Trudeau’s family isn’t fluff, his politics is

Family life isn’t “fluff,” as so many angry pundits have exclaimed after Chatelaine published a photo spread of Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau’s home and family. The accompanying article detailed the dynamics between him and his “yoga-practicing, whole-foods-eating earth mom” wife Sophie Grégoire and their three gorgeous children.

Many Canadians spend more time thinking about daily family life – what they’re making for dinner or where to buy their child’s Halloween costume – than what happened in Question Period that day.

This includes the more than three million Canadians who read Chatelaine (note that’s a million more than Maclean’s, according to Rogers Media), and so the personal details of a political leader do appeal to them.
