The Two Trudeaus: In Photos
It’s been almost a year since Canada was swept into its second bout of Trudeaumania. Many like to compare the fanfare caused by the Liberal party’s young, charismatic leader, Justin Trudeau, when he won the Oct. 19, 2015 election to the hype created by his late father almost 50 years ago, when Pierre Elliott Trudeau also won a majority Liberal government.
But now, after a year with Pierre’s eldest son at the helm—with bills passed, a Cabinet shuffled, meetings conducted with foreign leaders, tempers lost in the House of Commons, and promises both kept and still waiting to be fulfilled—political observers and historians weigh in on both the uncanny similarities and stark differences between the two Trudeaus.
