Trudeau shouldn’t fly too close to the camera lights

In my view, there is no politician alive who is as adept at visuals. Words equal information, but pictures equal power, and Justin Trudeau, grinning out at us on the cover of GQ, knows that better than anyone. But.

Warren Kinsella says Justin Trudeau's 2012 winning fundraiser boxing match against Sen. Patrick Brazeau, left, transformed him from a relatively inoffensive backbencher, representing the third party in a remote perch in the House of Commons—and it made him into a prime minister. The 2015 general election was a mere formality, after that.
