There's no accounting for taste: "Magazine names Trudeau as 'Worst Canadian'." The likely explanation for this absurd result:
The Beaver admits the online poll used to determine the winner of the Worst Canadian contest is far from scientific. As a result, the magazine came up with an alternative list formed by polling "10 of Canada's most renowned historians and writers of popular history."

That list, which can only be found in the printed edition of the magazine, is described by The Beaver as "arguably more measured, and takes into consideration the full breadth and scope of Canadian history."

Trudeau didn't make the cut on that list.
But, you know, what else could you really expect from such an asinine "contest" in the first place...
