‘Just watch me’: Justin Trudeau invokes father’s famous words when asked if he can beat Stephen Harper
Liberal leadership frontrunner Justin Trudeau appears to have little problem embracing his father’s controversial legacy when it comes to taking potshots at Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
On a near-empty Porter Airlines flight from Halifax to Ottawa Tuesday evening, Trudeau was sent a note from a fellow passenger asking: “Can you really beat Harper?”
“Just watch me,” Trudeau wrote back, invoking Pierre Trudeau’s famous phrase during the 1970 October Crisis. (Screenshot/CP/Twitter)
