Fair enough to you and the other two for answering the question directly. It worries me that this sort of attitude offers a charter for increasingly shallow politicians (if that is possible) to make hay because they support certain policies.

But surely you can see the irony of your last comment: Trudeau suggests he is fit to make laws as well.

Of course, all politicians are egotists. If they were fit people for the job they wouldn't want it.
