Will Justin Trudeau Catch Lighting in  Bottle in the Next Federal Election and Finish Ahead of Mulcair & Harper by Jamie Gilcig – April 6, 2013

Trudeau'sCFN – Will Canadians love Justin Trudeau as much as his good woman does?    That’s the question that many are asking as Mr. Trudeau is about to ascend to the top of his father’s party.

Justin is not his father though.   He’s bright; has had the advantage that comes from growing up with privilege and all that comes with being the son of Pierre Elliot Trudeau who led the Liberal Party of Canada to heights that seem distant memories.

With the leadership dance coming to a close the darts are flying like in one of those black and white action serials where you know the good guy will never get hit because it’s not in the script.

There are no kill shots ready for young Trudeau.  He’s exceeded expectations to date.   He beat Mr. Brazeau in the ring toughening up his pretty boy image.   He’s criss crossed the country creating a pool of awareness and reaction that not only his party, but the opposition is measuring.

Now will come to the sprint to the next Federal election and Mr. Trudeau is a great position.   He can actually lose and even finish third without losing too much tarnish to his game.  His youth and the utter mess that the Liberals ended up with after the last election all but guarantee to the Grits more seats than the last outcome; especially if Robocop antics are foiled.

There is cause for concern in the Harper camp because there’s a very real chance that Mr. Trudeau can catch lighting in a bottle as easily as he can finish 2nd or 3rd.

This next election comes down to one of two paradigms.     Two Quebec candidates splitting whatever centre/left Francophone votes there are with Mr. Harper running up the middle for a Touchdown, again, or Mr. Trudeau gaining power as Canada rejects the two angry grumpy old guys in Mr. Harper and Mr. Mulcair.   There is no appetite for the NDP; no dying popular leader besting it out in debates.  As talented as Mr. Mulcair is he is no match for either Harper or Trudeau in this next dance.

Women, young people, the fringes, and the largest bloc; people that don’t vote are the grist for Mr. Trudeau’s mill.  If he has one advantage over Mr. Harper is that he’s embraced Social Media much stronger and far more accessible than Stephen Harper ever has been or Thomas Mulcair has been since taking over the NDP.

The Leadership debates surely will be an attempt by Mulcair & Harper to slay Mr. Trudeau as much as Patrick Brazeau attempted to.   Will Justin be able to jab back and survive the onslaught?

Politics is always an education; one that never ends.   It’s impossible to find a single candidate that reflects all of someone’s major issues, but it should be interesting to see Mr. Trudeau’s high gear when he hits it….

What do you think Canada?   Will Justin Trudeau be Lighting in Bottle come Election time?  You can post your comments below.

If he becomes liberal leader, his training, resources and support will change and probably in time before the election, we could see what the party stands for, and how controlling he would need to be.

Its a little late now but I think justin should have waited another four years. The pressure for him to run must have been insurmountable. If the infighting between the conservatives continue ? If the robocall court decision reveals that the party was involved and higher ups in the PMO, then he has a good chance. In french we call that l’usure du pouvoir, Mr Harper will have alot to defend For example, the 150 billion added to our debt and the fact that we will be in a deficit for another 2 years. BUt Mr Harper is not fool,… Read more »

JT, if he’s chosen, may not need lightning in a bottle. With their contempt for democracy, economic mismanagement, environmental recklessness, and antisocial attitudes, the Harper neocons are doing a great job of digging a pit for themselves. Come 2015, look for the possibility of a Conservative meltdown of post-Mulroney proportions.

JT will be ordained all the fuss otherwise is just smoke and mirrors . But good for the liberals ,it will eventually be their downfall . This will be their 4 or 5 leader in 8 years ,grasping at straws for sure with JT but he’s the “shiny pony ” right ?That shine wears off quickly when you have to deal in the playground (Parliament). Watch Mulclair take that shining off him because he in the big boys club and its not that fun in that sand box! The best hope they had was Garneu ,well educated ,well experienced and… Read more »

Yup, you’re absolutely right Tremblay. Justine IS .. THE boy, oops — i mean “the MAN…” He’s “the man” alright— The man that brazenly told — ALL — Canadians that this country would be much better off if more French people were running it. He also — referring to the french — said… “this country belongs to us.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UDNKcLea8Cw&hd=1 Doesn’t leave much doubt which side of the “tracks” he is on. He’s “the man” alright — the man that, just like his father, will continue to give away more of this country’s power base to who? Oh come on now,… Read more »

Oddly enough, i am NOT a typical PC voter. I am more liberal minded in my political views. HOWEVER, i can no longer bring myself to vote for a party that continues at hand over more and more power to the French. And, yes, i am very aware what the conservatives are doing and the fact that the Conservatives are not reversing this “Frenchification” of Canada BUT, they are the only ones pushing back in their own little ways. Ways that irk the French and put a smile on my face for a change. Besides, a party (like the Bloc)… Read more »

To you kilroy, its always a question of division and english vs french. Why don’t you stop making videos and I don’t know broaden your horizons ? Go for a walk, read a book ? Go out and talk to girls instead of being in front of a computer screen. Maybe meet a nice french girl ?

Richard you didn’t answer me…Please explain “the blind vote from the west. Seems to me they go to the polls with eyes wide open….

@Richard tremblay RE: April 8, 2013 at 2:10 pm POST No, it’s actually all about what is right and what is fair Tremblay. Of course, i would NOT expect YOU (as open minded as you claim to be, while you keep telling everyone that you are) to know anything about fairness and what is right.) No one that believes a law like bill 101 is just (for any reasons) could have a sense of what is right and what is fair inside of them. No, my rage is for the Anglo’s that still live in their own country but happen… Read more »
