Poilievre slammed "Trudeau's media" for attacking him and opting to discredit his claims by branding them conspiratorial in nature instead of producing a counterargument.
"Trudeau's media are desperate to stop his continued downfall," Poilievre said via X on Sunday, explaining that the CP "wrote a hit piece on me because I dared criticize the World Economic Forum—a group of multinational CEOs and powerful politicians that push their interests."
"I work for our people in this country," he added, "and will bring home our democracy—without apology."
Fellow conservative Aaron Gunn pointed out that the piece was "especially interesting because the Canadian Press didn't even try to feign objectivity."
He suggested it was a "full blown, propaganda hit piece with the objective of trying to convince older Canadians without access to additional media sources that Poilievre (who has been an MP for almost 20 years) was some sort of extremist."
"This is also why bill C-11 (which is now law) is so dangerous as this is the exact kind of garbage they want to force every Canadian to read (while hiding everything else)," Gunn added. "Control what you think by controlling what you see."
In the piece, Poilievre is accused of using "ramped-up rhetoric around debunked claims that the World Economic Forum is attempting to impose its agenda on sovereign governments." The authors then suggest that the Conservative Party and its supporters are allowing conspiracy theories to be brought from the fringes into the mainstream.
To prove their point, they cited a snippet of a fundraising email sent out by Poilievre's team in which he said, "It's far past time we rejected the globalist Davos elites and bring home the common sense of the common people."
Also cited was a poll asking supporters whether they thought Trudeau should stand with the Canadian people, or the WEF.
Poilievre has long been critical of the prospect of global governance, however his claims have not strayed into the realm of conspiracy, as the Canadian Press would have Canadians believe.
