I was a high-school teacher. I am a strong advocate for women's rights, and I'm not a woman.
—Justin Trudeau describing himself in a nutshell[1]

Justin "Joe" Pierre James Trudeau (born 1971) is the 23rd and current Prime Minister of Canada, and current leader of the federal Liberal Party of Canada. He is widely accepted as a dreamboat (for a politician anyway)[2][3][4][5][6] and is a (self-proclaimed) feminist,[7] advocate of legalizing marijuana,[8] LGBTQ-friendly,[9] pro-choice,[10] pro-immigrant,[11] climate science defending[12][13] antithesis to both his predecessor and his counterpart in the U.S.A.. He is the son of Pierre Elliot Trudeau, the 15th Prime Minister of Canada and reputed "ladies man". Like father like son, I guess.As a result, Trudeau enjoys a sort of "Canadian royalty" status amongst the media.

Trudeau is bilingual (a fact he really wants you to remember), and as a politician in bilingual Canada this has helped him immensely, especially when compared to the The Conservative Party of Canada's new leadership hopeful's attempts at grasping the language.[14][15]

Unfortunately, he is just like his counterpart in the U.S.A. on the issue of climate change, especially the further opening up of the Alberta tar sands, which are one of the world's greatest current climate disasters.[16]
