After reading this Global interview of Liberal MP Dominic LeBlanc, I’m left wondering who is less prepared for their position – LeBlanc or Liberal leader Justin Trudeau?
You have to shake your head when someone who has had a life-long immersion in federal politics can look so silly during an interview and out their leader as lazy like LeBlanc did:
I ask him if he is the one who decides on the questions.
“Um. You’re taping, eh. Ah,” he says, hesitating for a good 13 seconds before explaining that ultimately he “sort of calls” the decisions.
What about Justin Trudeau?
“He doesn’t participate in that,” says LeBlanc.
“Sometimes he will ask us…to give him advice on where we thinks he should start. Like, what subject should he start on.”
So what is Trudeau doing while his caucus prepares for the day?
“He’s probably dropping his kids off at school,” LeBlanc says, insisting neither Stephane Dion nor Michael Ignatieff attended such meetings.
“I mean, I don’t know what he’s doing at 8 o’clock.”
Using Dion and Ignatieff as examples of Parliamentary success is bright right?
Then he follows up with this flat-out lie:
“He [Mulcair] appears to have a short temper. I’ve never seen Justin Trudeau lose his temper.” (see here)
Thinking LeBlanc needs a babysitter himself.
