Justin Trudeau's First Week As Prime Minister Of Canada (12 Photos)

The first steps towards 'real change'.
Justin Trudeau's First Week As Prime Minister Of Canada (12 Photos)

It's been one week since Justin Trudeau was elected into office. After proving all of his critics wrong, winning the confidence of the nation, and dramatically sweeping a majority of seats in the House of Commons, our newest Prime Minister has certainly shown that Canadians were ready for change.

While Trudeau has yet to appoint his cabinet and officially take control of the country, it doesn't mean that the Prime Minister Designate hasn't been busy. One of Trudeau's biggest strengths coming into these elections was his affable personality and his solid grasp on effectively connecting with the people, so important if he ever hopes to lead us.

Based on his social media activity just in his first week, we have to say he's doing a pretty swell job.
