I wish I could share your enthusiasm, Paul. I truly do. And despite the fact that I am quite pleased to see Harper turfed, I have little confidence in Justin ruling the roost. Frankly, he's obnoxiously arrogant and as dumb as a sack of hammers. Moreover, as in the case with Obama, people are going to learn that he's a lot more right-wing, neo-liberal and corporate than they bargained for. What can one expect from someone who openly expressed admiration for the basic Chinese economic model - the one that has little or no labour and environmental legislation and allows corporations to run amuck..

Yeah. This is the country that gave us Mayor Ford, the unapologetic crackhead, though we must admit we had our own in Marion Barry, but we don't have to claim him, since DC isn't even a state...

In the end the majority vote really wasn't for Trudeau, it was against Harper. Which is how our elections usually work, we're voting someone out, not someone in.

The fact that we now have 4 years under 'The Dauphin' just shows how sick of Harper and his burgeoning fascism much of the constituency were.

Hi Skob. I don't think he's as dumb as you think. He never varied from the campagin message which made him seem to be over-simplifing things, but when he was on his own during the debates he did well. I do grant you he might be. or might become, obnoxiously arrogant but I don't see him as that yet. So far as being right wing, I think I have an ideological difference with you on that. I'm a big free trader, I support the TPP and like to see trade growth with China. I do grant you that there needs to be more attention to labour standards and reining in of corporate power. Justin's first big test will be Paris on the environment and getting a deal with the Provinces. We'll see.

Not sure if those are good examples to throw against a Trudeau:

His dad snuffed out the FLQ with the War Measures Act suspending civil liberties during the October Crisis in 1970

And so far as de Gaulle goes:

"The newly appointed Canadian minister of justice, Pierre Trudeau—himself a francophone Montrealer—publicly wondered what the French reaction would have been if a Canadian Prime Minister shouted, "Brittany to the Bretons".[13] From then on, de Gaulle remained unimpressed by Trudeau, saying "Nous n'avons aucune concession, ni même aucune amabilité, à faire à M. Trudeau, qui est l'adversaire de la chose française au Canada." ("We have not one concession, nor even any courtesy, to extend to Mr Trudeau, who is the enemy of the French fact in Canada.")"

So the Canadians have given the Conservatives the boot, and American republicans are getting their knickers in a twist, "He's more Left-Wing than Obama !" Believe me, that ain't hard. I was hoping for a better showing from the New Democrats, but you can't have everything, and Republican apoplexy is always entertaining.
