Dangers ahead for Trudeau, if not all his fault
By Susan Riley Jun. 3, 2019
Justin Trudeau has two personality traits that have deeply harmed his prospects and are no one’s fault but his own. The first is a stubborn refusal to acknowledge a mistake. The second is that he appears to love the sound of his own voice, particularly before crowds of rapt young people, or in town halls. Eventually, people notice the flowery promises aren’t always matched by action.
