    Who will take on Trudeau?

    As Canada's Conservative Party prepares to vote for its next leader, one question is on everyone's mind: how do you take down Justin Trudeau?
    In the summer of 2011, few could predict that today Justin Trudeau would be hailed as a symbol of hope for progressives facing anti-globalization forces. In fact, few could predict that Mr Trudeau would have any role representing Canada on the national stage, period.
    Back then, things could not possibly look any rosier for the Conservative Party of Canada, the historical opponents of Mr Trudeau's Liberal Party. Prime Minister Stephen Harper had just won the Conservatives' first majority in more than a decade, and the Liberals were in absolute disarray, having lost both 43 out of 77 seats in parliament, and their status as official opposition.
    Without a leader, and almost completely cut off of from voters in the west of the country, the Liberals had little to do but lick their wounds.

    Flash forward to today. After winning the Liberal leadership race in 2013, Mr Trudeau led his party to victory in October of 2015, securing a majority government and heralding a new era of "sunny ways" politics.
    At the party's leadership convention on 27 May. the Conservative Party will face the task of picking Mr Trudeau's challenger in the 2019 election. With 13 candidates, there are no clear front runners and few big names.
    Shark Tank host Kevin O'Leary earned comparisons to US President Donald Trump for his reality TV credentials and outsider status, but ultimately dropped out of the race.
    "All the candidates say 'I'm the person who can beat Trudeau'," Peter Woolstencroft, a political scientist at the University of Waterloo, told the BBC. "But it's going to be very hard to beat him."


    Short answer : no Long answer : NOOOOOOOOOOO!

    It's nice to see the candidates hanging out - not like at leadership conventions I remember from years ago when they would be in their separate camps, far away from one another.
    Mind you, those would be exciting, as a candidate who would be dropped off the ballot would literally move his group of supporters over to another candidate - I remember watching those as a child, even.

    "First of all a few thank yous. To my wife Jill. The fact that she stood by my side this entire time is the greatest honour of my life."
    "Thank you to my kids"

    "To my amazing campaign, supporters and volunteers thank you."
    "This win is because of your work, and your efforts and because of our Conservative vision for Canada."
    "I want to pay a special ... and ask for a big round of applause for Maxime Bernier.
    "I plan to ensure the very best of those ideas are carried on and help us win in 2019."

    "I'd like to thank Stephen Harper.
    "The first leader of this united and dynamic Conservative party. I enjoyed working under his leadership. He's a man who will always stand tall in the Conservative movement."

    "Now today the work begins.
    "To all Canadians from coast to coast the next Conservative government will be looking for new ways to make life affordable by cutting your taxes, making it easier for the private sector to create jobs."

    "We are the party that believes there is more to society than just government! Trudeau's Liberals are so focused on photo ops, selfies, that they don't care if their policies hurt but don't help the middle class. Sunny ways don't pay the bills. I think that forecast for sunny ways was like so many other forecasts that we've seen, but I guess it's always sunny in the Caribbean."

    "I can't let Justin Trudeau do to my children what his father did to my generation,"
