Justin Trudeau: New Life for the Liberal Party?

I was fortunate enough to attend a Liberal fundraising event featuring Justin Trudeau on Friday, April 24th.  It was held at the Royal Glenora Club here in Edmonton and involved a sit-down dinner amidst various speeches including the keynote address by Justin.

Truth be told, before hearing him speak I had very little idea of Justin’s background apart from being the son of Pierre Elliott Trudeau and a new Liberal MP.  Before entering politics, Justin taught social studies and French to high school students in Vancouver.  With his abilities to engage and captivate his audience, to provoke further thought and discussion of the ideas presented, and to inspire people to act, one can easily see how he would have been a phenomenal teacher and will continue on as a great politician.
