Trudeau’s New Slogan “Just Watch Me” [videos included]

Back in October of 2012, we had a chance to ask Justin Trudeau some real questions. One of them was would he would correct his fathers wrongs (in relation to the Bank of Canada)? In response he stated that he was not there to defend his fathers legacy.
But now it seems that he has no problem using his fathers legacy, when it suits him best (big surprise there).
On a near-empty Porter Airlines flight from Halifax to Ottawa Tuesday evening, Trudeau was sent a note from a fellow passenger asking: “Can you really beat Harper?”
“Just watch me,” Trudeau wrote back, invoking Pierre Trudeau’s famous phrase during the 1970 October Crisis.
The “just watch me” quote became famous during the October Crisis of 1970. When the Front de libération du Québec (FLQ) kidnapped British Trade Consul James Cross. Then five days later, Quebec Labour Minister Pierre Laporte was also kidnapped and murdered. Trudeau responded by invoking the War Measures Act (the same measure that was used for the Toronto G20 summit), which gave the government sweeping powers of arrest and detention without trial. Trudeau also brought in the military for policing actions.
CBC’s Tim Ralfe, grilled Trudeau on his creation of a full out police state on October 13 1970.
Ralfe asked, how far he would go to maintain law and order amid the Front de libération du Québec (FLQ) kidnappings.
“How far would you go with that? How far would you extend that?” Pierre responded “just watch me”.
It really is incredible that a man who is trying to become our next prime minister is able to use his fathers quotes, from a period that saw a province turned into a complete totalitarian police state. And John Q public along with the main stream media is just eating it up. This truly is a sign of our times!
