About the Author
Justin Trudeau is the twice-elected Member of Parliament for Papineau and Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada. As a Parliamentarian, he has been Liberal Party Critic for Youth, Post-Secondary Education, Amateur Sport, Multiculturalism, Citizenship and Immigration, and sat on the House of Commons committees on the Environment and Sustainable Development, and Citizenship and Immigration. Prior to his role as an elected official, Trudeau was a teacher in British Columbia and an advocate for the environment and for youth, including four years as chair of Katimavik, Canada’s national youth service program. Trudeau was born on December 25, 1971, the eldest son of the late former Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau and Margaret Sinclair Trudeau Kemper. He is married to Sophie Gregoire, and their third child, Hadrien, joined their other two children, Xavier and Ella Grace, in February 2014.

Who found the time and interest to develop Justin Trudeau's character, both intellectually, but also develop his athletic abilities as an outdoorsman.
I can recommend this book without reservation.
The average annual economic growth rates under Canadian Prime Ministers since 1968 are as follows:
Pierre Trudeau (LIBERAL), 1968-1979: +4.28 per cent (BEST);
Pierre Trudeau (LIBERAL), 1980-1984: +2.16 per cent;
Brian Mulroney (CONSERVATIVE), 1984-1993: +2.51 per cent;
Jean Chretien (LIBERAL), 1993-2003: +3.32 per cent;
Paul Martin (LIBERAL), 2003-2006: +2.71 per cent;
Stephen Harper (CONSERVATIVE), 2006-present: +1.77 per cent (WORST).
So historically the Liberals have a track record of strong leadership, from Pierre Trudeau, to Jean Chretien, to Paul Martin. These visionary leaders have helped build a Canada with both a solid economy and a healthy environment.
In comparison with these leaders, Stephen Harper has been pitiful, particularly in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. During each of these years the Canadian economy has under-performed the American economy, because while Barack Obama focused on the future and encouraged Silicon Valley, Stephen Harper focused on the past, and put all of Canada's eggs in the dirty Tar Sands basket, with devastating consequences, unbalancing the Canadian dollar, our economy, our environment, and our country.
Under the Harper Conservatives, Canada has been losing ground economically not just against the United States, but against the world.Read more ›
