Media’s excited cheerleading about Trudeau will fade soon enough

The election of Justin Trudeau in 2015 is reminiscent of the U.S. election of Barack Obama in 2008.

Re: Hopefully new PM can maintain momentum, Opinion, Nov. 10.

The election of Justin Trudeau in 2015 is reminiscent of the U.S. election of Barack Obama in 2008. It has taken the swooning left-wing media in the U.S.A. seven years for some of them to realize that he is in way over his head. His presidency is beginning to look like a disaster. Canadians should hope the same type of excited liberal cheerleading media outlets in Canada will figure out Trudeau a whole lot faster than seven years.

To the Editor,

The vise is gone and the muzzles are off Canadian scientists. Real compassion for 25,000 Syrians coming to Canada. For the first time in seven years, Canada’s prime minister has met with premiers to actually listen to their problems. Real discussions looking for actual solutions to global warming and our environment after our black eye internationally on this issue.

These are admirable values and PM Justin Trudeau can restore Canada’s respect on the international scene.

Conservative critics must resort to personal attacks on Trudeau’s good looks, hugs and selfies. It must look strange to see a leader full of love, compassion and sincere warmth for human beings who is not afraid to show it, either.
