Trudeaumania

Here’s Canada’s prime minister, Justin Trudeau.  Can you imagine French president, François Hollande, in such a pose?   Levity…a wonderful thing.

And this is not the first time that Trudeaumania has swept the nation…or rather, the world, because the world is currently watching, fascinated, by this man.  Suddenly, Canada is in the limelight!  Justin’s flamboyant father, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, was Canada’s prime minister twice – from 1968 to 1979 and then from 1980 to 1984.  Here are two iconic photos of him, one doing a naughty pirouette behind the Queen of England and the other sliding down the banister of Ottawa’s Chateau Laurier Hotel.  Like father, like son?
