I still think what Trudeau stands for, in terms of where he lands on the political spectrum, aligns the closest with my own views. Yes he didn't bring in electoral reform, spend a stupid amount of public money on a pipeline, and made some choices with SNC Lavelin that were objectionable in a perfect world. But he is also putting pressure on people to reduce their carbon emissions (which quite frankly is long overdue in Canada), promoting tolerance and diversity, investing record amounts of money into public transit and doing a good job at the negotiating table with people like Trump.

I also like that he doesn't give any particular group special treatment (asides from maybe Quebec, though that's an ongoing complicated issue in Canada). That seems to really infuriate the "old stock" Canadians the most.

Where is he investing the record amounts on public transit?

In the last election he pledged to spend $60 billion on infrastructure and I'm unable to find any evidence of it being done.

I'd like to know as that was the prime reason I voted for him.

Here's a graphic from a National Post report

Of course, a lot of what had been allocated to Ontario has been put on hold because the buffoon in Queen's Park wanted to tear up all the previous agreements and award projects to his cronies instead, but that's another story entirely.

Hi
I find he and his party have achieved very little so far
the party promised a lot and but delivered little

But he has made driving a vehicle more dangerous now
with drivers, who can now smoke stuff legally, then drive thinking they are still safe

maybe he should be a drama teacher again

cheers J

Do you have any evidence that there's been an increase in cases of driving while stoned since the change in the law? Indeed, do you have any evidence that there's been a change in stoner activity, either number of smokers or frequency of smoking, increase or decrease, since the change in the law? I would expect this change in law to have made no difference at all.

A photo from 2001 in which Trudeau is wearing brown face makeup has surfaced.

Apparently taken while he was teaching at some private school.

Party was Arabian themed.

The prime minister also confirmed that this was not the first time he had done something like this, saying that when he was in high school he dressed up at a talent show and sang Day O, a traditional Jamaican folk song, “with makeup on”.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...-image-emerges

That photo has yet to appear.

Wonder why all the political leaders suck? It's because most people would never subject themselves to these kinds of smear campaigns, most smart people just stay out of the limelight. Can you imagine having every stupid thing you did in your 20s as national news? It's just terrible.

The National Council of Canadian Muslims responded angrily to the report.

Executive director Mustafa Farooq said: "Seeing the prime minister in brownface/blackface is deeply saddening. The wearing of blackface/brownface is reprehensible, and hearkens back to a history of racism and an Orientalist mythology which is unacceptable.
