The importance of remembering the sacrifice made by veterans is lost in Trudeau’s Canada.
The City of Halifax has announced it will no longer be holding a Remembrance Day ceremony, sparking anger from critics.
Instead, the ceremony will be held in the neighbouring city of Dartmouth, forcing elderly residents to cross the harbour via the Angus L. Macdonald bridge.
“I don’t think it should be relocated. Dartmouth is not around the corner from Halifax. People are going to have to come over the bridge, and where is everybody going to park?” a concerned Halifax resident told local media.
The City of Halifax placed the blame on the legion, saying it was its choice to move the ceremony to another city. However, it is the City’s role to provide space, and both groups are responsible for organizing the event.
Conservative Party leader Pierre Poilievre placed the blame on Justin Trudeau, saying in an X (Twitter) post that the ceremony was moved due to a housing encampment in downtown Halifax.
“In Halifax, they are moving the Remembrance Day ceremony from the downtown because the homeless encampment there is the only home many, including our veterans, can find. Shameful. Sad. But the reality after 8 years of Trudeau’s housing hell.”
Poilievre plans to fix the housing crisis by removing red tape and providing financial incentives to home-builders.
