Canada's loss of UN Security Council seat a blow to Trudeau
(Justin Tang/The Canadian Press via AP)TORONTO, ONT Justin Trudeau arrived on the world stage with rock star popularity in 2015. He declared Canada is back and made winning a seat on the powerful U.N. Security Council a top foreign policy priority. It was Canadas second consecutive defeat in a bid for a seat and an especially big blow to Trudeau. Trudeau blamed the loss on Canadas late start in campaigning for the seats. Trudeau actually finished with fewer votes than Canadas previous prime minister, Conservative Stephen Harper, received in 2010.
