Trudeau’s open mic tour takes guts

It just does. And I said so on Tasha’s show yesterday. Also on Brian Lilley’s show last night.

Stephen Harper never, ever did this unscripted, unscreened stuff. Few Prime Ministers have, in fact.

Also on, Tory Jamie and Dipper Anne – and they (sort of) agreed. Brian Lilley even (sort of) agreed!

Other stuff was discussed, here:


  1. Ronald O'Dowd says:


    Any time you go out of your way to face the general public, (not just partisans) that’s good — provided that your responses are straight from the heart and the genuine article.

  2. The Doctor says:

    I don’t disagree with what you say, but my reaction is, what’s the point? I’d prefer him to be spending his days actually working on things to improve the lives of Canadians, fixing problems (e.g., NAFTA, softwood lumber) and running our government. Fact is, JT prefers these touchy-feely, symbolic group gropes to doing the grungy stuff I mentioned. As for the hecklers, JT, Butts & Co know that for every heckler like that, there are tons of these vapid, goo-goo eyed JT worshippers who cream their jeans every time JT goes out on tour like this (quoth their facebook feeds: “oooh, look at the cool socks he was wearing!”).

    • Matt says:

      Nothing more than a taxpayer funded pre-election campaign tour.

      Has he said anything of note? Anything different from his House of Commons sripted talking points and soundbites?

      No, he hasn’t.

  3. James Hunchuk says:

    the prime ministers policies are as far right as harper. all he is is the feel good guy that bamboozles the ignorant of the country.

  4. Gord says:

    I’m not a big fan of Trudeau, but I do have to applaud him on this. I think more politicians should have to face their constituents in a public forum and defend their positions. I highly doubt the town hall here (Edmonton) will be packed with fawning Trudeau fans. I would also be surprised to see a lot of hecklers. He’s likely to be asked some tough questions, which is a good thing.
