FUREY: Trudeau was always a Hail Mary pass for the Liberals — and now it’s that way again

There’s one scene that I keep going back to these days. It takes place in Ottawa almost exactly six years ago. It’s the federal Liberal leadership event, the one that made Justin Trudeau party leader.

Looking back now, you’d think it would have been a massive affair — the beginning of the rise of the man who would go on to be leader of a G7 nation, ignite Trudeaumania Part Deux and become a darling of the international scene.
