Trudeau ushers in a new era for Canada

Mississauga, October 23 (CINEWS): On November 4, Canada’s 23rd Prime Minister designate will officially begin work and needless to say he’s got his work cut out for him. Not so long ago, millions of Canadians didn’t believe he was ready for the job but Mr Trudeau has hit the ground running.
During his first press conference with Parliament Hill journalists as prime minister-designate, Trudeau revealed he’ll announce a cabinet on Nov. 4.
Trudeau. In his telephone chat with U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday, he touched upon contentious issues like the war against ISIL and the Keystone XL pipeline. He also dropped the bomb and informed Mr Obama that he’d be withdrawing Canada from the coalition currently bombing ISIL positions in Syria.
“I committed that we would continue to engage in a responsible way that understands how important Canada has a role to play in the fight against ISIL,” Trudeau said. “But he understands the commitments I’ve made around ending the combat mission.”
On the domestic front, Mr Trudeau promised he’d cut income taxes for middle-class earners as soon as Parliament resumes.
“Many of you have worried that Canada has lost its compassion and constructive voice in the world over the last 10 years,” he said, in reference to international criticism of the Conservatives’ foreign policy over the past decade. “Well, I have a simple message for you. On behalf of 35 million Canadians, we’re back.”
But while Trudeau confirmed his attendance at the UN climate change conference in Paris, his attendance at the others, including the G20, appeared up in the air.
While PM Harper was seen to be aloof, standoffish even, the next PM comes across as just the opposite. He is affable, warm and an extrovert happy to be around people.
“Sunny ways my friends. Sunny ways,” Trudeau told his enthusiastic supporters in Montreal. “This is what positive politics can do.”
Canadians, he said, had sent a clear message that it’s “time for change in this country my friends. Real change.”
“We beat fear with hope,” Trudeau said. “We beat cynicism with hard work. We beat negative, divisive politics with a positive vision that brings Canadians together.”
These are the words that have given people hope for a better and brighter future. Now comes the hard part, making it all work and come together.
