As if the world of political correctness wasn’t bad enough, Justin Trudeau has made it worse during a town hall meeting.
The Canadian Prime Minister was hosting the meeting at MacEwan University in Edmonton on Thursday, when a young woman from the World Mission Society Church of God asked a question.
Via the Daily Mail: Canadian regulations reportedly place restrictions on volunteering with religious organizations, and the young woman wanted Trudeau to make it easier for her church to do volunteer work.
‘We have received the Queen’s Award in the UK, we have received many awards,’ said the woman from the controversial feminist church founded in South Korea.
‘We have received many awards, however, unfortunately in Canada, our volunteering as a religious charitable organization is extremely difficult.
‘We came here today to ask you to also look into the policies that religious charitable organizations have in our legislations so that it can also be changed because maternal love is the love that’s going to change the future of mankind.’
Trudeau interrupted her, in this moment, and said: ‘We like to say peoplekind, not necessarily mankind ’cause it’s more inclusive.’
‘There you go!’ she replied, as the audience applauded the comment.
‘We can all learn from each other,’ Trudeau added.
But although Trudeau’s comment was well-received at the town hall, on Twitter, it elicited a flurry of criticism accusing him of mansplaining and taking political correctness a step too far.
‘Is Justin Trudeau mansplaining feminism?’ wrote one Twitter user.
Ben McDonald wrote: ‘Justin Trudeau correcting a girl for saying ‘mankind’ is truly amazing.’
‘That’s one woke himbo.’ Rita Panahi joked.
