Canada surprised everybody by voting a liberal government and electing young Justin Trudeau as their Prime Minister. Some said his “coming was predicted”! See article from AP below.
However Justin success is attributed more likely to his liberal views and his demographic of voters mainly immigrants. Harper, Trudeau’s opponent, has recently run an almost “xenophobic” campaign including an anti-immigrant and anti-muslim agenda but Canada stood tall and said “no” to such ideas. The majority of the Canadians have spoken. They are for peace and are against racism. Today, Canada has taken a new foothold in this world of hate. The world should stand and learn about this approach. While the US right wing are promoting more and more hate, Canada is promoting love, compassion and peace. Maybe we should learn more from Canada. Well done Canada!
Justin Trudeau has fulfilled the great expectations he was born into, following in the footsteps of his storied father to become Canada’s next prime minister.
Now, he has the chance to restore the late Pierre Trudeau’s Liberal legacy, which has been under siege during 10 years of Conservative rule under Stephen Harper.
Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party won a resounding victory in Monday’s election, gaining an outright parliamentary majority.
More than 40 years ago, no less than the most powerful man on the planet predicted the younger Trudeau’s destiny.
“Tonight we’ll dispense with the formalities. I’d like to toast the future prime minister of Canada: to Justin Pierre Trudeau,” Richard Nixon said during a state dinner in Ottawa hosted by Pierre Trudeau in 1972. (AP)
