Canadian Prime Ministerial Candidates When They Were Sexy

Canadian Prime Ministerial Candidates When They Were Sexy

The newly launched website Vintage Voter has awesomely collected old photographs of Canada’s Prime Ministerial candidates in their youth, and it’s pretty incredible how aesthetically pleasing most of the quintet were in their prime… So in order of retroactive fuckability, I present are your potential leaders, Canada:

Elizabeth May… More adorable than sexy, and probably not enough of the latter to appeal to my 1.5ish on the Kinsey scale, but I’d most definitely want to hug her.

Gilles Duceppe… The currently dandyish Gilles somehow once looked like this. An admirable aesthetic, but not exactly my thing. Give me a few drinks, however, and it’s certainly possible…

Michael Ignatieff… The eyebrows remained a liability back then, but there’s no denying Iggy’s 70s-era sex appeal. And his bizarrely close resemblance to Alan Ruck circa “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” would probably alone be enough for me…

Stephen Harper… I cringe saying this, but college-era Steve was disturbingly kinda hot (at least in this photo, from this angle). How he morphed into his current reptilian robot self is a mystery of self-aesthetic evolution, but as long as he didn’t talk, those lips and hair would have definitely been swoon worthy.

Jack Layton… Moustache free and downright model-esque, my favourite candidate is thankfully also by far the most retroactively fuckable. Seriously, wow:
