Prime Minister Justin Trudeau won a landslide victory in the last election with the massive support of left-leaning voters because of his pledges to reform our first-past-the-post electoral system and combat climate change. Without these pledges, he could not have won left-leaning voters and the NDP would have won the last election. Now by approving two pipelines, he has angered two of his most loyal constituencies: environmental activists and indigenous peoples. If he abandons the pledge to reform the electoral system, most left-leaning supporters might abandon him and his meteoric rise in politics will be short-lived. Conservatives will return to power and the Liberals will return to political wilderness. Personally, I will be sorry to see a promising career cut short.
