Justin Trudeau calendar has 33 pictures of Justin Trudeau

One of the advantages of living where I do is that I happen to be in the Papineau federal riding. It’s apparently the smallest geographically in Canada because of its high residential density.

But more importantly, it’s the riding currently being represented by Justin Trudeau, Liberal Party superstar and the closest thing this country has to a political prince, making him an easy target for harmless fun.

Being a constituent apparently gets me one free calendar every year. This year’s came last week in my mailbox – almost four weeks into the year, far beyond the point when calendars in stores enter liquidation pricing. I don’t know if it’s a party expenditure (since it has the Liberal Party logo on it) or if it comes from his MP’s budget (since it has his parliamentary contact information on the back).

What I do know is that, like last year’s calendar (this is apparently his third), it’s filled with pictures of Trudeau, in most cases more than one on each page. As you can see in the video above, I count 33 pictures of Trudeau in his calendar, which is the same as I counted in last year’s. Some photos are captioned as “Justin”, others “Mr. Trudeau”, others are written in the first person, and the rest don’t have a subject.

But that’s not interesting. Nor is it interesting that his welcome message spends more time bashing the Conservatives than talking about his family. What’s interesting is that someone thought it didn’t look silly that a calendar with 12 months has 33 pictures of Justin Trudeau in it, and a year later decided that shouldn’t change.

    You were expecting fresh pictures of Sophie after her rollerblading accident in and around the federal election campaign? :)

    Isn’t Westmount-Ville-Marie the densest federal riding? I mean, thanks to all the high-rises in the Concordia ghetto (well, Shaughnessy village, actually…) and the Golden Square Mile???

      Most of those high-rises are commercial buildings. People don’t actually live there. And because the riding also encompasses areas like Mount Royal and Jean Drapeau parks, it has a higher area.

    Now I want a Fagstein calendar. It would feature a picture of the top of your head peeking into the frame on each page. Sue.

    Little Justin is shaping up as a spoiled loose cannon. The only way he can get himself in the news (which he seems to crave) is to swear in the House or threaten separation. YAWN. The sooner this dilettante crashes and burns the better.
