Justin Trudeau is the new leader of the Liberal Party

Justin Trudeau elected latest leader of the Liberal party | Globalnews.ca

20 fun facts about Justin Trudeau | Globalnews.ca

It looks like new life have been breathed into the Liberal Party!

I must admit...although the election is way in the future, I am pretty damn excited. I always tend to gravitate towards the NDP, but it was mostly because of Layton...I really think Trudeau will add some excitement to the next election. Oh, how I wish we didn't have to wait another 2-3 years...

I'm just happy we don't have to vote every 1-2 years like we have been the past while.

The liberal party needed some young blood like him but hopefully he can live up to his words

i just can't care about politics anymore in this country - the corruption and BS in BC politics has just left me so uncaring about who leads our country, from what I've seen they're mostly there for their own good.

I hope this guy is different, i really do, as based on what the conservatives have been doing in the public eye, liberals will landslide the next election (and i'm a staunch right wing voter).

as previously said, some young blood, new ideas, and new approaches are definitely welcome!!!

He'll definitely be more charismatic than the other Liberal Leaders before him and didn't he say he wouldn't take the reins back in 2012-ish since he didn't like the direction of Liberal Party?

In the past, I have never questioned whether Justin Trudeau will become the Liberal Party leader or Prime Minister of Canada -- it was simply a matter of when.

Having said that, I am not sure if he is really ready to step up into this position. With the erosion of the Liberal Party at the federal level, the constant in-fighting between the various camps since Paul Martin stepped down, and the relegation into the 3rd rank party that they are now, it seems to me that people have grew sick of the federal Liberals. Of course, I understand that this is really a last last ditch effort of the Liberal Party to fight their way back into relevance, so there may not really be a choice for Justin Trudea to put it off. And with Jack Layton's passing, the NDP has really lost their most valuable asset, and I question whether they (the NDP) can carry their momentum of the past election into the next one. So there is really no better time for Justin Trudeau to win back some votes from both the NDP and the Conservatives, and give the Prime Ministership a shot.

From what I remember, a lot of his views and policies are quite left-leaning. I am not sure how comfortable I am with that...

Keep in mind Harper had about as much experience as him when he was made party leader. But cue the attacks on his short resume anyways.

Conservatives are as right wing as we get... I don't vote anymore as I just don't want any of them in, as I get old, I get disenfranchised with politicians

I signed up to vote for the leader. I miss my liberals...the bastion of middle ground, logical choices.

I voted for trudeau...I read a little about him. Seemed good enough to me. Here's why:

He's charming. I'm hoping a little of his dad's charm wore off on the kid. And I'm hoping like hell that it works to get people to voe for him and we can end the ndp/cons us style system we're birthing.

Yeah. I voted for trudeau because of his name. Here's hoping it works.

In the following YouTube video link this guy says he'd listen to Cotler (true Zionist) over his dad.
Real chilling comment from 3:44-4:07

Justin Trudeau show support to Irwin Cotler
Justin Trudeau, Liberal incumbent MP for the riding of Papineau, explain how Irwin Cotler influenced is political career.
YouTube comments
Quote:
Irwin is a Zionist and is part of the CPCCA and responsible for trying to silence criticism of Israel as anti-semitic, soon to be made a crime. He and his pro-Zionist group want to silence the universities, any press still talking and censor the internet, starting with GOOGLE and ISP's. Listening to Cotler is the same as listening to Israeli propagandists. Identical script. Trudeau here is bowing to AIPAC North
Quote:
Irwin Cotler, Israel's man in Canada. Seeks to deligitimize free speech in Canada. Trudeau here has learned to bow to Canadian Zionists, so that he can simply be a politician.
Highly respect Jewish professor Norman Finkelstein has a lengthy page on this website labeled methodical expose of lunatic irwin cotler.

Way to cite another anti-Israel/zionist person to further spread your frankly racist and hateful views as well as your political agenda. This stuff isn't even about Canadian politics. I bet you haven't even read into the criticism that Finkelstein has been slammed with.

Your story (garbage) is getting real old.

On topic however-the Liberals needed some fresh blood, Trudeau seems like the answer, it's all a matter on if he can deliver, and even a matter of what he can deliver. We all know with politics, things can be said, but never implemented.

Did you miss out on the lengthy, extensively cited, page on Finkelstein's page?
rhetorical question.

Is it too much to ask to just rationally talk about a political figure without the mentioning of anti-zionist comments especially ones from YouTube? No one really gives two shits about it.

Anyways, from just listening to the news briefly, he seems to bring a spark to the Liberals and hopefully he can deliver in the end like RacingMetro said.

Aaaaaaand, back on topic. Further thread derailments will be deleted. As always, certain threads are for certain topics. Anti-zionism is for other places.
