Sorry Dippers, your guy is a liberal and Canadians' Liberal of choice is the guy whose hair is on his head, not his face.
NatPo's latest poll finds if Canadians had a chance to vote today, they would elect a strong Liberal minority government led by Trudeau while consigning you New Dems to the cellar yet again.
The Lesson - the Layton/Mulcair shift to the right is the New Dems' death march. That's just as Murray Dobbins foretold earlier this week in The Tyee.
The Good News - now, more than ever, Canada needs a strong voice from the left, the very thing the NDP has always done best. When the NDP is at its best, Canada - the whole country - is better off for it. You don't need to capture 24 Sussex Drive to best serve Canada. But you still have a long way to go. You have to clean house and sweep out this centrist bullshit. Think Douglas, think Lewis, think Broadbent.
