Canada: Has Trudeau’s Liberal Government run its course? – By Yvonne Sam

Isms,  and Schisms reinforce that the Trudeau government has run its course?

Just-In’s answers only raises more questions. Punishment condign or asked to resign?

 –By Yvonne Sam

In 2015 when Justin Trudeau swept into power, not only did he revive the Liberal party but also became an instant global superstar.  Yes, he was not just simply Canada’s new Prime Minister, but young, tall and athletic or so gushed the New York Times. The progeny of a Canadian political giant, he toppled the Stephen Harper- led Conservatives by following his father’s playbook.

He ran as the youthful candidate, full of charisma, vigour, good looks and loads of new ideas. His was an exciting new face standing out in the dignified world of Canadian politics. Appealing to the 20 —somethings crowd, flexing their political muscles for the first time, he was the prime leader for the social-media generation, replacing a buttoned–down Harper whose government had simply run its course.    Continue reading

Imagine a West Wing episode come to life, and that’s basically Justin Trudeau. The winsome blew up the internet again this week via an old photo of him larking about for the cameras, balancing his entire weight on his wrists on the edge of a desk in trademark manly-but-sensitive fashion.
