Contrary to the advice of his father. The Toronto Sun newspaper reminds us that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is the champion in the number of apologies for the various injustices of the distant past.
How sincere is the head of government and how interested is he in attracting the votes of relevant groups of voters, whether they are sex minorities or former students of Indian boarding schools?

Obama also said it was quite fair that various media outlets project different pictures of the world, so the regular Fox News viewer lives in a completely different reality than the New York Times regular reader..
