Justin Trudeau, does this guy have a shot.....at a second term?

There seems to be quite a bit of opinions given by Canadians about Trump in the Trump thread so I thought I would start a thread just for Canadians to have a similar discussion about our own "leader". What's good, what's bad, what are his chances of getting re-elected and why etc. Looking forward to hearing from Canadians that have strong opinions about Trump (good and bad) what their thoughts are on our own PM. So, Thoughts?
BTW, if I knew how to do a poll I would post a poll about his re-election chances, yes-no.

Is there anybody that is a serious contender for the job? He has the media, kids, and women fawning over him. He is spending wildly to buy the next election. Recipe for disaster.

cuck-A man who is desperate for acceptance, approval, and affection from women. This desperation has led to the compromise of his beliefs and values, the desecration of his dignity and self-worth, and his inability to stand up for himself and what he deserves as a human being, eg. loyalty, fidelity, and honesty in a romantic relationship.

I think his carbon tax - pipeline gambit sinks him to at least a minority. If he backs TMX and get its going, there are entire districts in the lower mainland who will go NDP or green. If he doesnt and it fall through, there are entire districts in other parts of the country who will turn on him. His carbon tax will be rejected by several provinces.

He hitched his wagon to that fiasco. He owns it now and I think it is a huge liability. Thats the reason he never talks about it or wades into the fray.

Also a couple high profile defeats like Wynn and Notely and the economy slipping to 1.5% growth will help. We have to get him out of there before he destroys what country we have.

Qualification wise, the specimen on the left in your avatar would be a "contender" for the job.

While this is not Trudeau/Liberal specific, the sad fact is that as long as we have "party politics" in this country, we will never have ACTUAL democracy or representative government. No better demonstration of this is in a recent article I read recently about the new legislation expected to be tabled regarding guns. In the article, it is said that Liberal Rural MP's are "scared to death" of the legislation that Trudeau is proposing. Why in the world should an MP be "scared to death"?. They are SUPPOSED to be elected to represent the views and desires of their CONSTITUENTS and should feel free to vote accordingly. Being forced to vote along party lines, even if they know that it goes against the wishes of the majority of their constituents means that they are NOT necessarily representing the wishes of their constituents but, rather, the party. That, IMO is BS (regardless of the party). EVERY MP should run as and sit as an independent and, after the election, the PM should be voted for by the elected MP's. Seems to me that this would get the best ACTUAL representation of the citizens across the country because no MP has loyalty to anyone except those that voted for them. This way you don't have people voting for the wrong person just because they belong to a certain party. Also, the PM is not elected by one constituency but rather, representatives of the whole country.

Really what difference does it make?? It's just a question and is pretty clear as to what it means.

Just remember, he's got a lot more to lose in BC than anywhere else in the West, in fact than AB, SK, and MB combined. The Federal Liberals have 17 MP seats in BC vs 4, 1, and 7, respectively.

Who do you think he'll favour re: pipelines?

What does he really have to lose by forcing the carbon tax? He's safe in the West. BC loves theirs. Not sure about the east and atlantic.
