In an election focused on families, an ‘implicit tax’ on parents is under the radar

Do you think the government should make it easier for parents to work part-time while on leave?

Others who attended the 2001 'Arabian Nights'-themed party where Justin Trudeau was pictured in brownface say it wasn't meant to offend.

Instead of maybe going on & on about something that happened 20 yrs ago, you should ask all the political leaders what their anti racism plan is.
