Justin Trudeau expected to follow in his father's footsteps
Liberal MP Justin Trudeau has told Montreal's La Presse that he will run for the leadership of the federal party.
The 40-year-old member for Papineau told La Presse that he'll make the announcement next week.
The paper says several Liberal sources confirmed Trudeau will hold a news conference in his constituency on Tuesday.
At that time, Trudeau is expected to confirm that he'll be attempting to follow in the footsteps of his father, former prime minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau.
The next Liberal leader will be elected April 14, 2013, in Ottawa.
