There’s a lot of talk around Canada about the future of Michael Ignatieff. There are a lot of potential replacements in Liberal land, and one of the most talked about is Justin Trudeau.
Mr. Trudeau has been very patient while working hard to raise his profile and not simply trade on his name. It’s a very ….conservative approach to politics, and one I’m not 100% sure his father would’ve followed.
It looks like we’re not going to have an election anytime soon. Mr. Ignatieff is rallying his forces and it should be an interesting spring as Stephen Harper tries to maneuver into a majority government.
Legacies are funny things, creating them, living up to them, and politics is a blood sport, and not for the squeamish. One wrong move and your name is Kim Campbell.
L I N K Lawrence Martin focuses on youth in the link to your left and feels that Justin Trudeau is the anti-dote to the apathy shown by youth regarding politics in Canada. Maybe he’s right? I’m not so sure.
“Justin Trudeau, 38, is the politician who can change things. He is young, articulate in both languages, dashing, magnetic. Wherever he goes he draws a crowd. Charisma is a rare political gift. About one in 1,000 have it. He has it.
Trudeau initially had the reputation of being a bit flaky. But he hasn’t come across that way since arriving in Ottawa. He’s shown a sense of discipline and a willingness to be patient and learn. At the same time he has a sense of humour while coming across as an independent thinker.”
I think Canadians are simply waiting for a leader to captivate them, and capture their attention and support. With the current conditions in Canada we are all far too busy to give much energy or attention to a Candidate unless they are the real deal.
Do you think Justin Trudeau is the real deal? Vote in our poll. And feel free to post your comments.
