OnCanada Project is a social advocacy group made up of neighbourhood nerds who are here to dismantle the status quo and champion change in our lives.
Conservative Party leader, Pierre Poilievre, is a far-right global superstar.
Poilievre took photos with someone wearing a neon green "straight pride" shirt this summer- and then, to counteract it, released a statement saying he didn't know what the shirt said.
And in a classic one-bird-two-stones political maneuver (or, if you prefer, a one-two punch), he feeds his base who believe anti-queer disinformation AND placates moderates who are glad he's released a statement in "allyship" ()
It would be impressive if it weren't horrifying.
And this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Pierre's dangerous actions this summer aren't just his 'reputation era' - it's a horrifying pattern of behaviour.
And the worst part is that Pierre is a career politician who knows exactly what he's doing AND how to get away with it.
Pierre Poilievre's consistent commitment to far-right conspiracy theories and harmful ideologies is horrifying.
Because when the leader of Canada’s right-wing party embraces far-right ideologies for his own political gain, that means they aren’t really far-right anymore, are they? They’re just the right.
If history is any indication, Pierre could be the next prime minister - which means we’ll have a Trump-in-sheeps-clothing as Canada's PM.
The fact that all of his dangerous behaviour is seen as "politics as usual" should shock and concern you — especially if you wholeheartedly disagree with the spreading of hate, division, and far-right ideologies in Canada.
