I wonder why the change? ... It would be amazing to know what goes on behind the scenes with these politicians.
Still a very powerful Jewish political lobby in Canada, and none more$o than in Montreal, which is Trudeau’s home riding. The oldest Jewish community in Canada lives there, about 100,000 of them (think Bronfman family, Mordecai Richler, Leonard Cohen, etc.) very connected to the community in New York.
Adding,, much like the large Jewish communiities in New York City and Palm Beach, Florida, the large Jewish communities to the north in Montreal and Toronto by-and-large tend to be fiscally conservative and culturally liberal. The tension within the latter is the Israel-palestine issue, where culturally & socially liberal Jews will fight tooth & nail to defend Israel and many notable intellectuals who are the loudest opponents of Israeli policy. Trudeau is deeply accustomed at all of it, he’s socialized in Jewish circles at the foot of his father who socialized in the same circles. And like their brethren in New York, these families have outsized power, infuence, money and lots & lots of lawyers.
