Annamie Paul Blasted Justin Trudeau For Not Being A 'Real Feminist' During Election Debate

The first and only Federal Leaders' English debate as part of the Canadian Federal Election 2021 got underway on September 9, and it got off to a fiery start thanks to a heated exchange between Annamie Paul and Justin Trudeau.

"I have said before and I'll say again tonight that I do not believe that Mr. Trudeau is a real feminist," said Paul when speaking on leadership and accountability.

"A feminist doesn't continue to push strong women out of his party when they are just seeking to serve and I will say their names tonight and thank them," she continued. "Thank you Jane Philpott, thank you Jody Wilson-Raybould, thank you Celina Caesar-Chavannes. I'm here tonight thanks to the work that you have done."

"I am the only woman other than Elizabeth May to be on this platform in the past 18 years," she said. "The Liberal Party has never had a woman leader. I think it's time for the party to examine its priorities."

"I think Ms. Paul, you'll perhaps understand that I won't take lessons on caucus management from you," responded Trudeau.

This isn't the first time Paul has spoken out about Trudeau's position as a feminist. During a press conference in June, she told reporters that he was "no ally" and "no feminist."
