McQUARRIE – Mr. Dressup – It’s a tradition you don’t want to mess with

AS I WRITE this column, I realize it may cause some readers to wonder if I’ve gone to the dark side.  They’ll point, while avoiding eye contact and suggest I’ve lost my left leaning ways as a writer and should seriously consider hanging up the old keyboard.

However, and despite my best efforts to justify or at least rationalize the thoughts I’m having, I still can’t help but wonder what the heck has happened to or with Justin Trudeau?

After the age of political darkness had passed, I was left with hope and optimism when even interim party leader, Rona Ambrose summed up the end of Stephen Harper’s time in Ottawa with the words, “The bad man is gone”. But two years later and Justin Trudeau seems either unable or unwilling to move beyond his sunshine and lollypop world and provide some serious leadership.
