Trudeau's trail of broken promises haunts his UN Security Council campaign
Trudeau has left a trail of broken promises in his wake, to the UN and domestic voters. One only has to look at his 2015 election platform - which promised that MPs "must be free represent their communities and hold the government to account" - and then contrast it to the vote this week that closed down Parliament until the fall. It sends the message that he is not entirely dependable.
If enough countries reach that
conclusion, Ireland's theme of empathy with small nations who have experienced
colonization, emigration and famine could prove decisive.
