Canada Proud paying people to wear banana costumes, push anti-Trudeau campaign - 2019-06-17
OTTAWA – If you are on Sparks Street just off of Parliament Hill in Ottawa on Tuesday, you may come across the latest evolution of conservative political advocacy group Canada Proud's anti-Prime Minister Justin Trudeau campaign: people in banana costumes.
The national iteration of the anti-Liberal social media group Ontario Proud launched earlier this year with the focus of seeing Liberals and Trudeau defeated in the October federal election.
Part of this campaign has been the creation of a website and hashtag #TrudeauIsBananas. The webpage produced by Canada Proud states that before the federal election, voters should question "if he's ripe for another term," offers a limited "unpeeling" of Trudeaus record, and includes an acrostic poem of sorts, claiming Trudeau "builds absolutely nothing, anytime near anything."
