Justin Trudeau has faced considerable criticism that his position on the Islamic State is riskily pacifistic. He could have used the moment to reset and tack a line closer to that of the government when it comes to combatting any possible terror risk. In choosing not to do that, he showed mettle, a commitment to his world view, whether you agree with it or not.You mean to say that in the face of a jihadi attacking Parliament Hill and the murder of two Canadian soldiers in the space of three days Justin chose to stick to his jihad-denial default setting?
Bruce calls that's "mettle."
I call it mental.
