All Canadian governments focus on perception as much as policy. Id be 0.3% happier if I never heard the phrase were going to travel the country to talk to the people and get their opinions about subject X on any mildly controversial hot potato like marijuana, gun control or whatever else.

But Trudeau has done well on the coronavirus file apart from the curious and serious overreach in grabbing power for long periods of time, instantly dialed back. He has been both tough and diplomatic with the US. He has emphasized the seriousness and offered somewhat reasonable solutions. Ford has also benefited from these rare displays of maturity. But, as I have said elsewhere, it is easy to take bold steps and tougher to dial them back quickly. I hope Trudeau does this well, for the sake of all Canadians.
