Justin Trudeau

Eldest son (now reaching his 40s) of Pierre Trudeau, current Liberal MP for Montreal riding of Papineau, which happens to be the smallest federal riding in the country, with the lowest average family income. He has his father’s charisma and oratorical skills, along with some of his political instincts and courage. But it isn’t yet clear that he inherited his father’s intelligence. So far he has shown a knack for supporting good causes and crash-and-burn political figures. But if the federal Liberal party has a future, Justin Trudeau is going to be at its centre. For better or worse.
