Justin Trudeau urged students to play an active role in making the world a better place during an impromptu speech while touring SFU’s Surrey campus Feb. 28. The former Vancouver school teacher and eldest son of former prime minister Pierre Trudeau, said he was inspired to enter politics by his father’s example.

“Time after time, people would come up to him, in restaurants or on the street, to tell him how much what he did at a high level had a very personal impact on their lives.

Early on I realized what was important in life was to have an impact on the world in which we live.”

Trudeau is the Liberal candidate for the Montreal riding of Papineau in the next federal election.
