Analysis: Trudeau suits up, but doesn’t quite look the part

Justin Trudeau showed up with pants on, but his performance in Thursday’s leaders’ debate still wasn’t enough to erase the image Conservatives have skillfully created that he’s not ready to replace Stephen Harper as prime minister.

Conservative spokesman Kory Teneycke set the bar for the Liberal leader’s performance so low earlier this week, it would be impossible to deny he bettered their expectations.

“I think that if he comes on stage with his pants on, he will probably exceed expectations,” Teneycke quipped Tuesday.


Lizzie May showed up sober, which frankly was the evening’s biggest disappointment.
