Justin Trudeau uses pandemic as an excuse to promote a “great reset” of the economy

Justin Trudeau brought up the idea of "great reset" during a live video captured by Global News. The "great reset" is the idea that the COVID-19 pandemic is a good opportunity to "reset" the economy and create a new system around "climate change", "green energies" and "wealth redistribution".

“Building back better means getting support to the most vulnerable while maintaining our momentum on reaching the 2030 agenda for sustainable development and the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals)” Justin Trudeau said.

“This pandemic has provided an opportunity for a reset – this is our chance to accelerate our pre-pandemic efforts to re-imagine economic systems that actually address global challenges like extreme poverty, inequality and climate change”.

According to Jamie Redman, the “great reset” is not an entirely new initiative:

“In fact, the World Economic Forum (WEF) has been promoting the concept for years, and back in November 2016, the WEF tweeted about eight predictions for the year 2030. The WEF 2030 prediction tweet describes a world where, “You’ll own nothing, and you’ll be happy” and the short clip says that everyone will rent everything they need.”

Most ideas included in the “great reset” initiatives revolve around new or improved worldwide legislative authorities to better regulate global issues like climate change or public health.

Debates around the idea of a “great reset’ have involved conspiracy-prone individuals. This is however the first time that the term is publicly voiced by a world leader such as Justin Trudeau.
