Contrition? Justin Trudeau didn’t come to say he’s sorry

A month into this crisis, the Prime Minister didn’t offer clarity on the key questions, placing a bet that the longer it goes on the less Canadians will care

The word hanging in the air as Justin Trudeau entered the National Press Theatre this morning, just off Parliament Hill, was “contrition.” Sources who remained unnamed, naturally, had assured reporters that Trudeau would use this news conference to express regrets, more or less, about the SNC-Lavalin affair that led to first Jody Wilson-Raybould and then Jane Philpott bolting from his cabinet.

I’m betting the SNC-Lavalin scandal will be akin to death by a thousand cuts.
