CN QU: Editorial: Where There's Smoke ...

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 07:00:00 GMT

The Record, 20 Sep 2017 - It's been almost two full years since young Justin Trudeau and his Liberal party performed one of the most impressive revivals of a political party in Canadian history, regaining power from the Royal Canadian Harper Government and providing the country what was, in contrast, a progressive, marketing friendly face to the world.
