Canada shows that Liberalism is not dead

Liberal International celebrates 100 days of the Trudeau-led Liberal government in Canada. It seems that it has not run out of energy and continues to serve as an inspiration for Liberal parties round the world. Those who have written off Liberal Democrat chances of being in power in this country again should also take note.
With numerous progressive, liberal values implemented in the Trudeau government’s first 100 days – here is just a small selection. 
  • Gender-balanced Cabinet
  • Providing safe haven for refugees
  • Unmuzzling government scientists

The Canadian Liberals won a huge victory in the October 2015 parliamentary elections, ending almost 10 years of Conservative rule. There is more here.
