Speaking in New Brunswick on Monday, Trudeau congratulated the longtime Carleton MP for his victory, but said that his party would continue to call out "questionable, reckless economic ideas."
"We all need to work together. Now is not the time for politicians to exploit fears and to pit people one against the other. As you all know, the Conservative Party picked a new leader over the weekend. I want to congratulate Mr. Poilievre on becoming the leader of His Majesty’s Loyal Opposition," said Trudeau. "We've been making every effort to work with all Parliamentarians, and we will continue to do so."
"This doesn't mean that we're not going to be calling out highly questionable, reckless economic ideas. What Canadians need is responsible leadership. Buzzwords, dog whistles and careless attacks don’t add up to a plan for Canadians. Attacking the institutions that make our society fair, safe and free is not responsible leadership. Telling people they can opt out of inflation by investing their savings in volatile cryptocurrencies is not responsible leadership."
Trudeau said that anyone who followed Poilievre's advice would have seen their "life savings destroyed."
"Fighting against vaccines that saved millions of lives, that's not responsible leadership. Opposing the support and investments that have helped save jobs, businesses, and families during the pandemic, that's not responsible leadership," Trudeau continued.
