Trudeau, 44, led his Liberals to a surprise election win last October on the back of a promise to change politics. He named a cabinet with an equal number of men and women and dominates the media in a way few of his predecessors did.

Yesterday he answered questions on Twitter for 45 minutes, including one about whether a hot dog was a sandwich, “Yes. That way, when asked what you had for lunch, you can say ‘a sandwich’. Sounds waaaay healthier,” he replied.

Other subjects included Arctic security, gay rights, taxes, national security and youth unemployment.

Trudeau will face a tougher challenge next month when his government releases a budget designed to boost our economy. He conceded this week he would run a larger deficit than initially promised.

And what does Trudeau think of The Force Awakens, the latest Star Wars movie?

“Loved it. Glad there was no Jar-Jar, literally and metaphorically,” he replied on Twitter.
