Conservative Party leader Andrew Scheer dodged a reporter's question and then ran away when asked about The Rebel during a press conference on Monday.
And I can't decide whose behaviour was worse: the reporter or Scheer.
Between the Finance Minister forgetting to declare his French villa to the Ethics Commissioner and Trudeau walking back his tax reforms the Liberals needed a distraction. And the media was all too happy to help.
A Globe and Mail reporter asked Scheer whether he knew that his campaign manager had shared office space at The Rebel – a months old, long dead story.
Scheer turned tail and headed for the hills.
Don't get me wrong. I like Scheer. I want Scheer to succeed and that's why I need him to grow a spine –and fast.
