After jokey start, Trudeau promises wildfire help

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has received some criticism for his initial handling of the Fort McMurray wildfire but UBC political science professor Richard Johnston believes the damage won’t last long.

“The coverage of Fort McMurray is so wall to wall that almost anything else that gets said in the political realm has been really shoved to the side … I don’t see a major misstep here,” Johnston told Reuters.
