on Justin Trudeau

I’ll be supporting Trudeau in the upcoming election, voting for the Liberal candidate in my riding. For me Trudeau’s by far the best of the candidates for that job.

I like most of what Trudeau has said and done. He’s the anti-Trump.

The CBC Front Burner podcast has the best overview I’ve heard of Trudeau as Prime Minister, so far. They interview Aaron Wherry, author of PROMISE AND PERIL: JUSTIN TRUDEAU IN POWER (Aug 2019).

Justin Trudeau’s record versus rhetoric

Some of his biggest problems were self-inflicted. For example:

For me Trudeau’s most damaging scandal was attempting to influence Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould concerning an ongoing prosecution of SNC-Lavalin.  Rather than trying to save jobs at a criminal company, he should have taken the high road.

That said, SNL-Lavalin is not a deal breaker for me. Bombardier is an even worse corrupt Quebec corporation. 

Worse for me, too, is Trudeau’s support of the Harper-negotiated arms deal with Saudi Arabia. He should have cancelled that deal.
