justin trudeau candidate

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.
2012-11-14-LIBERALBANNER.jpg I am running for the leadership of the Liberal Party of Canada because I believe in our duty to restore the Canadian Advantage; to reward the hard work of Canadian families and tear down the barriers that stand in their way of prosperity; to restore Canada's true strength as a world leader, which comes from our shared values, not Stephen Harper's ideological vision; and to renew the commitment to pass this planet onto future generations in a better state than it was given to us.
