One of three sons of Pierre Elliott Trudeau, prime minister of Canada from 1968 to 1979, and 1980 to 1984, Justin Trudeau swapped a teaching career for a chance to represent his father's Liberals in the Montreal electoral district of Papineau, and win it back from the separatists who took it in 2006.

A number of media outlets reported on Wednesday morning that Justin Trudeau will announce his run for the Liberal leadership next week.

Trudeau, the popular young MP from Papineau, is a force on social media, with more than 140,000 followers.

Most Canadians reacted positively to the news, saying that Trudeau would be an infusion of fresh blood into Canadian politics. Some were more sceptical and wanted to see what the young MP could bring to the Canadian political table.
