PETERS – In Kamloops and in Canada, Trudeau’s celebrity sheen has worn off

WHEN TIMES GOT TOUGH for the Liberals, Justin Trudeau could always count on Justin Trudeau.

He could flash that thousand-watt smile, lose the shirt and go for a jog on the beach, photobomb a wedding and take selfies with the happy couple.

Regardless of his politics, the world saw a young, energetic leader who appeared optimistic about the future.

It’s no surprise that his election in 2015 struck many as a breath — or an entire gust — of fresh air through the stodgy halls of power.

Trudeau’s first term has now drawn to a close, and it’s clear the celebrity sheen has long since worn off.

James Peters is the radio anchor at CFJC, coming to Kamloops in 2006. He anchors the afternoon news on B-100 and 98.3 CIFM, and contributes weekly editorials to the CFJC Evening News. He tweets regularly @Jamloops.

  1. JT has faced an intense scrutiny perhaps even unparalleled. But his critics have it easy except maybe for in depth reality check. From the carbon tax to electoral reform to “endless deficits” the choices made by this government can also be viewed as ok under the circumstances.
