Letters to the Editor

Trudeau willing to listen

Letter of the day

Re: Gathering Grits under his wings (April 15). Over and above all the chatter about Justin's lineage, good looks or lack of experience, I think that he appeals to a wide segment of Canadians for two main reasons:

1) He is willing to listen and consult with Canadians about their vision of Canada going forward.

2) He has made it clear that he wants to serve all Canadians, in all regions of the country, and that hyphens (read divisive politics) will stop with him, both inside and outside the Liberal party.

His message has obviously resonated with a large number of voters who have been turned off by the cynical politics, attack mentality and control tactics of the Harper Conservatives.

Trudeau has also demonstrated that his vision of a fairer and more compassionate Canada, based on the principles of consultation, inclusion, service and respect, can raise money in and of itself and that he is not beholden to any one lobby group or constituency.

As he so eloquently and genuinely put it, his constituency is each and every one of us in this land of Canada we all love. The challenge now is for us to roll up our sleeves and get to work.

Congratulations to the Liberal Party of Canada for crowning King Trudeau with the appropriate pomp and pageantry. Now the fizzle begins.
