Obama Endorses Reelection Of “Progressive” Trudeau

The Huffington Post reports:

Former United States president Barack Obama has endorsed the re-election bid of Justin Trudeau’s Liberals. Obama made the announcement on Twitter Wednesday, touting Trudeau as a “hard-working, effective leader” who takes on big issues like climate change.

Since leaving the White House, Obama has made several visits north to speak to crowds in Canadian cities, including Toronto, Montreal, and Calgary.

In a few different occasions, Trudeau has caught up with his former U.S. counterpart for a private dinner or a beer. Canadians head to the polls on Oct. 21, but an estimated 4.7 million Canadians voted in advance polls over the weekend.
