presented by

Professor Douglas Brown
St Francis Xavier University, Nova Scotia

Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party of Canada swept into office with a parliamentary majority in October 2015, with a mandate for more progressive, open government, promising a generational change in priorities. My presentation addresses the story so far in terms of the Trudeau mandate and its limitations.
