Former Prime Minister Stephen Harper must be spinning in his political grave. His young successor Justin Trudeau has caught the eye of America’s magazine mafia.
The New York Times Magazine this past weekend delivered six pages on Canada’s leader in an in-depth article – ‘North Star’ – written by Guy Lawson, with photos by Mark Peckmezian.

VOGUE announced last week that it’s printing a profile of both the Prime Minister and his glamorous wife, Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau, in January’s issue.
‘Justin Trudeau Is the New Young Face of Canadian Politics”, Vogue, January/2016 – http://www.vogue.com/13377163/justin-trudeau-prime-minister-canada/
Both magazines have hefty readerships inside and outside the United States.
The cherry on top: President Obama has invited the Trudeaus to a State Dinner at the White House on March 10/2016. The last time this happened was in 1997 when Prime Minister Jean Chretien was welcomed by President Clinton.
