When Canadians were unsure of whether there was an imminent terror threat, Justin Trudeau was still on vacation.
As I wrote in a Toronto Sun column today, Trudeau was MIA when we needed a leader.
I was in Strathroy, Ontario just two hours after the explosion that resulted in failed terrorist Aaron Driver's death. Residents were scared--as were people from across the country.
While defenders of Trudeau have said that his presence in Strathroy wasn't needed, I think a statement assuring Canadians that we're safe and strong would have gone a long way. This isn't about politics, but rather leadership.
Watch as I explain why his absence from the national response to this was so conspicuous.
