Canada’s New Prime Minister Has Good Looks And Malaysian Roots

The world is suddenly fixated on Canada, when Justin Trudeau, the liberal prime minister designate was elected.

It is undeniable how charismatic he sounds in speeches, and if you haven’t already noticed, Trudeau is also a standout with his good looks.

 

It’s time for Canada to once again work constructively with its allies. A new Liberal government will do just that.

So much so, that the Mirror UK even ran a piece with the headline “Is Justin Trudeau the sexiest politician in the world?”, acknowledging his good looks, while others on social media have raved about him being handsome, hot and even calling him a stud.

Interestingly enough, the son of former Prime Minister Pierre-Elliot Trudeau not only followed the footsteps of his late father, but also earned his good looks.

But there may be more to it as far as looks goes, he may have probably inherited it from his ancestors which are of Singaporean and Malaysian heritage.

In one episode in a television series on CBC called ‘Who Do You Think You Are’, tracing Justin’s mother, Margaret’s family roots, it revealed that she had a great-great-great grandmother called Esther, born to William Farquhar.

Farquhar is among the early founders of Singapore who arrived with Sir Stamford Raffles in 1819 as Singapore's first Resident, and his wife was the daughter of a Malaysian woman and a French officer.

Esther raised five children in Singapore and died at the age of 41, but no details were however given about her grandmother, the Malaysian woman.
