Justin Trudeau makes headlines worldwide
Justin Trudeau is winning hearts and admiration of people worldwide
October 20, 2015 (Mississauga, ON) – Right from the beginning of this historic and marathon election campaign, Justin Trudeau had been clear regarding his message and vision for an “open, confident and hopeful” Canada. A Canada that doesn’t live in fear, but a country were Canadians live in harmony and make Canada stronger because of our diversity and differences.
“We have a chance to prove that fear and division won’t work here, not in Canada”, Justin Trudeau inspired crowds of thousands and thousands as he brought Canadians closer to each other and said during the televised debates, “A Canadian Is a Canadian Is a Canadian”
Beyond Canada and across the globe, the world is in awe and talking about the #RealChange Justin Trudeau has brought to Canada.
In the UK, The Guardian writes about Justin Trudeau and notes how Richard Nixon predicted Trudeau’s rise to high office in 1972 during a state visit to Ottawa, when the winner of Canada’s 2015 federal election was just four months old.
“Tonight we’ll dispense with the formalities. I’d like to toast the future prime minister of Canada, to Justin Pierre Trudeau,” said Nixon, who may have just been buttering up Trudeau’s father.
MailOnline writes, “His win – in which his Liberal Party took 184 of Parliament’s 338 seats – was not only applauded by his father’s left-leaning fans but also by swooning women around the world, who took to social media to dub tall, dark and handsome Trudeau the ‘sexiest leader in the world’….”
Gulf News Dubai states “The gambit underestimated Trudeau, the 43-year-old son of charismatic former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, and, by setting expectations so low, may have helped him instead.
Trudeau’s Liberals will form Canada’s next government after defeating Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper on Monday.”
The BBC’s Nick Bryant in Toronto says there is jubilation, but also an air of nostalgia about his victory, as the prime minister’s residence is also his childhood home.
The Sydney Morning Herald writes, “Born to a sitting prime minister who came to power in 1968 on a wave of popular support dubbed “Trudeaumania”, Mr Trudeau will become the second-youngest prime minister in Canadian history and brings an appeal more common in movie stars than statesmen.
Pierre once jumped from a trampoline into the crowd. With boyish good looks, Justin thrusts himself into throngs and puts his hand to his heart when listening to someone…”
Pakistan’s The News International covered the story and wrote, “Canada’s Liberal leader Justin Trudeau rode a late campaign surge to a stunning election victory on Monday, toppling Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Conservatives with a promise of change and returning a touch of glamor, youth and charisma to Ottawa…”
The paper also covered the story of two Mississauga candidates Salma Zahid and Iqra Khalid and wrote, “Among the candidates who attained victory were two Pakistani-origin women representing the Liberal Party of Canada. Iqra Khalid won from her Erin Mills constituency in Mississauga, while Salma Zahid also attained victory from her seat in the Federal Riding of Scarborough Centre constituency…”
Twitter wasn’t silent either and the buzz of tweets surrounded Justin Trudeau’s charisma and the historic victory.

So comes to a successful conclusion, a historic election, hotly contested and debated on social, economic and racial issues. But no better way to sum it up than what Prime Minister Designate Justin Trudeau said in his victory speech, “We know in our bones that Canada is a country built by people from all corners of the world, who worship every faith, who belong to every culture, who speak every language.
“We believe in our hearts that this country’s unique diversity is a blessing bestowed on us by previous generations of Canadians…”
“Have faith in your fellow citizens, my friends, they’re kind and generous, they are open minded and optimistic, and they know in their hearts of hearts that a Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian….”
