Trudeau a man of the people

'He was taught by one of the greatest politicians in the history of Canada'

Dear Editor,

In the editorial labelled Trudeau’s messaging (editorial, July 2) you state that the Conservative Party is ahead of the Liberals wherein the June 26 poll shows the NDP with 35%, the Liberals with 29% and the Conservatives at 28%. Not as you stated in your editorial.

You are obviously not a Liberal fan and should keep that to yourself.

As for Trudeau saying that he would like to bring in electoral reform just shows that he agrees with the NDP and the Green parties.

His quick email to all shows that he is a man of the people and in no way does it sound as if it was written to look like “a buddy’s drunk test on a Saturday night”. The same goes for the message he sent out after the broadcast. He is a normal Canadian who values family time as well as his work. When has there ever been a politician anywhere who wanted to get the message out to the people by letting us know he is just like all of us.

One must remember that he was taught by one of the greatest politicians in the history of Canada, Pierre Elliot Trudeau. Many people did not like his line on running the country because he was ahead of his time and the people of this country could not get their heads around his ideas at the time. He was a man who would have taught his sons well and Justin is showing that he was taught well.
