Trudeau’s PMO enthusiastic, but swamped: ‘It’s not a hill, it’s a mountain they’re about to climb’

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has a long list of platform promises to see through over the next four years and he’s leading an activist government.

'They’ve come off an historic election win, so it’s a very exhilarating time, especially for those who are serving for the first time in such a senior capacity in government. At the same time, it’s also enormously daunting. It’s not a hill, it’s a mountain that they’re about to climb in terms of the workload and in terms of the pressure they’ll be faced with,' says Earnscliffe Strategy Group's Charles Bird.
