Trudeau tells Mansbridge his “first day as PM” priority: “Talk about climate change” #elxn42

It was embarrassing to watch: Asked one of the most cliched questions in political journalism — “What would you do on your first day as Prime Minister?” — Justin Trudeau was at a loss for words.

  • DMB

    First thing he wants as Prime Minister is introduce a national carbon tax system and cap and trade system. Typical Liberal his first instinct is to raise taxes and of course followed by introduce a mass spending spree massively increasing our national debt. He will be a federal version of Kathleen Wynne.

    • He would ruin Canada, just like his Butts buddy ruined Ontario.

      • jayme

        Even Wynn would not go this crazy spending wise every day they come out with massive spending plans.

    • That is a tax on the poor.

      And why aren’t consumers-rights groups over this?

  • kkruger71

    Two things here that scare me:
    He has a real shot at winning.
    Mulcair would likely be just as bad if not worse.

    • kkruger71

      Almost wishing Ignatieff would have won and used up the Liberals turn at bat.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        No, Iggy is tone deaf to everything.
        To him, politics is a game, an act, a show.
        It’s not.
        Politics affects the way we live.

        • kkruger71

          Oh I agree he would have been bad, but if I had to choose which one to lead a Liberal government, I’d take him over Trudeau.

          • V10_Rob

            Could have had an astronaut. Instead the backroom kingmakers went with the social media butterfly.

  • G

    Hey Peter,
    here’s a question for you, you overpaid Liberal shill, “What would YOU do on your first day of a USEFUL job that you are qualified for?”

    I’ll give you a little hint (since you’re journalist and therefore not too bright):
    The deep fryer needs cleaning.

  • disqusW6sf

    Oh my goodness. He is not even sure himself : “call together the premiers?” Gee, is that the right answer Peter? (scarcasm)

    • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

      I’m sure the rehearsal went better than the actual production.

      • disqusW6sf

        Yes, I wonder how far in advance he received the questions.

  • Waffle

    It’s hard to answer tough questions when you’re stoned.

    • Clausewitz

      From the picture he sure does have that post toke look on his face.

  • Ron MacDonald

    Now we know who is funding his campaign–the same assholes that funded Obama’s.

    • mobuyus

      He’s bought and paid for, that’s for sure. Pimped no doulbt by Mr. butts.

  • mobuyus

    There ya go the first thing a smoked salmon socialist thinks about is jetting(a champagne flight perhaps) off to Paris to limo around the cities finest restaurants and salons preening in their smug arrogance as they sip their expence accounts and prattle on about climate change. Wasn’t it in Paris that pass the tequila shiela Copps was hoisted on her own petard dashing all hopes of being the first elected female PM of Canada.

  • Clink9

    The guy is even more stupid than I gave him credit for.

    Run for your lives!

    • Alain

      And that was all his brain cells in top gear.

  • Isn’t he just dreamy?

    • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

      Mansbridge can’t stop admiring his hair.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        Mansbridge should have stayed at his job announcing flights at the Winnipeg airport.

        • Clausewitz

          I thought his gig was “Attention K Mart shoppers, here are today’s blue light specials”.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            I used to shop at the K Mart when I was a kid ’cause it was close to home.
            Fuck, I remember it like it was yesterday.
            I bought a shirt that had some sizing chemical in it and it gave me a freaky rash.
            A lot of things happened to me when I was a kid that weren’t normal.
            Food poisoning, allergic reactions to government built housing.
            I’m still here.

      • Well, not having much himself….

      • DVult

        It’s a shame that so much hair is wasted on such a doof.

    • BillyHW

      Oh no, does he have you under his spell Osumashi? Not you too!

  • wallyj180

    The first thing he would do is to boff Sophie in Dad’s bedroom.
    The second would be to phone his friends and tell them about it.

  • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

    Trudeau hasn’t thought what he would do on his first day as PM because even he doesn’t think he has a legitimate chance at winning.

  • Robert Deschamp

    ..1st. thing..get Pete a fat raise and beef up his pension…

  • Edubeat

    Yes Pastor Mansbridge “And the budget will balance itself.”

  • David

    sorta like his imaginary intellect.

  • eMan14

    I can’t help but believe he’s one part pale imitation of Obama, and second part Homer Simpson with nice hair.

  • BillyHW

    The muzzies are raping their way through Europe and this guy is talking about carbon taxes. Women should not be allowed to vote!

  • David Murrell

    People on this thread underestimate Trudeau. Granted, he is a tad empty upstairs. But he has organized a fairly adept team, a team that emulates the Obama victories in the United States. Part of the technique is to buy off, with cash, the media. If you don’t believe me, watch the first 10 minutes of any CTV national news show. Harper is going to lose, big time. And Trudeau has a good shot to become prime minister. The fix is in. It takes some competence to run a crooked, Tammany Hall political campaign.

    All the condescending remarks on this thread, or in other conservative media, do not amount to much.

    • Clink9

      Time to dump all Canadian stocks then. We can make tons of money out of this nightmare.

      • David Murrell

        I’m now 60% (US) and 40%(Can) now. When Mulcair or Trudeau wins, which one or the other definitely will do, there indeed could be a fall in the S&P/TSX and the Canadian dollar. All of my free cash is now in $US.

    • DD_Austin

      He hasn’t “organized” anything, he doesn’t have the mental ability to do that
      The “team” picked him, in fact they picked him over Garneau, in fact they want a air head that believes all that liberal leftist crap.

      Actually whoever is “PM” doesn’t amount to much eithier, they all follow
      the exact same polices, NATO, UN, , Immigration, HRCs are all
      exactly the same.

      Bozo the Chimp could be PM for all the difference it would make. In fact
      I’d prefer Bozo, at least he’d fling his shit at “honourable members” of
      parliament, which would be more useful than anyone else sitting there has ever done.
