I can appreciate that Mr Trudeau wants to replace outdated dogma with new and improved dogma and trade in old comfy assumptions for shiny new ones.

In fact it is a obvious assumption, very much bordering on dogma, that every politician running for office wants the same non specifics for our country.

This is another good reason why the retirement age should be brought back to 65 or 63.

Mr. Trudeau writes: " Our future demands leadership that answers to the middle class, not the political class, and that puts the public interest ahead of self-interest. "

I ask you Mr. Trudeau will you sign a pledge that guarantees you and the LPC will work for "ALL" Canadians? And if you do get elected and should not live up to that pledge, will you then resign?

"We the people" need to clearly understand what you believe is the singular PURPOSE of government as well as what is the singular PURPOSE of the Liberal Party of Canada. Along with that we need to know what PRINCIPLES you will follow to ensure that what you believe is the PURPOSE of both government and the LPC. Can you please tell us Sir.

Sounds like you've had a little too much southern 'TEA' in your diet, Mr. WOLF. 'We The People' is an AMERICAN phrase and your questioning regarding PURPOSE of GOVERNMENT definitely has a TEA PARTY aroma to it. Perhaps if you stop leaning on the CAPS key long enough to actually LISTEN to Mr. Trudeau you might actually get some IDEA just what he STANDS for.

Isn't Mr Trudeau the guy receiving help from THE AMERICAN DEMOCRATIC PARTY ? Pretty sure he is.
08:59 PM on 11/14/2012
So Americans have a monopoly on those three words? Maybe, 'We the sheeple' would be more along the lines of our (your) reality. You have obviously missed the point of what Wolf was eluding to; yours is a typical circumvention of the point, which is a skill mastered by the Liberals of today....

That is nicely written and to the point. Sounds like he is a conservative.

As a life long Liberal I have wanted to see that change for some time. We need the younger generation to take the baton and run with it. It is time for passion for the future to outweigh the status quo. Good luck Justin.

do you think that in 2012, with the highest number of ethnic gangs now present in Canadian history, and the highest number of ethnic enclaves from city to city

that your dad's policy of multiculturalism, IE dividing people on race/language/culture/religion, and somehow hoping things turn out well, has completely failed ?

ethnic gangs?? Is that a crime reference cos if it is, the crime rate has dropped. Ethnic enclaves? Oh you mean communities.. like the ones that flourished from the beginnings of Canada.. Dividing people? Ride your horse out of here. It's celebrating people. All people.

ethnic gangs mean ethnically inclusive gangs, you know, non "multicultural", IE only Serbs allowed in Serbian gangs, only Viets allowed in Vietnamese gangs, they are now the dominant form of gang in Canada, just like America, and no, I mean enclaves, a community is connected to other communities and the city at large, an ethnic enclave is insular, keep ignoring reality though.

A very good article. I have to say though, most of the things said here were rather vague. You imply that you will improve youth employment and Canadian Competitiveness. How will you do so? You imply that you will reduce dropout rates. How will you do so? As so on and so forth for your other points.

I have seen too many politicians make vague promises, and take no action. Please give us the details of your plans, so that the voters can make a more informed decision.

Also I checked out your website. It might be a good idea to put a section for the policies you support, so that someone need not look through the internet for a while to figure out what policies you support.

And mile wide and an inch deep. Expect no more.

I don't honestly expect them to provide more, but I may as well ask.

This is unedited old LPC Red Book rhetoric. Fool me once?
02:25 PM on 11/14/2012
I gotta say this is the first time a politician has given me goosebumps for a good reason.

I'm excited to keep following your campaign Justin, please keep doing what you're doing, you have a country that needs you.

Sorry, you comment is just plain silly. Vote LPC, and when he governs from the right, you'll wish you had voted for Tom Mulcair.

Justin Trudeau inspires a great "yawn" from within me. The hole Liberal leadership coronation - I mean - campaign does that. I once was a member of the Liberal Party - during the latter part of Pierre's leadership, and all of Turner's, before I decided to adopt my current, non-partisan, "I don't really listen to any of them much" stance. For a while I thought about signing up for supporter status - but what's the point? Trudeau's going to win, I'd probably be bombarded with phone calls and e-mails from him and from those pretending they have a chance to beat him, and I don't want that. Maybe if they threw in a free toaster with supporter status?

Two reasons our youth are unemployed are the worldwide economic problems and the entitlement attitude of the youth. The current government is dealing with the first very well in spite of the problems the Liberals have caused this Country over the years. The second is a socialist mentality that has slowly poisoned our way of life over the same period of years. That last thing this Country needs is more Trudeau liberal leadership.

Oh gosh...really? It's not only the youth and unemployed who can be classified as being some research...government have been cutting social programs way before Harper and company hit the country with their incestuous love affair with industry...foreign-owned multi's are the BIGGEST welfare bums on the planet...wake up before your country loses what's left of its sovereignty...

Justin you are young & have lived a very privileged life. You represent one of the poorest ridings in the country with one of the highest unemployment rates. You see the problems & envision bold solutions, yet are blind to the cause. Until you understand the cause you won't comprehend the solution.

Canada is a Democracy in name only as are most developed countries. Yet first & foremost, all are Capitalistic societies. Consumerism & consumptionism are the tools of Capitalism.

You see Justin, the Capitalistic experiment has run it's course, we are in it's final stages. There are fixes, many have already been tried, all have failed. We could try reseting the clock back 100 years by bringing those off shored manufacturing jobs back at low wages. A world war is always good to keep things going, there also short term fixes. 9/11 was an attempt at the war route, as you can see it didn't last long. Infrastructure spending was another that had only short term affects. We have now moved to the last step which involves austerity, it to will fail. I guess the news today from Europe is telling the tale of austerity measures.

I think you would make a fine PM, but it's evident by your blog here today you simply don't understand what's needed to fix the problems. You would only make things worst than they already are.

That last paragraph puzzles me. If he does not understand the problems why do you think he would make a fine PM?

billll - He's charismatic like his father, something Harper, Martin & Chretien are not. We are entering a time when that quality in a PM will be very important.

I'm a liberal supporter, but I have a hard time with Trudeau.

What he's saying is true, but he has had an chance to help people in these situations as an MP, but has never done anything.

I think he'll make a great party leader someday, but needs to spend more time showing what he's capable of, rather then just talking.

Again, if he has done nothing as an MP and has not shown that he is capable why do you think he'd be a great party leader? This is not 'reality' TV, it's the real world.
12:27 PM on 11/15/2012
I think he'd make a great leader in the future after he has had a chance to put his promises into action. 
He's great at uniting the liberal party, and giving the party a much needed boost of energy. At this point, the Liberal party is on life support. 
They need a leader who can make the party relevant again and unite it. If Trudeau can do this, and get more experience/accomplishments in parliament he'd make a great leader.

Good luck to you. It'll take a lot of hard work to convince people to return to the Liberal party, but I think a lot of people want to be convinced. The hardest part will be convincing people that the party has learned from its past mistakes and is committed to a better way of doing business.

The NDP has moved closer to the political center than ever before and the Liberals are moving from the political center right toward the center and even toward the left in some of their views. These two parties need to merge because they are of like mind. The green party should join them as well. This will stop the vote splitting and the result will be that we can get rid of the far right extremists in the Harper government. Harper only got 36% of the vote when he got his majority gobernment which means he does NOT represent anywhere near the majority of Canadians.

I realize this will excite the Harperites who'll scream about the evils of a coalition as they've done in the past. The fact remains that Harper formed a coalition of his own when he merged the reform party, the old conservative party with his tea bagger party and Harper calls his coalition conservatives or the Harper government as he likes to be known.
