In 2011, one of the turning points in Canada's federal election campaign (at least in determining which party would form the Official Opposition) came when voters learned about Michael Ignatieff's refusal to show up for work in the House of Commons.
One might have expected the Libs' next leader to avoid leaving himself open to the same criticism. One would have been wrong.
But tonight, we may have seen Justin Trudeau's answer to the same point in 2015:
"Of course I don't show up to Parliament. Why bother when my party can't remember what it's supposed to do there anyway?"
