He once fought in a charity boxing match. What makes him qualified to lead a
nation? Let’s take a closer look at Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
and find the truth. Justin was born in 1971, making him about 46 years old.
He is the son of former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, so many
people may have voted for him just because they liked his dad or his
familiar surname. How about his qualifications? Well, he worked as a
school teacher, teaching math and French language. He started a masters
degree, but never finished it. Trudeau participated in a charity boxing
match against an opponent, Conservative senator Patrick Brazeau, who agreed when asked on Trudeau’s behalf by their
mutual hairdresser Stefania Capovilla. You’ve gotta admit, at least his hair looks good. Then in 2015 he was
elected Prime Minister. But his actions have come under careful scrutiny. A report from the ethics commissioner
determined that Trudeau had violated four provisions of the Conflict of Interest Act. In regards to his leadership,
the road has been quite bumpy. The Liberal Party promised to run a deficit of about $10 billion per year, but
Trudeau’s Minister of Finance announced in his first budget in March 2016 that the government would have a $29
billion deficit in 2016 and 2017. That’s a difference of 19 Billion Canadian dollars (or about 15 billion USD).
To further the critique of him, under his leadership, the Canadian court stated that Canadian Omar Khadr, who
was captured in Afghanistan and spent years at Guantanamo Bay on charges of terrorism and admitted to using a
grenade to kill a US soldier, would be awarded over ten million dollars “in relation to his ordeal abroad and any
resulting harm.” Just to set the record straight, Omar’s father was thought by Canadian intelligence officials to
have been associated with Osama bin Laden. So, is Prime Minister Trudeau loved by all and considered a good leader
by all? Doubtful. Maybe Trudeau should return to charity boxing matches and let other real politicians lead Canada.
