This article comments on the political and economic conditions of Canada after the retirement of Pierre Trudeau as the political leader. Apart from a few loyalists, the only mourners after the resignation were Tory strategists. There is a conflict between the Tories and the Liberals to form the government in Canada. Liberal John Turner is fast becoming leader-in-waiting, receiving delegations, earning returns from a lucrative Toronto law practice, and building a national organization. The economy left by Trudeau is staggering under enormous deficits and record unemployment. Inflation is also increasing at a rapid pace. The Tories, under their new leader, Brian Mulroney, are seeking public endorsement as an alternative to the discredited Liberals.
