Trudeau’s defence of Monsef gets the facts wrong

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau finally addressed the controversy surrounding the birthplace and citizenship of his Democratic Institutions Minister Maryam Monsef.

Not surprisingly, Trudeau defended Monsef and claimed on Thursday her critics were “spreading misinformation.”

In his remarks, Trudeau made four key points about Monsef’s case. Two of his claims were not relevant to her case, one was flat out incorrect and one even contradicted his defence of his star minister.
