It's almost the end of 2015 and a hallmark year for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

For starters, turn back the clock a few months to when he was just "Justin" to his political opponents — someone who was "just not ready" to lead. But after a 78-day election campaign, Canadians thought otherwise.

And so on Nov. 4, 2015, the Liberal Party leader was sworn in as Canada's 23rd prime minister.

Nearly two months have passed and Trudeau and his cabinet haven't had the smoothest road to drive on. There were the terror attacks in Paris that had some questioning Canada's commitments to taking in Syrian refugees. And other critics were quick to point out an economic outlook that didn't match his promise of "sunny ways."

And who could forget that short-lived "nannygate" debacle?

But for many, Trudeau's first few weeks will be remembered by international headlines, meetings with Canadians both new and old, and more selfies than you can shake a selfie stick at.
