Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, pictured Dec. 14, 2021, arriving for the Liberals' national caucus meeting in the West Block. If it comes down to the Liberals choosing between an increasingly culturally conservative Quebec and a progressively more diverse and seat-rich Ontario, both the Liberals and Quebec know what the choice will be. It is better to rip off a Band-Aid sooner rather than later, writes Geoff Russ. The Hill Times photograph by Andrew Meade

It is difficult imagining anybody but Chrystia Freeland having enough sway to oust Justin Trudeau. She may even have the patience and trust in Trudeau to wait until he finally leaves office before attempting to replace him, writes Geoff Russ. The Hill Times photograph by Andrew Meade

Conservative Party Leader Erin O’Toole, pictured on the Hill on Dec. 6, 2021. O’Toole steered clear of law and order in the last election, despite the legitimate need to address the growing tendency of people to shoot, shank, or beat each other, writes Geoff Russ.

Green Party of Canada former leader Elizabeth May, pictured at the party’s leadership convention in Ottawa on Oct. 3, 2020. Paradoxically, the party might not have any seats at all without May’s iron grip on her riding of Saanich-Gulf Islands. The power of personality trumps all in politics and that can go either way, writes Geoff Russ. The Hill Times photograph by Andrew Meade
