Reportedly, Justin Trudeau addressed his federal Liberal cabinet during a cabinet retreat in Vancouver, B.C. due to speculation about his political future in Canadian politics.

The cabinet meeting was said to be around the issues Canadians are facing economically, with Trudeau reportedly saying that he believes the Liberal plan will “lead to prosperity beyond the immediate challenges,”.

On Tuesday, September 6, Trudeau told reporters that his primary focus right now “is on the economy”.

“We are at a time in an era where we’re facing many, many different challenges and Canadians need a government that is focused on them. And that’s exactly what we are doing,” Trudeau told reporters on Tuesday.

However, recent polls are suggesting that Trudeau is tanking in popularity and in the good graces of Canadians. 

In polling from earlier this summer from Abacus Data, 39% of Canadians said Justin Trudeau has been a “Bad/Horrible” Prime Minister.

Largely, Liberal Party of Canada voters were the individuals who said that he has been “Great/Good” in the role.

Regionally, Albertans were more likely to view his role as Prime Minister as negative, while more eastern provinces viewed Trudeau more positively than Alberta and western Canada.

However, eastern provinces had a nearly equal breakdown among respondents with Quebec respondents having 33% with a favorable view, 30% with an “OK” view, and 30% with an unfavorable view.

Generally, in each region of Canada, the respondents had a more unfavorable view of Justin Trudeau as Prime Minister except for Quebec which had a slightly more favorable view (33%) versus a negative view (30%).
