Lots of people have been making that comment on Facebook. I take the point (it really helps to have political connections if you want to be a politician!) but the point I was trying to make in this post is a broader one: Trudeau is well prepared for a career as a Liberal PM by his training in the liberal arts. At a time when the humanities get dumped on and also cannot resist their tendency to self-flagellate, that deserves celebration.
