The SNC-Lavalin thing is irking me not because it smells fishy (it does) but because columnists and pundits seems to be gleefully throwing it back in the faces of those who supported Trudeau.
My general support of Trudeau didn't come from his rockstar-like popularity. It came from the fact that I think he was less worse than others. So the "ha ha he's not scandal free" sentiment is petty. That kind of thing is just someone looking to get joy from other's disappointment. Fuck off with it.
I'm of the mind that all politicians do this kind of thing. Sheer's criticism doesn't ring true because you *know* the same kind of thing would happen there. I believe the NDP would do it too. Does it make it right? No. But is it a huge disappointment? No, because pressuring interests is the nature of politics. As is believing in something we can never have.
