Will the people regain power when the crisis is over?

Trump coronavirus press conferenceA Christian educator and pro-family activist in Canada says President Donald Trump will react differently than other world leaders when the COVID-19 crisis is over.

Since mid-March, more than three million Canadians have applied for jobless benefits and emergency income aid with the federal government -- a staggering figure for a country of just 38 million people. And thanks to the policies imposed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government, much of the Canadian population is huddling in homes out of fear of a disease that has only affected less than 18,000 and killed 381 Canadians as of Tuesday.

Dr. Charles McVety, president of Canada Christian College, believes the reaction to COVID-19 is way overblown.

"In a matter of three weeks, the entire West has come under totalitarian rule, where our elections are suspended, where our rights have been stripped away, when most of us are locked in our own homes under house arrest," Dr. McVety observes. "And they have now seized this power of spending trillions of dollars and giving it all out and making us all dependent upon government."

And the college president begs the question -- Once this is over, will the government cede power back to the people?

"That's where you're going to find where the rubber meets the road. I believe that Donald Trump will give the power back to the people," he tells OneNewsNow. "I believe that Trudeau will not. He will try to maintain that totalitarian rule over our country, and I believe in Europe the same thing is happening."

Dr. McVety believes globalists are using the pandemic as a way to try to stamp down on the populist movement in the West.
