Marc Garneau accuses Justin Trudeau of empty rhetoric

OTTAWA—The Liberal leadership race has taken a more combative turn, with contender Marc Garneau openly calling out front-runner Justin Trudeau to deliver more than empty rhetoric.

“He has told Canadians that we need a ‘bold’ plan and a ‘clear vision’ without defining either,” Garneau, a Montreal MP and Canada’s first man in space, said in a sharply worded news release on Wednesday.

“On Justin’s two clear priorities, the middle class and youth engagement, he has said nothing. Therein lies the fundamental difference between Justin Trudeau and myself.”

Garneau, in an interview on Wednesday, said he very deliberately made the decision to go beyond merely “telegraphing” his criticism to stating it more bluntly this week. “It was time. There’s only two months left to the (April 14) leadership convention.”
