Justin Trudeau and his Love of Wool

I met Justin Trudeau almost three years ago in Toronto during Pride week. He was standing in the middle of Church Street with a big smile on his face. He had a few women around him and only one attache. We walked up to him and said hello. I told him that I thought he was going to be our next Prime Minister. At that moment it was more about feeding his confidence and less about believing it was actually possible. He was lovely, gracious and charming. Justin has just passed the 100 day mark in office, and he along with the rest of of Canada have a lot to be proud of.
