Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s popularity has waned in recent years, and young voters in particular have turned their backs on the 47-year-old prime minister.

Critics believe he is far from delivering on his 2015 election promises, and there have been several recent scandals.

Controversial

Among other things, Trudeau stirred up climate activists and Indigenous peoples by giving the go-ahead for the construction of a controversial oil pipeline between Canada’s east and west coasts.

He is also accused of stopping the investigation into corruption of a construction company operating in Libya, and earlier this year sparked a heated debate over racism when old photos of him, posing with a face brown and an Aladdin costume, emerged.
