Liberal leader Justin Trudeau brought out former Prime Minister Jean Chrétien at a rally Hamilton on the weekend. Within his twenty minute speech, Chrétien slammed the NDP for its stance on separatism. Both Trudeau and Chrétien told the rally that an NDP government would repeal the Clarity Act, which says any referendum requires a clear majority for separation. Chrétien employed his trademark folksy style to reinforce Trudeau’s message. He also told party supporters that it was past Liberal governments who restored prosperity after years of Conservative rule.
Does having Chrétien as a public supporter help or hurt Trudeau’s chances of being elected?
