Seven years ago a boxing match changed Canadian politics for the worse
I am reminded that today will mark the seventh anniversary of that famous boxing match between Patrick Brazeau and Justin Trudeau. Looking back, it is clear that this event had great significance. It marked a turning point – a turn for the worse – in Canadian politics.
I started writing this piece over a year ago. This is something that’s been on my mind for quite some time. I’m pretty sure it won’t earn me any new friends. If past experience is any guide, I’ll most likely get some pretty nasty abuse from the people I criticize, I think in part because they’re angry anyone would dare leave their movement. I could be wrong, of course. I’d welcome it this time, at any rate.
