Justin Trudeau’s Canada: Groping for Direction


It has been a curious spring of discontent for Canadian Liberals and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The Liberals have fallen behind in the polls, and Trudeau is no longer a Teflon telegenic global political rock star. Some of the problems reflect the differences between the plethora of promises made and the paucity of promises kept. Still, Liberals don't face election until October 2019, and the odds are greater that it is a mid-mandate malaise than a harbinger that Trudeau will be a one-term prime minister.
