The ironic thing is that it was Trudeau SR. that said about america “Living next to you is in some ways like sleeping with an elephant. No matter how friendly and even-tempered is the beast, if I can call it that, one is affected by every twitch and grunt.” yet it his son that is more than any prime minister since the cold war may have to deal with the realities of that statement. These are trying times  with rise of xenophobia and how we react now is what is going to define us, as a liberal party,  as a nation and as a people for generations to come. I mean politics used to be just a game or just a hobby, but with every passing day it seems that is more and more at stake come 2019 and what kind of people we choose to lead us.

For many its a new year, a chance to reflect upon the past to start anew afresh. Not for me so much, just another sunrise amid many seen and hopefully many to be seen. The desire to reflect and to change should not to be tied to when a number changes every 365 days , rather that impetus for that should be daily. What good have I done today? What wrong have I done today and improve upon for tomorrow? To ask oneself those questions does not take a year, but a mere moment or day. Even the sun that gives life to this earth arises new everyday and yet man feels to do the same much less frequently. How is it that man has forgotten that his life maybe measured in years, but is truly lived and experienced in moments, hours and days?
