MALCOLM: You’ve got to admit, Trudeau’s getting good at giving excuses


The civil service, apparently, gave Trudeau a binary option: WE or bust. No one else could deliver this program other than WE — a charity that had recently laid off hundreds of employees, saw its board of directors chair and was embroiled in its own financial and ethical controversies. Trudeau has great respect for the civil service, he said with a smile, as he twisted a knife into the backs of his loyal bureaucrats, but this was entirely their doing. While the big bad media has been painting Trudeau as the incompetent and entitled antagonist in this story, the truth, according to Trudeau, is that he was the white knight — the ethical north star in a PMO frantically rushing to help Canadians at all costs.
