Trudeau's Tofino romp exposed him as a hypocrite in the eyes of the public. How can he continue to govern?
He lowered the flag of the Canadian nation indefinitely to mark his sensitivity to First Nations' concerns. Our nation's singular banner, under which wars have been fought and the country worked its long way through numerous crises, had to go half-mast because he wanted a gesture that would offer political appeal. But he would not cancel a surfboard holiday because that gesture would interfere with his weekend. The prime minister has been exposed as a hypocrite, who pretended to be acting based on high-minded morals and values, but failed to live up to them.
