Canada electing Trudeau caused the whale-watching tragedy, US evangelist claims

God caused the sinking of the a whale-watching vessel killing five Britons and an Australian off the coast of Tofino, BC, because Canada elected Justin Trudeau as the nation’s new Prime Minister, a popular US evangelist claims.

“It’s a sign of the times, the lord is saying something here,” Anita Fuentes, the Puerto Rican-American best known for her end times broadcast Open Your Eyes People and The Evangelistic Ministries of Anita Fuentes, said. “It’s because of the new prime minister now in office in Canada”

Fuentes, who claims to have given her life to Jesus Christ at 27 following a stint as a stripper, seems to be overlooking the detail that Trudeau and his Liberal government will not be sworn in until November 4.

“Justin Trudeau is a staunch supporter of many things that former Prime Minister Stephen Harper was not,” the pastor, who goes by the professional title Evangelist Anita Fuentes, claimed. “Harper sought to fear the lord by honouring the nation of Israel”

“And the lord honoured Harper and Canada by keeping the budget in check,” she added. “And keeping them safe overall from terrorist attacks and devastating accidents such as these”

“Since Trudeau has been in office, he has come in with an agenda to overturn everything Harper has done,” Fuentes said.

“One of the things the new Prime Minister has promised to do is to support unlimited abortions up to birth,” she added. “This is the innocent blood the lord has spoken about”

Fuentes claimed that the clue is in the name of the boat that capsized: Leviathan II.

Fuentes offered the biblical passage Isaiah 27:1 as proof: “In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.”

“The lord says, okay Canada, you wanted your new prime minister, a new prime minister that I honoured in that nation,” Fuentes said.

“The lord is showing himself,” Fuentes concluded. “This is the sign of the times.”

The 20-metre boat operated by local tour company Jamie’s Whaling Station was carrying 27 people when it capsized late on Sunday afternoon off the coast of Vancouver Island.

Members of the Ahousaht First Nation, who were the first to respond to the distress flare, managed to rescue 21 survivors of the tragedy.

Justin Trudeau led the Liberal Party of Canada to a comfortable majority at the federal election held on October 19 defeating Stephen Harper after nearly a decade of Conservative rule.
