Does Canada Need Justin Trudeau? Canadians Have Spoken

"I honestly don't know if me as leader is something that would help the party or the country" -- Justin Trudeau.

Justin, we asked, and Canadians have spoken.

OK, not all Canadians. I'm using this the way politicians do when they say, "Canadians want this", or "Canadians want that".

More precisely, the impartial, erudite readers of the Ball Bounces have spoken.

Here are the results.

3% of you (13) believe Justin would help the Liberals and the country. Unfortunately 3% falls into margin-of-error territory.

18% of you (71) think Justin would help the Liberals and hurt the country. So, "good for the Liberals, bad for the country".

11% of you (42) think Justin would hurt the Liberals and help the country. These people would probably say, "Run, Justin, run!".

The vast majority of you (66%, 249) simply say, walk or run, "Hey hey, ho ho; Trudeau has got to go!".

So, Justin, there you have it. Now you know.

Stay tuned for more Ball Bounces polls.

Canada will need Justin Trudeau the very moment fish will need bicycles.

Rats! I missed the poll! That's because I just discovered this blog. Anyway, I think the Liberal Party needs Trudeau. I can't think of a better, fresher face to replace the grim, whining Ignatieff. But does Canada need him? Not in politics, it doesn't. He'd be an attractive candidate, just as his homeboy Ben Mulroney would be; but the woods are full of attractive candidates who aren't fit to run a shoe store. I certainly wouldn't vote for Trudeau. Yikes. What a thought: another Trudeau. It makes my skull throb.

Indeed. Best comment so far.

"... nothing intellectually compelling or challenging.. bald assertions coupled to superstition... woefully pathetic"
