Below, we use infographics to compare / contrast Canadian federal leaders with well-known celebrities, fictional characters, and animals to help people better understand where they stand on the major issues.

First, we compare Justin Trudeau (the “grassroots” hope-and-change leader of the Liberal Party of Canada) to the Canadian with the most qualities in common with him:

Trudeau vs Bieber

Next up, we compare Prime Minister Stephen Harper (leader of the Conservative Party of Canada) to another one of Canada’s most hated musical acts:

Thomas Mulcair (leader of the federal New Democratic Party) was asked to be the villain in the next Avengers movie, but declined because “Hollywood is not socialist enough”:

Kenney vs Kirk
