trudeau nannies

"Unbelievable sense of entitlement."
Trudeau responded that he has different "family requirements" than his predecessor.
As both a taxpayer and a stay-at-home mother, I am upset with the Trudeaus on so many levels. Not only is the Prime Minister clearly a hypocrite, but the fact that his wife (who seemingly does not hold a full-time job) requires not one, but two nannies is offensive no matter your political stripe.
This is why people hate politicians. No, not Trudeau. The Conservatives using this nannygate non-scandal against him as a cheap political ploy to puncture his post-election popularity. The accusation of hypocrisy over government-paid nannies to help with the Prime Minister's three young children feels petty and penny-ante. But as a parent, it's also incredibly insulting because of what it reveals about the lack of value and importance that these people put in childcare.
Rona Ambrose says the new prime minister should cover the costs out of his own pockets.
