Justin Trudeau's 1st 100 days: By the numbers
Promises kept, promises altered - and a lot more to do
Today marks Justin Trudeau's 100th day in office following his swearing-in on Nov. 4.
Here's a look at some of the numbers behind his first days in office.
184: Promises in the Liberal campaign platform.
19: Number of promises kept so far, including:
- Announcing the withdrawal of Canada's CF-18s from the fight against ISIS.
- Getting the ball rolling on a public inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women.
- Bringing back the long-form census.
- Appointing an equal number of men and women to cabinet.
2: Promises acted on, but altered:
- The pledge to bring in 25,000 Syrian refugees has nearly been delivered, but it took longer than Liberals initially said it would. The government says it is now on track to meet the target by the end of the month.
- The middle-class tax cut and a tax hike for the richest one per cent went into effect Jan. 1 — but it turned out to be more expensive than promised, by about $100 million.
10? 20? 25? 30?: The size, in billions, of the deficit Liberals may run. It will be more than the maximum $10 billion promised during the campaign.
On the world stage
30: World leaders met since taking office, from Russia's Vladimir Putin to Mexican President Peña Nieto to U.S. President Barack Obama.
6: Official visits to foreign countries since taking office.
5: Summits and gatherings of leaders: APEC (Manila, Philippines), G20 (Antalya, Turkey), Commonwealth Heads of Government (Malta), UN climate summit (Paris, France), World Economic Forum (Davos, Switzerland.)
Next 100 days... and beyond
24: Total Senate vacancies.
5: Senate seats Trudeau wants to fill right away under a new "merit-based" process.
1.5 degrees Celcius: Limit on global warming that Canada and other countries agreed to strive for at the Paris summit. (Trudeau still has to negotiate the specifics of how Canada will pull that off, the subject of a first ministers meeting next month.)
94: Calls to action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission that looked at the harm caused by residential schools. Trudeau said he'll work to enact all of those recommendations, but but they cover a lot of ground, ranging from changing school curricula to getting an apology from the Pope (which he has said he'll ask for.)
1,363: How many days Justin Trudeau has left — before his official mandate runs out.
