The country hasn’t seen it for two generations.
Just like his late father in the 1960s, Justin Trudeau had them cheering and chanting his name.
Premier Kathleen Wynne even gave the incoming prime minister a hug as Liberal staffers and MPPs did their best to get close to the country’s new leader.

Wynne is the first premier to sit down with Trudeau, albeit only for a short time, as they were both going to attend the funeral for Ken Taylor, the former ambassador to Iran.
Afterward, Trudeau said they had ”just a great conversation on a range of issues.  Look forward to working together.”
Quite the contrast to Prime Minister Stephen Harper who dismissed requests to meet with Wynne for over a year.
In a joint statement issued following their meeting, Trudeau and Wynne said they discussed jobs, climate change and retirement security.
On the final issue they said they would be ”active partners in the national discussion on pension enhancement, including the CPP and ORPP.”
After the meeting, staff said Trudeau agreed to Wynne’s request to ask Canada Revenue to help Ontario create and administer its new provincial pension plan.
