Politics and 'pillow talk': On the campaign trail with Canada's political spouses

  Politics and 'pillow talk': On the campaign trail with Canada's political spouses It's no picnic being married to a federal party leader in the middle of a closely fought election campaign. It's weeks of whistle stop travel, jet lag and anxiety, sometimes with kids in tow. But while it's easy to view campaigning leaders' partners as political props, tasked with smiling and waving through one familiar stump speech after another, they actually play a lot of other roles — as door-knockers, volunteer recruiters and unofficial advisers.And when the campaign trail gets particularly taxing, they're the ones reminding the leaders that they're more than the sum of their opponents' Twitter insults.

Sophie Grégoire Trudeau has always been outspoken about feminism and women in politics. In a recent interview, she shared her thoughts on women having to deal with societal structures. She also shared her thoughts on how it feels when people call her husband, the Prime Minister, a fake feminist. Apparently, Grégoire Trudeau thinks it is an untrue claim.

"I kind of laugh it off. If they only knew," Grégoire Trudeau said while speaking with Burnaby Now. "The criticism is always there in politics. When I go out and meet people, that's not what I hear at all."

Grégoire Trudeau also noted that most people who know her husband would also be familiar with his values. "The more harsh winds come your way, the more opportunities you get to show what you're made of and who you are," she told Burnaby Now.

  Obama isn't interfering in Canada's election, but why did he speak up at all? Analysis Barack Obama’s surprise endorsement of Justin Trudeau Wednesday wasn’t illegal, not outside the farthest reaches of a far right fantasyland. It wasn’t election interference, either, not in the way the term has come to be used since the last U.S. campaign. To compare Obama, a private citizen, expressing his views on the politics of another country, to the massive, coordinated campaign of misinformation, voter suppression, hacking and leaks undertaken by Vladimir Putin’s Russia in 2016 would be cynical, stupid or just outright delusional. There is no credible comparison.

I kind of laugh it off in disbelief, but he shows me on his iPhone camera. I thought it would be a fun idea to put it in the mop bucket of my friend who was working on a patient floor. I would call her about five minutes later and it would be the perfect prank.

Justin Trudeau has faced accusations in the past for being a fake feminist. A September 23 poll found that only 24 percent of Canadian women believe Trudeau to be a feminist. Similarly, Justin Trudeau was called a fake feminist on Twitter in March 2019 after his tweet on International Women's Day.
