LILLEY: Trudeau’s campaign-like school announcement all about politics


If it wasn’t an election campaign stop, Justin Trudeau’s appearance in Toronto Wednesday certainly looked like one. The prime minister flew from Ottawa to Toronto to hold a photo-op with a family concerned about their children going back to school and announce federal funding for provincial school systems. The feds taking credit for a safe back to school even though provinces are putting in far more money into it will help Trudeau if he gets the election call he’s hoping for. It’s all classic Trudeau, playing politics with a serious issue and using your tax dollars to secure the votes he needs. It’s also wrong.
