Justin Trudeau on the cover of Rolling Stone

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E - THE CANA­DIAN PRESS TORONTO —

Prime Min­is­ter Justin Trudeau graces the cover of Rolling Stone ac­com­pa­nied by a provoca­tive head­line: “Why Can’t He Be Our Pres­i­dent?”

Trudeau fol­lows in the foot­steps of for­mer U.S. pres­i­dents Bill Clin­ton and Barack Obama among the world lead­ers who have pre­vi­ously fronted the ven­er­a­ble pop-cul­ture mag­a­zine.

Trudeau is pic­tured with his shirt sleeves rolled up lean­ing against a ta­ble in the cover photo by Martin Schoeller.

In an ar­ti­cle pub­lished on­line on Wed­nes­day, writer Stephen Ro­drick con­trasts the poli­cies and style of Trudeau to those of his Amer­i­can coun­ter­part, Don­ald Trump, out­lin­ing their stark dif­fer­ences on health care, mar­i­juana le­gal­iza­tion and en­vi­ron­men­tal pol­icy. Trudeau is quoted as telling Ro­drick that while he dis­agrees with Trump “on a whole bunch,” the pair have “a con­struc­tive work­ing re­la­tion­ship.”

Trudeau says go­ing out of his way to “in­sult the guy or over­re­act or jump at ev­ery­thing he says (that) we might dis­agree with is not hav­ing a con­struc­tive re­la­tion­ship.”

Justin Trudeau now un­der­stands the "thrill that’ll getcha when you get your pic­ture on the cover of the Rollin’ Stone."
