Joe Clark, phone home: you are hereby forgiven for the lost luggage incident

Because mistaking living Russians for dead ones probably trumps what happened to you on your 1979 world tour, big guy.


  1. Merrill Smith says:

    Well, at the time of the meeting both were still living. ANd who can tell one Russian from another anyway?

  2. Kelly says:

    Not sure the error matters politically. Most Canadians can’t even pronounce Nemtsov’s name and couldn’t find Moscow on a map. The top three most popular articles on the CTV news site are 1. What is the average penis size? Scientists have the answer 2. Last Canadian-made box of Frosted Flakes turns up on Ontario family’s table 3. Ghost bus: Driver-less TTC bus seen rolling through Toronto station…need I say more?

    Whoever wins the election will win because of some stunt in the last week of the campaign. All three major parties will be competitive going in, some sort of gimmick will do it. The media will grab onto something superficial because that is all they can do to survive is generate click bait.

  3. Ronald O'Dowd says:


    It’s at times like these that you want a human circuit breaker between unseasoned author and the For Immediate Release page.

  4. Peter says:

    “Mr. Nemtsov and I met in Ottawa just a few months ago, where we discussed his unwavering and passionate desire for a free and prosperous Russia,”

    OT, can somebody advise JT to tell his staff to stop putting all those flowery adjectives in his mouth? That sounds more like two groupies gushing over a rock band than serious statesmen.

    Not-Ready-For-Primetime Players.

  6. Lance says:

    Who is really going remember this? I don’t think voters are really going to give a shit……right now. But if Trudeau’s Team allows something similar to slip through during an election campaign though?

  7. Paul Brennan says:

    in fairness..there were 4 people in room based on picture …tough to remember everyone

  8. Joe says:

    Well if WLM King could channel his dead mother maybe M Trudeau is channeling dead Russians. “Fight ISIS if necessary but not necessarily fight ISIS” has a nice Prime Ministerial ring to it n’est-ce pas
