Justin Trudeau is a disciple of free trade and globalism. His pronouncements before and during the G20 summit erased any doubt on that score. He is devoutly neoliberal, just like the guy he was elected to replace.
There are other views on globalism and free trade that come from those with both top-tier experience and a considerably higher intellect than the Dauphin. One of them is Robert Reich.
For two years, Robert Reich has been doing what Justin Trudeau has never done. He's been dissecting the Trans Pacific Partnership, the TPP, and warning what it holds for blue and white collar workers whose leaders enslave them to it.
Our fledgling prime minister is still in the embrace of what Reich describes as "globalony" - the myths of globalism.
Or you could get another view from Joe Stiglitz. The former World Bank chief economist, Nobel Laureate economist and presidential advisor, explains how the globalism our prime minister promotes doesn't deliver on its promises.
Or, for a Canadian perspective, here's John Ralston Saul:
We're not going to have this adult conversation with our government. There'll be a few hearings, sure. Window dressing. Then the prime minister will beam his charming smile, say "trust me," and sign the deal. And, if the informed critics are right, we'll be royally screwed for years, possibly decades to come.
As for the young whelp's performance at the G20 it's important to keep Trudeau's words in clear perspective. He dismissed the critics of globalism. That's all he did. He did not even attempt to refute their criticisms. All Trudeau did was what Trump does at every rally - he made empty assertions and nothing more.
