Justin Trudeau By: faheem Lakhani

Who?

Justin Trudeau is the 23rd and current Prime Minister of Canada. Born on December 25th, 1971, he is the leader of the Liberal Party of Canada. He is also the son of former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. He graduated from McGill University in 1994, and the University of British Columbia in 1998. In 2011, Trudeau was elected leader of the Liberal Party, and in 2015 he won the Canadian federal election.

What does he do?

He is the current Prime Minister of Canada. The Prime Minister is the most powerful role in Canadian Politics. Before Justin Trudeau got into politics, he was a school teacher. From 1999 to 2001, Trudeau taught math and french. He didn't get into politics until 2008, and in 2015 he was elected Prime Minister. His role as Prime Minister is set to be over in 2019, unless he gets re-elected.

Where does he lead?

Justin Trudeau leads all of Canada, but he resides in Ottawa.

When did he become Prime Minister?

Justin Trudeau won the election in November 2015. He made history by winning the largest number of seats in the House of Commons, going from 36 seats to 184 seats.

Why does he lead?

Back when he was a teacher, someone asked him why he became a teacher, and he responded saying he wants to have ''a positive influence on the world''. Following in his fathers footsteps, Justin decided to run for Prime Minister, promising ''real change''. Although many are in favor of him winning the election, former Prime Minister Steven Harper doubted Trudeau, calling him 'too young' and 'inexperienced'

How will I go about questioning him?

How would I go about getting an interview with Justin Trudeau? It is very unlikely that he would have time to meet with me because he has way more important things to do, but if I tried to set up an interview with him, it would probably be declined. Some of the questions that I would ask are: how do you see yourself as a leader, and what advice would you give to people inspiring to be you. I would ask these questions because a lot of people look up to Justin Trudeau as a good leader, and many people use him as inspiration to aspire to be like him.
