The eldest son of former iconic Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau (1919 – 2000), Justin Trudeau was elected Tuesday as the next prime minister of America's northern neighbor. A leader of the Liberal Party of Canada since 2013, Trudeau, 43, represents the Papineau district of Montreal, Quebec. He was baptized Roman Catholic and married in the Catholic Church.
Trudeau, who is the second-youngest prime minister of the country in its history, has vowed to make Canada more open to immigrants and refugees who are fleeing the Islamic State terror group. He has also signaled to President Obama that Canada will end the Royal's Air Force's participation against bombing missions against IS.
Considered predictably liberal in his politics, he does, however, support the Keystone XL pipeline. Many conservatives in the United States and Canada view Trudeau as the Canadian version of Obama. He's in favor of higher taxes for the wealthy, the legalization of marijuana, and increases in spending for social programs. more >>
