Justin Trudeau may not last long as Liberal leader, political scientist says

Prospects of a Liberal victory are wilting fast in this scorching summer leading up to the fall federal election.

With federal Liberals languishing behind Conservatives and New Democrats in surveys, it may be a fair question to ask what’s next for party leader Justin Trudeau.

The answer depends on where Liberals find themselves after the ballots are counted, according to Peter Prontzos, an instructor at Langara’s department of history, Latin and political science.

    I see Justin Trudeau and Elizabeth May neck and neck for last place in October.

    • As a Yank I know nothing about Canadian politics. But every time I have heard Trudeau talk speak he sounds like an incompetent PC hack.

    I just finished reading his autobiography, Common Ground. My take is that he is a wealthy kid who grew up under the shadow of a very successful intellectual father and is having trouble adjusting.

    Justin is trying to “find himself.” His marks at Brebeuf College were poor. He was unable to get into law school so he choose education at McGill. He dropped out in the second year (which is the year that students are required to do their practice teaching). He claims he was unmotivated.

    He went to UBC and then taught as a substitute teacher. After that he got a full time job in a private school. He lasted a few years but resigned because he had problems with the parents and administration. He encouraged a student to write an article in the student newspaper pointing out the hypocrisy of having to wear school uniforms, hence his conflict with the admin. Problems with parents revolved around telling them “the truth” about their kids.

    He tried engineering school and failed. But, he did do a great job as a snowboard instructor and learned all sorts of “life lessons” from this and from travelling around the world as a backpacker on daddy’s dime.

    His dad’s old wing man, Jacques Hebert, got him a position in Kitamavik where he learned more “life lessons.”

    He needs to continue to “find himself” as a wealthy trust fund boy is want to do, but hopefully not as the PM of Canada.

    Trudeau is not going anywhere for now.
    He will continue to fail upwards.
