Trudeau testifies he never called unvaccinated Canadians disparaging names
In 2021, Trudeau accused the unvaccinated of being misogynists and racists, questioning whether such people should even be tolerated in society.
(LifeSiteNews) — While testifying under oath before the Public Order Emergency Commission today, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau denied ever calling “unvaccinated” Canadians names, despite referring to the vaccine-free as “misogynists” and “racists” who deny science just last year.
“I did not call people who are unvaccinated names,” said Trudeau in response to a question from Freedom Convoy lawyer Eva Chipiuk.

Chipiuk, pressing Trudeau on the issue, made reference to the now “widely published comments” he made last year “calling the unvaccinated racist and misogynist.”
“And we have heard testimony in this inquiry about how some of your officials wanted to label protesters as terrorists. Would you agree with me that one of the most important roles of a prime minister is to unite Canadians and not divide them by engaging in name-calling?” asked Chipiuk.
Trudeau responded by saying “I highlighted, there is a difference between people who are hesitant to get vaccinated for any range of reasons and people who deliberately spread misinformation that puts at risk the life and health of their fellow Canadians.”
Trudeau’s testimony seems to contradict at least two statements he made on video about unvaccinated Canadians.
