It's a damn shame, but I have no grasp whatsoever regarding Canadian politics. I had the general impression that Stephen Harper was just this side of "stomp a baby seal to make friends and influence people" level of evil, and in the general sense he was horrific for energy and the environment.
But the sad truth of the matter is, all I know about Justin Trudeau is he's the son of Pierre Trudeau and basically my age and also terrifically good-looking. He really is. Fine, actually. Also unlikely to be baby-seal-beating evil. Which may actually sum up my political "need to know".
