A Conservative MP Now Has A Petition Against Trudeau's 'Reset' Comment From September
The PM said that we can "reimagine economic systems."
Nowcomment from back in September has led a Conservative MP to start a petition going against what he said.
MP Pierre Poilievre shared his petition to "STOP THE GREAT RESET" on Twitter on November 17, almost two months after the Prime Minister made spoke about it.
Poilievre tweeted that "Trudeau says COVID is his big 'chance' to impose his 'reimagined' society" but that's not entirely accurate.
Trudeau didn't say this was his big chance like the tweet implies and he also didn't mention anything about reimagining society, just economic systems.
This pandemic has provided an opportunity for a reset.
While speaking at a United Nations video conference on September 29, Trudeau talked about Canada's role in helping fight COVID-19 around the world.
"This pandemic has provided an opportunity for a reset. This is our chance to accelerate our pre-pandemic efforts to reimagine economic systems that actually address global challenges like extreme poverty, inequality and climate change," he said.
In the petition, Poilievre quoted what Trudeau said about the reset.
Though he left out the part about how reimagined economic systems would address issues like poverty, inequality and the environment.
The MP's petition wants the government to end plans for the reset, to instead focus on protecting the lives of hardworking people and protect freedom.
