1. It won't help the "Liberals" much

Justin Trudeau is considered an intellectual lightweight by many Canadians. He has none of the passion and brilliance his father brought to the job.

Plus, there's far fewer reasons for any progressive voters(the sort Justin, in theory, would appeal to)now that the New Democratic Party is the official opposition, with almost three times as many seats as the Liberal Party, and with a program that actually IS significantly different than the Conservatives, unlike the Liberals, who spent most of the 1990's and early 2000's, their last spell in power, governing as a center-right austerity party(which means they'd do so again if they were returned to power).
