If it’s Canada Day, it’s time for the federal party leaders to assure us of their patriotism.
First, the Prime Minister.
Second, Thomas Mulcair, who goes with the desk look and manages to use the word “progressive.”
And finally, Justin Trudeau, who likes to be outdoors and eschews neckwear and who manages to include the phrase “hope and hard work.”
Most of the scoring here is subjective, but on the one objective criteria of “Number of Visible Canadian Flags,” Mr. Mulcair wins with two.
