Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau was an ornament to his office and to Canada when he exhibited both intelligence and style. His style has now degenerated to the lowest common denominator of the "finger" salute. His intelligence has now degenerated to that of Marie Antoinette: when people ask for jobs, he tells them to go out and find work.

Really, it is time for his resignation.
