The clip dates back to Trudeau's initial campaign against then-Prime Minister Stephen Harper, a conservative MP who led Canada from 2006-2015. The Sun News clip shows Trudeau addressing a smallish group at a sort of town hall-style event in which he was asked which country he admired most.
The logical answer would have been "Canada" but it wasn't. It was China. And why? Because China's leaders are Communist authoritarians.

"There's a level of admiration I actually have for China, um, because their basic dictatorship is allowing them to actually turn their economy around on a dime and say 'we need to go greenest fastest, we need to start investing in solar," he told the crowd.
He then tried to play off his lust for authoritarianism on his then-opponent, Harper.
"There is a flexibility that, I know Stephen Harper must dream about, of having a dictatorship that he can do whatever he wanted, that I find quite interesting" Trudeau added.
Again Stephen Harper did not profess his love for China's dictatorship, Justin Trudeau did, his sleight of hand and wordplay notwithstanding.
And we have seen his lust for tyranny in his recent words and actions involving the Freedom Convoy truckers.
For example, in recent days, Trudeau also admitted that the only protests he approves of are those he agrees with, meaning, those that empower him and his authoritarian "Liberal" Party.
In remarks regarding the Freedom Convoy, he said: "I have attended protests and rallies in the past. When I agreed with the goals, when I supported the people expressing their concerns and their issues, Black Lives Matter is an excellent example of that."

"But I have also chosen to not go anywhere near protests that have expressed hateful rhetoric, violence toward fellow citizens. And a disrespect, not just of science, but of the frontline health workers and quite frankly, the 90 percent of truckers who have been doing the right thing to keep Canadians safe, to put food on our tables. Canadians know where I stand. This is a moment for responsible leaders to think carefully about where they stand and who they stand with," he added.
Got it? Black Lives Matter wokeism helps him politically so he "agrees" with it. Freedom Convoy protests are a pushback on his ridiculous vaccine mandate, so those can't be allowed.
He has also blasted the convoy as being composed of a "small fringe minority" of people who hold "unacceptable views."
"What we are hearing from some people associated with this convoy is completely unacceptable," he added at the time.
Those comments drew mocking and derision from others, including liberals.
"It would appear that the so-called ‘fringe minority’ is actually the government," billionaire SpaceX founder Elon Musk tweeted.
"If the government had the mandate of the people, there would be a significant counter-protest. There is not, therefore they do not," Musk said in a follow-up tweet.
