Covid-19 vaccine, despite his government legislating some of the strictest vaccine mandates in the world.

In a speech on Monday at the University of Ottawa, Trudeau said that he "never forced anyone to get vaccinated" and that he "chose to make sure that all of the incentives and protections were there to encourage Canadians to get vaccinated."

However, Trudeau's government implemented a number of policies that effectively forced people to get vaccinated, including:

  • Requiring federal employees to be vaccinated or be fired.
  • Requiring truckers who cross the Canada-US border to be vaccinated.
  • Requiring students in most provinces to be vaccinated in order to attend school.
  • Requiring people to be vaccinated in order to enter many public places, such as restaurants, bars, and gyms.

These policies made it difficult or impossible for many people to participate in society without getting vaccinated. As a result, many people felt that they were being forced to get vaccinated, even if they did not want to.

Trudeau's comments on Monday have drawn criticism from both the left and the right. Some people on the left have accused Trudeau of gaslighting, or trying to make people question their own memories. Some people on the right have accused Trudeau of being dishonest and of trying to cover up his government's authoritarian policies.

It is unclear whether Trudeau's comments will have any impact on public opinion. However, they have certainly raised questions about the government's handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and about whatever left anyway from Trudeau's own credibility
