Days after asking for privacy for his family following his separation from Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, Justin Trudeau posted a pink-clad photo of him and his son at a Barbie screening, with the captain that they are “Team Barbie.” Is this Trudeau letting his inner Barbie shine or an elaborate trolling to invite criticism from the right? True North’s Andrew Lawton weighs in on this, as well as the Conservatives’ new ad promoting Pierre Poilievre as a family man.

Also, the same news publishers who demanded compensation from Facebook for “stealing” their content have now filed a complaint with the Competition Bureau over Facebook’s decision to block news content.

Plus, former finance minister Joe Oliver joins the show to discuss the “climate catastrophism” dominating the political and media discourse about the environment and energy sector.
