Tell Us Which Hogwarts House These Canadian Politicians Belong In

YER A MINISTER, HARRY.

Posted on

Since Parliament Hill is ~basically~ Ottawa's Hogwarts, it's time we answer an important question: Which house would our nation's politicians be sorted into?

First, a quick recap of what each house represents, via the Pottermore wiki:

Gryffindor is all about courage, chivalry, and nerve. Although you may think this house produces nothing but heroes, there's been some stinkers too — they just don't talk about them.

Ravenclaw values intellect, curiousity, and wit. While these traits can make them delightfully eccentric, Ravenclaws are also known to be hyper competitive.

Slytherin welcomes students who are cunning, ambitious, and know where their loyalties lie. Slytherins have the potential for greatness within them, but despite their reputation, only some of them turn out evil.

Hufflepuff is where you'll find only the kindest, most trustworthy, and hardest-working sort of people. Often and wrongly labelled as the house for leftovers and misfits, Hufflepuffs are proud of who they are.

So let's get to it.

  1. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister

    Being the PM certainly means Trudeau is an ambitious dude — but which house best exemplifies his style?
