CBC/Radio-Canada journalists treat Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau as “their shiny little pony,” said Marjory LeBreton, the Conservative government’s leader in the Senate. During a debate in the Senate Tuesday, LeBreton criticized CBC reporter Terry Milewski for a question he posed to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, asking about the of the Prime Minister’s Office and the leaking of files about Trudeau’s history of collecting speaking fees for appearing at charitable events. LeBreton said the question was not related to more important issues such as Harper’s appearance at a G8 summit this week. “The Prime Minister is in Northern Ireland at the wrap-up of the G8, and our public broadcaster, so concerned about their new little star, asks a question—not about the trade talks; not about the serious situation in Syria; not about the dynamics of the G8 … Oh no; Terry Milewski had to ask the Prime Minister about someone insulting their shiny little pony, Justin Trudeau,” LeBreton said, according to a Senate transcript. “These are the kinds of questions we get from our so-called national media travelling to a world event where world leaders are present," she said.
