In the 1970’s, Love American Style was a show on the old TV airwaves. It was a comedy show with little vignettes about love in America. One episode speaks directly to the politics of Justin Trudeau in Canada today. In one episode, the wife catches her husband in bed with another woman. She starts to accost him for his infidelity. His reaction is where Trudeau’s political strategy is brought to mind. The cheating husband simply denies he has committed adultery. He denies the other woman is in the room, even though she is right there, putting on her clothes. In the SNC-Lavalin scandal, Trudeau consistently denied and misrepresented. His denial when the story first broke turned out to be a verifiable lie. Evidence later made it clear his staff had in fact pressured then-Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould to give SNC-Lavalin a differed prosecution agreement in lieu of criminal prosecution. The ethics commissioner ruled the government had indeed put inappropriate pressured on the attorney general. Like the husband in our vignette, Trudeau just denied everything. Even though the facts have become clear and obvious, he continues to deny.
