    Well my initial feeling was similar to rangebob's - the situation is still ongoing and for the most part he'll just be in the way. Once the fire's contained and teh people are safe, go take a look yourself so you know what you're talking about when you're looking at solutions and funding. Leaders running around the scene just tend to make things worse and theyr'e just useless photo ops till the situation settles down and you know what you're dealing with.

    As it starts to drag on tho and as the fire isn't actually BEING contained, I think he does have to revisit that decision. The people need reassuring. They're scared, they're unsure of the future, they've just been traumatized and lost everything - and it's dragging on with no end in sight. This is the time when he should at least be touring the evac centers and telling people that he's on the case, that there will be help, and that it's going to be ok. He should be meeting with notley just to stretch a hand out and be seen to be ready to take real action.

    Trudeau could be helping to bring a little reassurance to people severely in distress and it's time to go and fly the flag a little.

    Trudeau is the least reassuring being I can imagine I would want around.
    Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.

    It's far too grubby for an immaculate selfie.


    It's probably that even if he takes his token flight over the blaze in a griffon.
    The pilot just may be Canada's greatest patriot, and tip the bird into roll leaving a literal steaming pile of Turd in the inferno.


    Is how you say: Turd happen

    Trudeau's got the better part of four years to do whatever he wants, whenever he wants, and however he wants to do it.
    And there's precious little you, I or anybody else can do about it.
    But I'm sure he'll shape up about 6 months before the next federal election.
    Then all us azzholes will vote for him again, 'cuz admit it, Justin will still be cute and cuddly.

    I was hoping he would show up and do something useful in front of the cameras. Like beat the flames out with his face.
