I was hoping it wouldn't happen but in the back of my mind I knew it would. Justin Trudeau plans to run in a Montreal riding for the Liberals in the next federal election.
Just what we need, another nauseating Trudeau.
I'm old enough to remember "Trudeaumania" back in the late 60s. And this may sound sexist, but the women of Canada were to blame.
While they fell in love with Pierre Elliot Trudeau because of his charm and charisma and a fun loving image, they overlooked the fact he was bad for Canada and we're still paying the price for his economics.
He was the father of the Canada's national debt, while unemployment and inflation soared under his watch. But no matter what this asshole did, including building a deep and embarrassing friendship with Fidel Castro, he remained the darling of far too many Canadians.
Trudeau was also the architect of Canada's multicultural society. I know it's politically incorrect to have problems with multiculturalism, but there are those who are of the belief that we might be better off as a melting pot.
Canada needs people and should welcome people, but it might be nice if more of them put Canada first.
And let's not forget, Trudeau is also responsible for all those bilingual road signs you see outside of Quebec. Money well spent.
But that's all water under the bridge and now we are faced with the prospect of having another arrogant Trudeau to deal with. If you watched the Liberal leadership convention you may have noticed what a chip off the old block Justin is.
But worst of all, he's good looking. Very good looking.
And in this country, that more than anything else could eventually make the guy Prime Minister.
