Today, at the National, I listened to former Liberal MP Celina Caesar-Chavannes talking to Andrew Chang about her new book ‘Can You Hear Me Now’? And about her expletive-laced discussion with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and how she felt tokenized and marginalized in the last four years during her time in politics and why she decided to step down from her position. Men, how dumb and ungrateful can that be?

She said Prime Minister Trudeau heard her loud and clear over the phone in a fiery conversation the pair had in February 2019, according to the book. That she felt underused and undervalued as an MP and parliamentary secretary and despite reaching out to the Prime Minister’s Office and the PM himself on numerous occasions she seemingly got nowhere.

But wait a minute! In the same interview with Andrew Chang, she mentioned that and I quote “I was smart, I was strategic and I was able to help with policy and didn’t want to be a token in his government…” meaning Trudeau’s government. She went further to say that “in my role with the Prime Minister, the three international events that I attended were the state visit to Washington in which I only met Obama, I had no other meetings or anything else to do during that whole time, the opening of the African American museum in Washington again no other meetings and the inauguration of President Akufo-Addo in Ghana …”

The question is: is meeting President Obama irrelevant? Is the opening of the African American museum, not a privilege? How many MPs would have loved to just meet Obama or be at the inauguration of President Akufo-Addo of Ghana? Does Celina Caesar-Chavannes know what more could have come her way if she had shown a little bit of patience, gratefulness and appreciation of the privilege she got? Ungrateful people have often suffered in the past, but that trauma can create an idea in them that they are entitled to an awful lot from the world, and others. Little wonder though that some people can’t understand why they should have to be thankful for the good things that come their way, or for the things that other people do for them.

Honestly, Celina Caesar-Chavannes strikes me as someone who, no matter how well things seem to be going for her, and how many goals she meet, targets she achieve, or things she gets her hands on, will never be happy. By insolence comes nothing but strife, but with those who take advice is wisdom. The crux of the matter was when she said that the PM ranted at her and when he finished she blurted out: “Motherf----r, who the f--k do you think you are speaking to?”

But then who are you! Calling the Prime Minister the ‘M’ word is not only appalling, but it is also disheartening, shocking and ultimate disrespect to the Office of the Prime Minister. Celina Caesar-Chavannes is lucky and privileged to be living in a democracy otherwise her insult to the Prime Minister would have been punishable by up to a few years in prison and fines. She is unquestionably narcissistic as seen in the interview with Andrew Chang when she started with “I was smart, I was strategic and I was able to help with policy…” only dump people call themselves “smart “. On the other hand, see how our Prime Minister Trudeau answered her: he apologized on a couple of occasions for how poorly the conversation had gone. What a man! What a leader!! Who recognizes Canada's strength in its diversity and exemplified it to the core. Who is on top of things every day now at this time of uncertainties of COVID-19 pandemic, here “cometh the hour, cometh the man”.

Celina Caesar-Chavannes is a fallen angel and a disservice to her riding who has often fallen short when it comes to speaking out although she has suddenly realized her mistakes and said that she misses politics and might make a comeback. If she dares attempt to run again, I and my family will move to Whitby, Oshawa to campaign against her because we should not stand unappreciative people who take anything they have for granted.

"Where despair and hopelessness exist, those who have the ability to take action have the moral responsibility to take action to help those who live on the bare edge of survival.  And democracy is more than the creed of our country, it is the inborn hope of our humanity, an ideal we must carry, a trust we must bear and pass along. And even after all these years, we have a long way yet to travel, that is why we must all be involved ..."  - Baba J Adamu
