justin trudeau outburst

If you are one of those people in the basement shouting at the TV news, you are not alone. That's the good news -- we are legion. The bad news? We are rudderless. Back to the good news -- we can fix that. I guess a lot of Canadians really are ready to be outraged by the outrageous. It's about time.
