Justin Trudeau Sits Down With HuffPost: What Do You Want To Ask The Liberal Leader?

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau has spent an entire campaign fighting the perception that he’s not ready.

His opponents on the right say he just can't be trusted to handle the really big issues — the economy and security. At least not right now.

His opponents on the left have pointed to his support for Conservative Leader Stephen Harper’s controversial anti-terror law as proof that his promises of "real change" are hollow.

But the Liberal leader has run a campaign that has pivoted away from Tories and New Democrats in some big ways.

While his rivals pledge balanced budgets, he vows to run deficits to double infrastructure spending.

He is the only leader saying he will scrap the much-maligned F-35 procurement.

And yes, he still intends to make marijuana legal.

As the marathon campaign comes to an end, polls are suggesting Liberals are on the move and might just have the momentum needed to end the Harper era.

In a matter of days, ready or not, Trudeau may be elected the next prime minister of Canada.

But first, he will sit down for a one-on-one interview Tuesday with Althia Raj, The Huffington Post Canada's Ottawa bureau chief.

And we want to know what you want to know.
