Trudeau Son Becomes Canadian PM

In  the late 1960s, Pierre Trudeau became Prime Minister of Canada, he was young, handsome, and Liberal, a far cry from earlier Prime Ministers.  He seemed to emblematic of the era, a throwback to our John F. Kennedy.  Pierre Trudeau led Canada from 1969-1978 and again from 1980 to 1984. 
This week the Liberal party is in power again after 10 years of  Conservative rule.  Justin Trudeau, son of Pierre is now in power and promises to bring progressive policies forward.  Trudeau has a Northwest connection, he received his degree in education at University Of British Columbia.  He also taught Math and French in Vancouver.   The outgoing Prime Minister was Stephen Harper, a Conservative.
