The legacy of Justin Trudeau is being debated more than ever as the federal election campaign unfolds and we all assess his previous term in office.
Today's program is a panel discussion which looks at that legacy. The discussion is based on the book The Trudeau Formula: Seduction and Betrayal in an Age of Discontent by investigative journalist Martin Lukacs. It's published by Black Rose Books. This event was the book launch, held on Tuesday of this week, October 1 at the Simon Fraser University Harbour Centre in downtown Vancouver. rabble.ca was a media sponsor of this event.
Martin Lukacs is an investigative journalist who has covered Canadian politics for more than a decade. He has been an environmental writer for The Guardian, and was a co-author of the Leap Manifesto. He lives in Montreal.

Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
