Justin Trudeau became Prime Minister of Canada in 2015. Trudeau is the second-youngest Canadian Prime Minister, after Joe Clark; he is also the first to be related to a previous holder of the post, as the eldest son of Pierre Trudeau.
According to Bella Caledonia:
On 21 October 2019, Canadians delivered a fractured and ambiguous election result to Justin Trudeau, who watched his parliamentary majority evaporate—but will nonetheless return to power at the head of a minority government.
Conservative leader Andrew Scheer secured the single largest number of votes—courtesy of landslide victories in Alberta and Saskatchewan—but not enough seats to dislodge Trudeau.
But Trudeau didn’t just lose his majority, he lost over a million individual votes—and that was in the face of a lacklustre challenge from the Conservatives and some broadly favourable economic headwinds. In fact—ironically—one reason Trudeau managed to survive at all is that, after assuming office in 2015, he ditched a pledge to overhaul Canada’s grossly disproportionate first-past-the-post electoral system.
You can actually chart the collapse of Trudeau’s popularity, in almost perfect linear fashion, over the course of his premiership. In January 2016, the Liberal leader had a net approval rating of roughly 30 per cent; by January 2019, he had a net disapproval rating of roughly 20 per cent. The more Canadian voters saw of Trudeau, and the more they realised how empty his progressive posturing was, the more they grew to dislike him.
As a result, Trudeau returns to office massively weakened both at home and abroad, a liability to his party rather than an asset, and faced with the reality of having to horse-trade his way through the next few years in parliament.
In January 2019, RT put Trudeau as #10 on their 2018 list of Russophobes, commenting "he's jumped on the bandwagon and made the usual allegations of meddling and election interference against Russia, saying it faces 'real consequences', but then again, who hasn't this year? The thing is though, Trudeau literally pretends to like everyone and everything, so from him, that kind of criticism really hurts."

For traitors they are as they betray the Canadian people by serving the interests of the Americans and their war machine. Free Meng Wanzhou, for so long as she is held hostage, so are we all.|
