Justin Trudeau was elected at the head of a majority Liberal Government on Monday 19 October after an unusually long and eventful general election campaign, ending almost ten years’ of government by Stephen Harper and the Conservatives. Since this rather unexpected victory, Trudeau and the Liberals have set about turning Canada in a more liberal direction and the new Prime Minister has been very active on a number of fronts, both at home and abroad, including climate change and the issue of missing and murdered indigenous girls. The dynamism of the new Government has naturally invited comparison with the leadership of his father, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, between 1968 and 1984. With his approval ratings still high, this lecture seeks to make an interim assessment of Justin Trudeau, in terms of both style and substance, at the end of his first 100 Days.
