Blaine Higgs, the daring Premier of New Brunswick, has proven that he’s not one to sit back and tolerate Trudeau’s outlandish woke policies. With his recent attack on the Prime Minister’s overreaching gender policy, Higgs has firmly asserted the rights of parents in guiding their children’s future.
Trudeau’s school gender drama has been nothing short of a headache for many provinces, especially those with conservative values. New Brunswick was not going to be a silent bystander in this ideological battle, and Blaine Higgs led the charge with gusto.
Susan Holt & Justin Trudeau don’t believe parents need be involved in such critical discussions as gender identity, even in children as young as 4.

In a tweet that went viral with over a million views, Higgs fearlessly called out Justin Trudeau, accusing him of not supporting the role of parents in their children’s lives. The tweet was a masterstroke of political bravado, appealing to a certain base of voters and exposing Trudeau’s questionable priorities.
The Policy 713
At the heart of the issue was Policy 713, the Higgs government’s contentious review that aimed to ensure an inclusive environment for LGBTQ2 children in schools. While the intentions may have seemed noble, the updated policy raised concerns about parental consent and involvement in their children’s education.
Higgs was resolute in his stand against the implementation of this policy in New Brunswick. Even within his party, some dissenters sided with Trudeau’s liberal agenda. Two PC cabinet ministers resigned in protest, and some party members plotted to force a leadership review.
Accusations of “autocratic leadership” were thrown at Higgs, but it was evident that these dissidents were merely grasping at straws to tarnish his reputation. Trudeau’s supporters within the Conservative party seemed eager to exploit any perceived weakness in their fight against Higgs.

The Plot to sack Higgs
A leadership review was proposed against Higgs, supported by the Liberal party for obvious reasons – they wanted to take down Trudeau’s newest arch-nemesis. But this attempt was nothing more than a false alarm, as it failed to gain enough support to move forward.
Disgruntled members of the New Brunswick Progressive Conservative Party found themselves powerless in their quest to challenge Higgs’s leadership. The party president confirmed that they had not submitted enough valid letters to trigger the review. It was a clear indication that Higgs had the backing of his party and wasn’t about to be swayed by internal turmoil.
BREAKING: PC Party president has told members that many letters requesting a leadership review were NOT VALID. Only 40 letters were from party members & only 15 were from riding presidents. "The leadership review process has not been triggered."

So, Blaine Higgs remains the dominant force in New Brunswick, and Trudeau’s woke policies will continue to face staunch opposition. The Premier’s unwavering determination to protect parental rights and ensure the best future for the province’s children has earned him the admiration of many.
In the end, Trudeau’s gender policy faced a resounding defeat in New Brunswick, thanks to Blaine Higgs’s tenacity and the overwhelming support he received from his party and the public. The Premier’s firm messaging against Trudeau’s overreach sent a powerful message: New Brunswick will not bow down to woke ideology.
As Higgs stands firm against the tides of liberal fervor, it serves as a reminder that New Brunswick is no more afraid to take on the giants of political correctness and protect the values that truly matter. Blaine Higgs has proven himself to be a champion of parental rights and a defender of traditional values, a much-needed breath of fresh air in a sea of politically correct pandemonium.
