Justin Trudeau, heir to the throne of a party that was once unmatched nationally but has since fallen into the electoral wilderness, is taked with bringing it back to government -- or at least relevance. He has much to improve, as recent years have marked the first time in its history that Liberals were neither in government nor the chief opposition. On the other hand, fresh poll numbers show Trudeau thrashing the Conservatives in a snap poll; unfortuntely for his followers, elections will likely come in 2015, by which time the attack ads Stephen Harper launched this week will surely have sunk his favorable ratings.
