Winnipeg Sun - - COMMENT -

Prime Min­is­ter Justin Trudeau was off to some far off coun­try get­ting his pic­ture taken pre­tend­ing to be more im­por­tant than he re­ally is.

He should have been home, hon­our­ing those who gave their lives for our coun­try so that we can have the life that we have today.

I am sure that he could have post­poned any meet­ing for one day to be here for Re­mem­brance Day. Those who had to post­pone their meet­ing with him would have clearly un­der­stood his ab­sence. They may have even re­spected him more for at­tend­ing this day in his coun­try.

Stephen Harper would have never missed this day.

BOB BOYER Ac­tu­ally, in 2012, Harper missed Re­mem­brance Day in Canada — he was in Hong Kong. He was at the same sum­mit Trudeau was over the week­end.
