Bad, very bad or disastrous? Assessing the damage to Trudeau’s political brand

Hold it up to the light at a certain angle and the mess our prime minister finds himself in today seems like the most Canadian of scandals — a terrible, perhaps even politically lethal outcome borne of ridiculously benign intentions all around.

Justin Trudeau, his handlers will assure you, was thinking only to protect Canadian jobs. And his now ostracized former attorney general and justice minister, Jody Wilson-Raybould, was thinking only of prosecutorial independence.

The media were complicit in building Trudeau’s “Brand” in the first place disgusting the majority who would not buy their bullshit. A plague on both their houses.
