    All very interesting and if Mrs. Trudeau needs some extra help maybe the PMO and LPC could share the costs?
    However, here’s my real question. Can you just imagine the uproar if Mrs. Harper had said this to a reporter? Partisans and Harper-haters and the media would be in such an uproar, we’d never hear the end until it was featured in negative ads the next election cycle for sure. Deny it if you will, but gotcha journalists would be going on and on with the punditing and social media would have blown up. It probably would have shut down Twitter. Craig Oliver & Bob Fife to name two, would probably have had apopelectic fits.
    Hypocrites will deny this, but you know I’m right.

    ..why doesn’t party ask for a volunteer or two to work with Mrs Trudeau….there are likely many men and women with the capabilities (not tied to corporate sector etc) to engage that could be vetted as a hired hand would be – I would think it would be considered an honour, not cost the taxpayer, or liberal party , promote volunteerism which Canadians are typically very good at and allow good works to continue….

    JH,

    Probably. But no one can truly know the mind and heart of another.

    You know whats worse than some of the visceral, petty reaction that we’ve seen from this? –The torqued coverage the CBC has afforded this story.

    I don’t what the hell is going on at the CBC, but lately they’ve been spewing out some really shitty takes on “issues”. Its like they’re the goddamn “Enquirer” now; every single story thats related to the government feels like sensationalized spite.

    Its like they’re way over compensating for years of accusations of Liberal-bias by just torquing minor issues, like the SGT one, into massive controversies. Since the election, I’ve seen Power and Politics focus in like a laser on nuances in order to dust up discussions where they’re completely unnecessary.

    Not to suggest that they’re biased or anything, but the CBC really needs to get its shit together and stop manufacturing sensationalized stories to get them more views. Let the Opposition criticize the government, don’t do they’re job for them. If theres a legitimate story that needs to be covered, it won’t need incessant coverage to keep it relevant.
