Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau grandstanded on Tuesday announcing that Russia’s aggression towards Ukraine will be met with “severe consequences” and sanctions, while he continued to invoke the authoritarian Emergencies Act and clamp down on supporters of the “Freedom Convoy.”

Displaying a complete lack of self-awareness, Trudeau blustered over Russia with meaningless threats and toothless sanctions, saying, “Russia’s brazen provocations are a threat to security and peace in the world.”

“Russia’s flagrant disregard for the independence of a sovereign nation is a serious threat to security and stability in the region and around the world,” he said. “Canada and our allies will defend democracy. We are taking these actions today in a stand against authoritarianism.”

Attempting to provide a united government front, but instead appearing more dictatorial, Trudeau was flanked by Canada’s finance, foreign affairs, and defense ministers while he spoke of standing against Russia. He announced that Canada will deploy approximately 460 members of the Canadian Forces to Operation Reassurance in Europe and is pledging to boost support for the NATO Response Force.

“Let us be clear, the invasion has started,” Foreign Affairs Minister Mélanie Joly proclaimed, according to Politico. “Our response begins today.”

The prime minister announced that his country will sanction members of the Russian parliament who voted to recognize two breakaway territories in eastern Ukraine.

“This is a further invasion of a sovereign state,” Trudeau stated. “And it is completely unacceptable.”

He also announced that Canadians will be banned from financial dealings with the so-called Luhansk and Donetsk People’s Republics.

Politico is reporting that Trudeau is set to make “a significant announcement” related to Canadian exports to Russia as well.

“Just as Russia has prepared for this day, so have we,” Joly asserted. “Canada and its partners have been clear — the actions of the Russian regime will be met with severe consequences.”

Trudeau declared during his speech that Canadians will be prohibited from purchasing Russian sovereign debt.

“We will apply additional sanctions onto state-backed Russian banks and prevent any financial dealings with them,” he threatened.

Joly also claimed that this was “just the beginning” of actions against Russia and that the government will make it illegal for Canadians to fund Russia, directly or indirectly, saying, “We are prepared to target even more of Russia’s financial sector and oligarchs.”

Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland warned that the economic costs will be severe. That, however, is in doubt as a number of experts believe that through an alliance with China, Russia is pretty much sanction-proof.

“Our quarrel is not with the Russian people,” she pointed out. “It is with President Vladimir Putin and those around him who are making the choice to threaten a sovereign democracy with subjugation.”

When asked what Canada wants to see from Russia by The Canadian Press, Trudeau weakly responded, “We are looking for Russia to stand down, to cease its violations of Ukrainian sovereignty, Ukrainian territorial integrity, to return to negotiation tables.”

While Canadian officials take a so-called tough stance on Russia, they are also clamping down on “Freedom Convoy” protesters who have been roughed up and trampled by Canadian police. Many who have supported the protests have been arrested and have had their credit and bank accounts frozen. A leader of the convoy has been denied bail. Trucks and vehicles were seized and now the mayor of Ottawa is threatening to sell them rather than return the property.

Many contend that Trudeau’s stand against authoritarianism appears to not apply to actions within his own country.

Trudeau’s epic cluelessness and hypocrisy did not go unnoticed:
