Desserud Says Trudeau Is A Good Example Of A Celebrity Politician

Justin Trudeau's first week as Liberal leader has been a bit of a tough go.
The Harper government wasted no time in putting out attack ads hours after his win and a Parti Quebecois cabinet minister accused him of acting like royalty.

UPEI Political scientist Don Desserud tells CHSJ News Trudeau is the perfect example of the celebrity politician.

He says it doesn't mean he can't or won't do a good job but the point is that's not why he is there right now adding he's there to bring in new voters and if it works he doesn't have anything against it.

Desserud calls the Tory attack ads a mistep saying it shows the negative party politics these days.
