I don't know much about him, really. Young, handsome, dashing and debonair, he seems quite the ladies man. 

He's a placard where the liberal can put their stuff, two dimensional shallow type of politician...

Trudeau takes a tumble as his election campaign stumbles :lol:

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is stumbling through the final hours of his re-election campaign — literally. In a video captured Saturday in Milton, Ontario, a waving Trudeau steps off a bright red Liberal Party campaign bus and strides jauntily along a sidewalk — directly into a knee-high urn filled with dirt. The startled prime minister tumbles into the arms of a campaign aide as the planter crashes to the ground, spilling soil. “Look what we did!” gasps a spectator as Trudeau rights himself and walks — much more sedately this time – into a Team Trudeau rally.

Not looking good for the Blackface Prime Minister 

Canada heads to polls as Justin Trudeau's power hangs in the balance

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau faced the threat of being knocked from power after one term as the nation held parliamentary elections on Monday. The 47-year-old Trudeau channeled the star power of his father, the liberal icon and late Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, when he won in 2015 but a combination of scandal and high expectations have damaged his prospects. Polls indicate Trudeau's Liberal Party could lose to the rival Conservatives, or perhaps win but still fail to get a majority of seats in Parliament and have to rely on an opposition party to remain in power. Not in 84 years has a first-term Canadian prime minister with a parliamentary majority lost a bid for re-election.

tooclosetoocall made their final projection, it's literally too close to call, it will probably be a minoritary parlement, either Conservative or Liberal, which are neck to neck in the polls.

For more details:

Edit: looking their numbers more closely, the balance of power could be in the hands of NDP and Bloc together... We may be back in elections much sooner than 4 years.

as this "happened in the past" and people "should be excused for what they did 20 years ago".

It certainly worked for the two sleazebags in Virginia.  The double standards have been obvious for any years.  This is why the Left will eventually be completely ignored by the rest of the citizens.  No one likes to be told what to do by a hypocrite and they certainly will bridle at a hypocrite telling them what they MUST do.

Apparently, Justin Trudeau has no shame. If Canada's prime minister had even a sense, let alone a mature understanding of the word, he would have resigned after his past racist acts were revealed.

I hadn't paid attention to this scandal because I have outrage burnout just now.  When I saw the image from that link it occurred to me that down here he might just as easily been busted for groping the sweet young thing as well as being a RAY-SUS.  A TWOFER!  If it costs him his job, I'll be quite surprised.

Obama endorses Justin Trudeau days before Canadian election

Former President Obama endorsed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Twitter Wednesday afternoon, just days before Canadians go to the polls on Monday. Photos of Trudeau from years ago dressed in blackface and brown-face were released last month, casting a shadow over his campaign in the tight race. "I was proud to work with Justin Trudeau as President," wrote Mr. Obama in a tweet. "He's a hard-working, effective leader who takes on big issues like climate change. The world needs his progressive leadership now, and I hope our neighbors to the north support him for another term."

Well, that's it then.  Poor guy.  Obama's endorsement was the kiss of death in the last election :tu:

Justin "Black Face" Trudeau wins reelection but loses majority

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau won a second term in Canada’s national elections Monday, losing the majority but delivering unexpectedly strong results despite having been weakened by a series of scandals that tarnished his image as a liberal icon. Trudeau’s Liberal party took the most seats in Parliament, giving it the best chance to form a government. However, falling short of a majority meant the Liberals would have to rely on an opposition party to pass legislation.

At least Maxime Bernier and his People's Party are out, hopefully dead and buried. I could never stand that guy.

Congratulations to Jody Wilson-Raybould who kept her seat as an independent. Hopefully for her, Trudeau will be our by the next elections and she will be back with the Liberals. For international readers who don't know her, she was the minister of Justice when the SLC Lavalin (a Québec engineer firm) scandal came through. Trudeau pressured her to give the entreprise a free pass, she refuse on moral grounds. He demoted from her minister status and she left the party in protest, along with another MP. Only Mrs Wilson-Raybould manage to keep her seat, though.

The Greens had high expectations, hoping to move ahead of the NDP as the third party. They only got 3 MPs in the end. It's a good thing they now have one out of British Columbia, it will give them a broader perspective of the challenge outside of the Western most province. Now, will Mrs May stay as the head of the party? She surely didn't deliver to the expectations, but their number of MPs increase slowly as she kept her two seats and add another one.

For the NDP, the voting base crumbled, either not inspired enough by the new chief or fearing Conservatives so much they voted Liberals instead. Maybe a few more weeks of campaign would have made the difference, but it wasn't to be. They are now far from Layton's 103 MPs, closer to their historic average. Would they have done better if they have kept Mulcair? Who knows. Will Singh be replaced for the next elections? Will see how things go with the next session. Anyway, their MPs are much more  concentrated into a few region than they use to be.

The Bloc Québécois did much better than expected, harvesting votes from Liberals, Conservatives and NDP alike. Neither Trudeau, Sheer or Singh were inspiring enough, so French boomers went back to their first love. It helped that the new chief was a former provincial minister and had the experience and skill to deliver his policies item. It also help that the Martine Ouellet drama is over, things were spiraling down fast back then. I think Mr Blanchet is safe in his seat for a few years to go. 

On the Conservatives side, thing didn't go as expected. They won the popular vote, but it didn't translate into higher number of MPs, as it was too concentrated into a few regions. They still improved their number, moving from 99 MPs in last election to 121 this time. Close to the 124 MPs which made Harper's first gouvernement back in the days, but not enough this time to form the government. On the bright side, they gained seats in two Atlantic provinces, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, which will give a better voice to the issues of the region. Will Sheer stay? The party still got a decent number of MPs, although they missed their chance to power, which my be the end of Mr Sheer.

The winner of the night would be Trudeau who manage to hang to power narrowly. The polls were predicting a weak minority with the need to reach to both NDP and Bloc to have anything done. The real numbers give Liberals the luxury to tailor their policies to please either Conservative, NDP or Bloc and reach a majority of MPs à la carte. Mr Harper was a master at these kind of deals. Not the best situation for Mr Trudeau but more workable that it could have been. It's a shame they don't have seats in all provinces, Alberta and Saskatchewan don't have a voice among Liberal MPs. Now the big question, will Trudeau stay as the head of the party for the next elections or will he resign before to give a new leadership and a second wind to the Liberals?
