Debates & Dialogue

Hitting the halfway mark: has Trudeau been a success?”

Join Hart House for a talk featuring Karim Bardeesy (former Director of Policy to the Premier of Ontario), Mel Cappe (former High Commissioner to the United Kingdom and Clerk of the Privy Council), and Donna Dasko (one of Canada’s best known pollsters and SVP of the Environics Research Group) to discuss the legacy of the Trudeau administration at a halfway point in its mandate.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was swept into government on a wave of optimism and a promise of progressive, pluralist politics. Since then, he has promised much – a new way foreign policy, a more inclusive economy, a new chapter in Indigenous reconciliation, as well as a variety of social policy reforms. The question is: has he delivered, or will they – like electoral reform – end up as promises broken? We will be hosting an event taking stock of the Trudeau government’s legacy at the halfway point in its tenure.
