So there you go.
James Di Fiore [who's dat? don't know] had a great take on Mr. Trudeau's decision:
Trudeau will not lead the LPC into anything other than extinction. You can't just pretend someone is a good leader. They actually have to be seen as a statesman. Justin is not a statesman. He is the world's only 40 year old you could accurately describe as precocious.
I'm thinkin' Mr. Di Fiore is not a fan.
