Hey Janey- Well "good looking Liberal" is a phrase you'll never have to worry about hearing applied to you.

Go clean up your own house Madama Fonda.

Every time I see a post, or article, or pic of Justin Trudeau I find another reason to admire him. This is a photo of him helping a handicap-able person in a wheelchair down an escalator/staircase.

This leader helps people; our "supposed leader" mocks and belittles people living with disabilities.

Our favo(u)rite and friendly neighbo(u)rhood PM is now a Rolling Stone cover boy. Kind sensed it was going to happen to him given his rapidly-increasing popularity worldwide: 

The Justin Trudeau Thread

http://people.com/politics/rolling-stone-justin-trudeau-cover-reactions/

But I must freely admit there are some flaws in the cover piece. For examples, it calls the RCMP simply as the Mountain Police. Also would this positioning of him as the anti-Trump could jeopardize the NAFTA negotiations? (Doubt it) It's not the Liberty Party but LIBERAL Party. His National Defense Minister's last name is not spelled with a hyphen (Sajjan). But these are likely printing/tech mistakes. We must bear in mind that this cover piece is primarily aimed at us Americans who largely--and sadly--don't think much about Canada in their worldviews despite being good friends and could use a basic layman primer on the political scene and thus use him for an introduction piece. For years, I read MacLean's, Canada's equivalent to Time, Newsweek, and US News and World Report and learn some things about it. But how many of us take it upon ourselves and go beyond the mainstream surface (Justin Trudeau included) and regularly follow Canadian (and other non-American) media and the issues, histories, trends, and pop culture scene to get to know? Not many for many of us lack the essential mass curiousity or regular habit--must never be fleeting. We seem to know more about him in near 2 years in office rather than his legendary dad Pierre Elliott Trudeau who also served as PM and a Liberal for 15 years (1968-1979, 1980-84) and caused a stir in his time in office, largely national. I would love to live in Canada down the road very soon. Maybe next year with college. No doubt he's good looking. Mind you, not every single Canadian is behind him 100% in a multiparty democracy Canada has--something we should strive for south of the border with more Greens, Socialists, Social Democrats, Libertarians, and even Communists in Congress (in both houses) for example along with Ds and Rs. But I digress. There's a lot we need to learn from the Canadians, even if they happen to have more of a Westminster-style of running things at the federal, local, and provincial level. Without further adieu, this is the Rolling Stone cover story:

Thank you--belatedly--Sabrelady!

Writing to you today on the day of the 2019 Canadian federal elections. I'm watching the live CBC News Network streaming of the Election Canada new, although I could head to CTV News or Global--and sporting a red Nike Canada Basketball longsleeve T-shirt as I'm writing this for the occasion. Yeah, I'm a Canada geek despite being an American! Polls are officially closed in Newfoundland-Labrador with the rest of the Atlantic Canada provinces' polls--Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and New Brunswick--close to closing as I write this. He's currently in the fight of his national political life to ave his PMship running neck and neck against Conservative leader Andrew Scheer. This election seems more about rhetoric rather than pledges. We could possibly see a minority majority in the House of Commons in Ottawa's Parliament Hill when this is done tonight with neither the two major parties--Liberals and Conservatives--reaching the 170 seats claimed for a majority out of 338 and somewhere above the 38.5%. Personally, I hope for significant gains for both the NDP and the Greens in seats--and ousting Maxime Bernier of the People's Party of Canada. Election results are becoming too close to call.  If you know your Canadian history, his legendary dad Pierre Elliot faced a sophomore campaign run in 1972 that's remarkably similar to what Justin is dealing with in some ways. 

Must say that Justin Trudeau has been in his four years as PM has been somewhat disappointing a bit to me despite his global charm like scrapping preportional elections, and not talking and doing enough on the Indigenous issues. Canada as a soft power brand, however, has never been better with its pop stars like Drake, Alessia Cara, Shania Twain, Ryan Reynolds, The Weeknd, Shawn Mendes, Seth Rogan, and Justin Bieber all conquering, The Toronto Raptors won the NBA title and MLSE bro Toronto FC won the MLS Cup, bringing in and welcoming immigrants, sending peacekeeping troops, . Still like the guy but I, platform-wise, am more like Jagmeet Singh and Elizabeth May in my tastes, although I do like some Liberals. Still learning about the Liberal MPs. Trudeau is in Montreal right now with family watching the election results.
