Pierre Elliot Trudeau, Ottawa Civic Centre, April 06, 1968
Well Dear Reader, it is all in and all done. Justin Trudeau has become the Leader of the Liberal party of Canada. And it was all done in a mighty fashion, on the first ballot, with 80% of the cast delegate votes! If one is a real stickler for detail, his father Pierre Elliot Trudeau won on the fourth ballot with a mere 50.9%, way back in 1968. Sometimes the apple not only does not fall far from the tree, but actually grows into a larger tree.
|Justin Trudeau - The second cumming...|
It is only hours after the blessed event, so the Oracle of Ottawa hasn't had time for the acceptance speech to come up on You-Tube. But the Oracle of Ottawa did hear some of it on the way back from the standard trip to the upper reaches of the Ottawa Valley. He is even more lofty on the stump then his old man! That will drive the minions of the Harper Bund just nuts! But the Oracle of Ottawa was hoping to hear just one line, and he didn't. But as the Oracle said, he hasn't had time to hear it all in its entirety. Lets give it time.
The one great asset of Justin Trudeau, all green as he is and all, is that stuff emanates out from him, while Steve Harper is the kind of guy that sucks from you, the host, using fear and loathing as his tools. There is no fixing that, is there? Also with Justin, we don't have to worry about the psychiatric effects of the missing father syndrome. This man has not an angry resentful bone in his body, the sign of good adjustment and proper up bringing, stuff that is completely lacking in most of the minions of the 'Harper Government'.
Justin Trudeau will be smart enough to surround himself with the Best and the Brightest, and not only that, he will listen to them and take their advice. There will be no psychotic micro controlling as is the standard practice in the present 'Harper Government'. As far as in the House of Commons he should start acting like the Prime Minister starting tomorrow. He should let Bob Rae lead off in Question Period! Future Prime Ministers don't ask questions do they? He would be wise to stand to his seat sparingly and let the 'Harper Government' twist in the cold wind of change. All the while looking above it all, just like his dear old Dad used to do so well.
It was all quiet shocking to see the appearance of Jimmy Moore the present minister of propaganda or as it code named at present; the Minister Of Canadian Heritage, or what is left of it at present. He is losing weight faster than an Ethiopian in a famine. But poor little Jimmy knows the future, the 'Harper Government' is in reality quite unlikely to get to the end of the celestial mandate that should end in an election in 2015. The Oracle of Ottawa predicts that the 'Harper Government' will implode way before that date. And it will be joyous to watch and behold. The remainders will be chased like rats across the tundra. No mercy will ever be given.
The only thing that Justin has to do, in closing, is pick a good mantra and stick to it. His old Dad was great at it, and the Oracle of Ottawa highly recommends the mantra of the Just Society. It is a goal that you can put out there. It is a goal that always shines like a beacon to the people. It is a goal that always offers hope of a better tomorrow. Justin Trudeau should use it, the Oracle of Ottawa never tires of hearing it; Canada must be a Just Society...
