A new culture and mindset is emerging where entitlement is being exorcised from the Liberal Party of Canada's DNA. Trudeau personifies a new attitude: Canada and the national interest are coming first. The country seems to believe -- with good reason -- that Justin Trudeau and this renewed party, free of its black eyes and self-doubt, is in this for the right reasons and for a noble purpose.

Trudeau is a Leader I Trust

I liked what Justin Trudeau had to say at my campus this week. He found a way to make a pitch for his Liberal-leadership candidacy, in between very direct and open answers to the audience's questions. Youth need to be engaged in politics in a way like never before. And the issues we care about are what animate his campaign for Liberal leader.

Justin Trudeau: Our Chance to "Reset" Democracy

Justin is exactly what our country needs right now. For too long we've been starved for inspiration, for passion, for real engagement in the business of our beautiful nation. We've been on a slow and steady decline towards complete apathy. We have so tuned out as a nation -- and we really need to hit the "reset" button.

Why Justin Trudeau Is the Liberal Party's Biggest Liability

Justin Trudeau is dangerous because he can be easily caricatured by the Conservatives and the NDP. The Liberal party will have to be incredibly careful in shaping his narrative -- his story, because if they're not, if they allow his opponents to define him, he will do horrible damage to the Liberal brand.

Media Bites: Justin Trudeau is Simba to the Media's Rafiki

2012-04-27-mediabitesreal.jpg The Liberal Party may not be formally electing their next leader till April of 2013, but providing you got wind of Justin's announcement-to-announce last Wednesday, you've already heard the only story that matters. Feel free to take the next seven months off. The Rafiki-lifting-baby-Simba-over-Pride-Rock narrative is so strong at this point, in fact, that even the Trudeau-bashers seem bored and resigned. They can whine, but it's a whine of irritation, not impact.

Is the Liberal Red Fading?

These are not, nor have the past five years, been the best of times to be a card carrying member of the Liberal Party. I'm barely old enough to recall a Canada that come election night was painted a deep Liberal red. Anyone much younger than me has the right to ask: what Liberal Party?

Is Justin Trudeau Too Big a Baby to be Leader?

Trudeau is still a baby in the political arena who has a long road ahead of him. Before a baby can walk, he must first learn how to crawl.Trudeau will not receive votes for what he has accomplished. He will receive attention because of who his father was. This is not healthy for him, nor for the people he will be vowing to serve and protect.

Will Justin Step Up? Will Ezra Back Down?

2012-04-27-mediabitesreal.jpg Will he or won't he? Critics agree Justin Trudeau's decisive positions on looking dreamy and punching people obviously make him an ideal leader to spice up the stagnant third-place party everyone's grown sick of writing about. In Meta-media news, Ezra Levant has been reprimanded for using what's been described as a slur (but not by him) on TV.
