Rewind to 2022 when Trudeau’s former best friend, Bill Morneau, went all guns blazing against him. It was a sight to behold, folks! Morneau, the former finance minister, held nothing back as he criticized the Liberal government’s economic policies.
He felt like too much energy was spent on redistribution and not enough on increasing collective prosperity. Ouch! That must’ve stung for Trudeau.
Now, fast forward to the present, and it looks like the drama and tension in Canada’s halls of power are back with a vengeance. Four Liberal cabinet ministers have decided to abandon ship, leaving Trudeau’s leadership looking like a sinking boat in desperate need of life jackets. It’s a tough call to make, but when you see the ship going down, it’s best to jump before you sink.
The Liberal Bandwagon weakens
Take, for example, Minister Carolyn Bennett, who announced that she won’t seek re-election. She must’ve had enough of being part of the Trudeau government’s controversial policies. From supporting the divisive “safe supply” drug policies to pushing the government’s assisted suicide agenda, Bennett has had her fair share of criticism.
And let’s not forget that offensive text message she sent to former Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould. Not a good look, Carolyn.
But wait, there’s more! Transport Minister Omar Alghabra also decided to abandon ship and announced his decision on Twitter. Even seven ministers in total are leaving the cabinet, making it the largest cabinet shuffle since the 2021 federal election. Ouch, Trudeau! That must’ve hurt. Losing not one, not two, but seven ministers is a clear sign that the Liberal ship is taking on water, and fast.
More than eight ministers have been reshuffled in JT’s cabinet and they all likely take the Morneau road against Justin Trudeau. To be honest, leaving early might be a blessing for these ministers. The Liberal party is already on its last legs in Ottawa.

JT’s Popularity Crisis
The once enthusiastic supporters are jumping ship faster than you can say “Trudeau’s popularity crisis.” The higher cost of living is squeezing pocketbooks, and Canadians are losing faith in the Liberal leadership.
According to a poll from the Angus Reid Institute, 41 percent of those struggling financially might vote for another party if an election were held today. That’s a huge chunk of voters considering an alternative.
And Trudeau’s days? Well, they seem numbered. The clock is ticking, and it won’t be long before these ministers open a full-frontal attack against JT and his policies. The mutiny is real, folks, and Trudeau better brace himself for the storm that’s brewing within his party.

The political mutiny is here, and it’s not going away anytime soon. Trudeau’s leadership is under fire, and if he doesn’t act fast, his political ship might sink faster than he can say, “I’m sorry.” Let’s hope he has some real solutions up his sleeve because flashy smiles won’t save him now. The drama is real, and the curtains are closing on Trudeau’s political show.
