It won’t be a coronation; but pretty darn close. Some names will toss their hats into the ring and there will be a race which I’m sure Grit organizers will hope to whip up party support, but will Mr. Trudeau be the lighting bolt that turns the party around?
Right now the Harper government is jabbing at NDP leader Thomas Mulcair and it’s been an interesting play. The Conservative play in the last election of all but giving up on Quebec to give the NDP an up on the Liberals was a very strong tactic.
Essentially it most likely will give him one more mandate because it looks like short of a uniting of the centre Mr. Harper will be able to divide and conquer the Red & Orange.
And that’s where Justin Trudeau comes in. He has the potential to rebound the Grits to the point where a uniting of the two parties is possible.
He will win female voters across Canada over Mr. Harper and Mr. Mulcair. He’ll win over more young voters. Essentially we will have two grumpy old men in the next Federal election against a younger man with a pedigree and right hook that appeals to the masses.
Everything is in Trudeau’s favor at this point. With the Liberals drifting at the back of the pack expectations are minimal. Now we really see if he has more Pierre than Maggie in his drawers.
