kool has a point. Compared to the US, Canada still has a very accessible political sphere. It is possible for someone with few connections and no wealth to speak of to run a federal campaign, get elected and rise through the ranks. This is difficult in the US, and the uppermost echelons seem to be becoming the domain of a relatively small cluster of wealthy and connected people.
JT is a good guy and I voted for his party, but I would never for a minute accept that if the T in his last name stood for Tremblay, Tompkins or Tokarczuk that he would be prime minister right now. Not a chance. That in itself is an ominous sign for our democracy.
