It’s going to be a long time before Trudeau's disastrous trip to India works its way out of our collective consciousness.
Besides the international scandal caused by Trudeau inviting a convicted attempted murderer, Sikh separatist for supper, there was the secondary scandal of him blaming the invite on the Indians themselves.
And then there was the mockery.
We were an international laughing stock due to Trudeau's bizarre behaviour with impromptu dance performances, ridiculous prayer hands, and marauding about the country in costumes.
Every single Trudeau was consistently dressed in Bollywood style costumes for much of the trip.
It was so strange and over-the-top that Bollywood actors remarked that Trudeau was more Bollywood than Bollywood!
I wanted to know who was involved in planning the outfits, and whose idea this was. Who selected the clothes? And more importantly, did anybody at any point raise objections or was it the work of a bunch of Yes Men, letting our impulsive prime minister embarrass us?
On March 31st, after the Trudeaus got home, I asked the government:
“to provide copies of all documents regarding the planning for the Prime Minister's trip to India in February 2018 including anything related to clothing and wardrobe for the Prime Minister and his family and any cost incurred to purchase the clothing for the trip since October 1st 2017”
I suspect acting so ridiculous wasn't a cheap thing to do, and I’d love to tell you what I found out, but I can't. Watch as I explain why.
It seems it’s going to take as long for the government to answer my questions as it will for our collective annoyance at the behaviour of our adolescent PM to wane from our memory.
And that's really what the bureaucrats and Trudeau are counting on.
