Newspaper article

Sunny Ways or Gloomy Days? Checking in on Liberal Promises

Date

Abstract

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s October election victory speech invoked the “sunny ways” philosophy of one of the country’s most prominent PMs, Sir Wilfrid Laurier.

“Sunny ways, my friends. Sunny ways,” he said after winning the election in which the Conservatives tried sharply divisive tactics, like a proposed ban on the niqab.

The promise of positive politics caught on so well the Liberals posted a dedicated explainer to the sunny ways school of thought in January.

“While more than 120 years have passed, Prime Minister Trudeau shares Laurier’s belief that the ‘sunny way’ remains essential to solving the complex problems facing our country,” it concludes.
