Canada's Liberal New Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau

Hosted by

Politics in Canada are undergoing a major transformation with yesterday's upset election of Justin Trudeau, son of the former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. A Liberal, he's a stark contrast to long-time Conservative Stephen Harper. But, in victory, Trudeau downplayed their differences, reminding everyone, "As I've said many times over the course of this campaign, conservatives are not our enemies. They're our neighbors."

Ian Austen, who reports from Canada for the New York Times, joins us from Ottawa.
