Justin Trudeau just can't lose at the moment. 

After a 2015 that saw him lead the Liberals to election victory and crowned Newsmaker of the Year by The Canadian Press, Canada's 23rd Prime Minister has now finished first in CBC Montreal's online poll for top news story of the year in Quebec.

CBC readers selected Trudeau's ascent as the top story, beating out the Charbonneau commission report, the guilty verdict in Guy Turcotte's murder trial and the arrival of Syrian refugees in Montreal.

Montreal Canadiens star P.K. Subban polled second behind Trudeau on the strength of his spate of good works on behalf of the Montreal Children's Hospital in 2015.
