Justin Trudeau inexperienced? Think again

If Justin Trudeau was a lawyer, one of his advisers was irritably pointing out the other day, he wouldnít be getting nearly as much criticism about his credentials for the Liberal leadership. But oh, he was just a teacher. Not good enough.

What is that? the strategist asked. Where does this kind of career condescension come from?

Mr. Trudeau is being criticized as a tenderfoot who lacks both experience and substance by Conservative Jason Kenney and Liberal foes including Marc Garneau, who is now demanding a head-to-head debate to unmask him. But the son of the storied prime minister wonít bite on the Earth orbiterís bait. Heís been around, speaking of experience, too long to fall for that.

The arguments against Mr. Trudeauís leadership preparedness, which will get more airtime in this weekendís candidatesí debate, certainly have some merit. But to give his defenders their due, they also tend to overlook a few things.

1. Comparing

Trudeau's inexperience to that of Harper's inexperience does not make a very convincing argument, especially when acknowledging:
"Itís on matters of policy substance that Mr. Trudeau is most vulnerable. He has shown little depth."
