Trudeau horror?

I think that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is a caring person and genuinely cares about the people of Canada.

Re: Erik Duivenvoorde’s letter ‘Horror Show: Trudeau as king,’ (The NEWS, Jan. 28).

My first thought after reading this letter was “what?” According to Duivenvoorde, our prime minister should not appear to the public as a caring person. I think that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is a caring person and genuinely cares about the people of Canada. An example of this caring was his recent visit to the school in La Loche, Sask. to grieve with and console the people after the school shooting that happened there.

We are in a new era that involves more social media and selfies than in the past. Trudeau has accomplished a lot in the mere three months that he has been in office. I was going to list the promises that he has come through on, however, the list is long and I’m sure that you can Google it and find out for yourself. So, no I don’t believe that his time away has taken away from his duties.

The people of Canada voted and they chose to elect the son of a former prime minister who was in office from April of 1968 to June of 1979. Curious as to why Duivenvoorde believes this shouldn’t be allowable and isn’t acceptable. To describe our new PM acting like a king is ludicrous. Duivenvoorde claims that we have lost democracy to genetics. The reality is that our PM is down to earth and relatable and just happens to be the son of a former PM.

In the short time that Trudeau has been in office, there have been both negative and positive comments in the media about his performance thus far. I would say that on most of the social media sites and in a lot of the major newspapers, etc. the majority is leaning towards the positive in their estimation of his performance.

As for the comment that it’s who you know and not what you know that got him elected, again, the voters of Canada voted and they elected Trudeau and it wasn’t because of who he knew.

I’m obviously not the only person that feels this way — I am proud to be a Canadian again. The approximately 10 years we spent with Stephen Harper as our prime minister was a real, live horror movie.
