Canada’s pre-eminent fashion commentators were aflutter about the Trudeaus’ interview in Vogue. (Andrew Coyne — surely the Anna Wintour of the conservative commentariat — gives some great quotes in the piece.) The Ottawa Citizen’s national affairs correspondent, Glen McGregor, tweeted that pretty lady pictures make girls sad, Sophie, and dresses are French and expensive, and Why, Justin, why not me? plus, they should have pretended to be humble beggars. At least the Ottawa Sun’s David Akin bravely admits his failings as a human in journalism, “this is the first time I’ve ever read an article published by Vogue.” One wonders if they’ll cancel their subscriptions.
