I'll never understand the continued Canadian fanboy drooling over this guy, like he's Justin Bieber. What are you, a 12 year old girl? Seems a lot of people's analysis stops at the cute hair. Maybe he'll light up a joint on New Year's Eve on live TV to raise his popularity even higher.

Here's his response to China holding 2 of our citizens:

"OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canadians and people around the world are “extremely disturbed” by China’s detention of Canadians.

Trudeau told reporters in Mali that Canada is impressing upon the Chinese how important it is to release detainees Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor."

Wow. This dude is tough. Fights for Canada. I'd be scared if I was the Chinese.

This is MY country he is supposed to represent. Not the world. There is no place for a pansied ass leader representing us.
And your response would be? Or perhaps what would you like Mr. Scheer to say?
Not a fan of Scheer either to be honest.

Is it too much to ask for a leader that unequivocally stands up for Canada?
Fair enough. I'm just trying to flesh things out here. Is there a statement he could have issued that you would've supported?

I think Trudeau could cure cancer and you could still hear the whining in Alberta from St Johns to Alert to Victoria.

I’m not a fan of him, personally. He’s a bit too much of a yes man—trying to please everyone with little substance. But man... try taking a drink every time you read a “destroying the country” hyperbolic statement in a comments section and you’ll be blackout drunk in five minutes.

Personally I think he’s the best entertainment our tax dollars can buy. There’s an awful lot of laws, precedence, due process, and checks and balances which prevent guys like him or his predecessor or the clown down south from doing any real damage.

Wage disparity is dependent on market forces. Americans are more desperate for pilots because of their 1500 hour rule that used to be almost defacto in Canada until the shortage hit, plus bigger markets means making profits with higher volumes and lower margins.

Market forces may well change in Canada, but for now there is no shortage of qualified people willing to work mainline for cheap.

I've become less and less satisfied with this Trudeau as time goes by, but his statement on the Chinese detention of (at the time) two Canadians was inline with what most would call a diplomatic tone. Now, he could have instead launched a full broadside at Xi Jinping calling him "little rocket man" and egging him on saying he's got a bigger button, but that doesn't really accomplish anything - we've got enough issues without a bunch of narcissistic idiots rattling their nuclear sabres.

One of the truest things posted on this site. I'll add another: politics and voting is a scam.

For starters, he became Prime Minister of a country. Not the easiest thing to do.

So all you need to qualify for being the prime minister of Canada is be born in the right family?

Once again except for who his father was what has he accomplished?

Mind you when I see his name mentioned the first image in my mind is him and his family all dressed up in that East Indian garb on his visit to India, so I guess he is noted for something, being an embarrassment to his country.

So let me get this straight. Are you saying that you think that literally the only reason he won the election was because his father was also a PM?

Most politicians are nothing more than opportunists that make great promises to get elected and then deliver very little once elected.

On the other hand Trump at least has a very impressive background in building things and making a small fortune doing it.

He promised he would build a wall on the border to help control illegal aliens and it looks like he is determined to keep that promise.

All while cheating contractors, going bankrupt several times, and being sued endlessly. Real track record of success there. He also promised that Mexico would be paying for said wall. I'm sure the pesos got lost the mail. :roll:

Literally the only reason why Trump is wealthy is because his father is wealthy.

It’s been said that he’d be a lot richer today if he’d simply invested in the component companies of the Dow Jones rather than his various failures and scams.

It would be interesting to see where any one of us would be 40 years after getting “a small loan of a million dollars”.

Well. Don't get me wrong... I'm pro Trump for a few reasons... But it's none of those... You are distracted by the irrelevant bullshit... And ultimately he's no more qualified than Trudeau...

None of them are.

We wouldn't elect people that are truly qualified to lead us.

So Trump and Trudeau are both unqualified. Who else would you pick? Who is truly qualified to lead?

Oh god!?! Trump vs Trudeau guys... really? They both suck of course but this wage disparity existed before them and will after.

I don’t think the majors have felt the shortage of pilots like the regionals have. So I am not sure the 1500 atpl is a good explanation. It explains bonuses and contracts at the regional but have any of the majors offered these bonuses or adjusted their groundschools to include a CTP course for non ATP guys?

I’m a moderate/ swing voter. I have voted for every winning Prime Minster in the last 20 years. I’m not a fan of Trudeau’s dress up apology tour. However Trump is a racist sexual predator. No matter what he may accomplish I can’t get past those two things
