Canada is a country so lacking in real scandals that their news media has to get its scandals anywhere it can. It's especially a problem since Canadian media looks south and sees that Donald Trump probably breaks the law more in a typical week than Justin Trudeau has done in his lifetime.
I really think that the press holds good people who are politicians - like Trudeau and Hillary Clinton and Obama and Macron - to a much higher standard than assholes like Trump.
Anyway, so the Canadian media takes any little thing they can and blows it up into a scandal.
The latest is that Trudeau ate a chocolate bar during a Conservative filibuster.
Just stop, Canada. Count your blessings and stop.
