A few days into Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's trip to India, it seemed like the biggest controversy would be the outfits he wore.
Called "over the top" and "too Indian even for an Indian," the Trudeau family's attire, at one point, would have been the only negative part of the eight-day tour.
But then news broke that a failed assassin was somehow invited to a reception with the prime minister. Whoops!
In the very first episode of "Backbenchers," we take a look at Trudeau's foreign fiasco and its ensuing fallout, as well as Finance Minister Bill Morneau's recent classroom fashion show. (Watch the video above.)
