Since meeting Ivanka Trump PM Justin Trudeau has lost focus. Election reform, Pot Legalization and Budget slipping through the cracks
The Liberal government is in crisis mode as they try to bring Justin Trudeau’s focus back to Canadian Politics.
Key party leaders including: Finance Minister Bill Morneau, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland and Andrew Leslie, the Liberals’ parliamentary secretary for Canada-U.S. relations have called a rare weekend caucus meeting to stage an intervention with their leader.
Since meeting Ivanka Trump in Washington the PM has canceled election reform and has been procrastinating on legalizing marijuana and presenting a detailed budget and plan for the economy. Ivanka seems to have been a distraction and Trudeau’s main focus has been on meeting with her in New York and trying to get Ivanka moved to Ottawa permanently in the role of US Ambassador to Canada.
The liberal team wants to bring their leader back to reality before Canadians catch on. It is not clear whether having Trump permanently in Ottawa as Ambassador will help the problem or make it worse!
