The World is Watching Canada — and Hoping for Harper’s Defeat

Jahanzeb Hussain

As a former international student who has spent more than half a decade in Canada as a journalist and activist, I’ve been following the election campaign closely. Listening to people in Pakistan, my home country and current location, and hearing the reactions of some of the people in my community back in Canada, I sense that the landscape has changed. People whom I would expect to be generally indifferent to the elections, such as international students and recent immigrants who were apathetic about politics in their home countries, are agitating for change.

Yay! I'm happy to hear it.

I am happy for my Canadian friends! Trudeau looks like a balanced reasonable leader with pragmatic views domestically and internationally.
