I think it needed an editor – it’s about 30 too long. The “sharp end of the Covid stick” was weird writing. A war room is likely going to find that some of the people in the spot aren’t Canadians.
But it’s smart. It doesn’t even mention Trudeau or his leadership rivals, and thereby avoids partisanship at a time when we know we all need to be coming together. It looks and sounds Prime Ministerial.
It is the Biden approach to political opposition: lift people up, pick your targets carefully. It probably will win him the leadership.
As we head into the weekend, let’s take a moment to remind ourselves of those who continue to put service above self during this pandemic. pic.twitter.com/Bc9gJAbUfT
