I'm a teacher; I'm a convenor; I'm a gatherer; I'm someone who reaches out to people and is deeply interested in what they have to say.

Justin Trudeau (born 25 December 1971 in Ottawa, Ontario) is the 23rd and current Prime Minister of Canada, and the Leader of the Liberal Party. He is the eldest son of former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, the first child of a previous Prime Minister to also hold the post, and was only the second child in Canadian history to be born during a father's term as Prime Minister; he was preceded by John A. Macdonald's youngest daughter Margaret Mary MacDonald.

Quotes[edit]

It stands against everything my father ever believed.
