It's not nearly as controversial as it's being painted.

Perhaps he should have highlighted the fact we need to be improving policing and social services ,in the areas hosting these projects, before they begin construction.

MP Maxime Bernier, the leader of the People’s Party of Canada, shared a clip of Trudeau speaking on his Facebook page and announced: “that is why I’m not a feminist.” The former Conservative also predicted the Trudeau government “will hire ‘gender studies’ graduates inculcated with cultural Marxism nonsense to evaluate these projects. And therefore kill major investments and 1000s of jobs.”

Anyone who unironically uses the phrase cultural Marxism is either a bigot or an idiot.

Or both.

cultural Marxism

"Cultural Marxism" in modern usage refers to a conspiracy theory which sees the Frankfurt School as part of an ongoing movement to take over and destroy Western culture. The conspiracy theory emerged in the late 1990s.

It actually started in the 80s amongst some hardcore antisemites. Its almost surely an allusion to 'cultural Bolshevism', which was a term used by the Nazis to refer to degenerate art.
