Although most remarks from the political representatives were relatively welcoming to Trudeau, several were not. Last to speak was MEP Mislav Kolakusic of Croatia where he blasted Trudeau with criticism for how he dealt with the protestors in Ottawa.
PM Trudeau, in recent months, under your quasi-liberal boot, Canada 🇨🇦 has become a symbol of civil rights violations. The methods we have witnessed may be liberal to you, but to many citizens around the🌎it seemed like a dictatorship of the worst kind. pic.twitter.com/FZuc6aDZ1I

Although Kolakusic was a part of the official line up that addressed Trudeau after his speech, he was not the only one that had strong words for the Canadian Prime Minister. MEP Christine Anderson of Germany also gave a passionate speech stating that Trudeau should not be invited to speak at the European Parliament.
🇨🇦🇬🇧|Yesterday, Canada’s Prime Minister @JustinTrudeau visited the #EU Parliament to give a speech. I took the opportunity to give him an appropriate “welcome” there. Short, concise and right hitting the bull’s eye! #ID pic.twitter.com/qpcQyGTixQ

Romanian MEP Christian Terhes took this to heart, refusing to show up for Trudeau’s speech making a post on his facebook explaining why.
“I refused to validate the imposition of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who gave a speech in front of the Plenary of the European Parliament on 23.03.2022, the reason why I was not in the hall when he spoke. You can’t come to teach Putin’s democracy lessons from the European Parliament, when you pass with horse hoofs over your own citizens who demand that their fundamental rights be respected. The difference between democracy and tyranny is not given by the geographical location of political leaders, but by the values that this promotes…”
Finally, EU representative from Munich, Bernhard Zimniok echoed the criticisms the other representatives were saying in condemning Trudeau’s tactics and stating he should not be able to speak at the event.
