G&M Reporter on Trudeau: “Why…he’s just like Gandhi!”

Seen on the front page of the Globe and Mail web site:

G&M - Trudeau-Gandhi-(cropped)-2015-10-07

Yeah, disambiguation be damned. The Globe and Mail reporters/editorialists, and editors responsible for this junk journalism are justinunpluggedmore than happy to dupe the readers (whom they so respect!) and have them believe theMahatma_Gandhi supposedly “uncanny” comparison they speak of is between Justin Trudeau and the famous Gandhis that we all know from grade school – Indira Gandhi (it’s not); and the even more famous and much-revered Mahatma Gandhi (wrong again). And no, it’s not even Rajiv.

Oh! Sorry! Did you think we meant Mahatma Gandhi? OOPS! 

It’s actually about the “uncanny” comparison to a virtual unknown in most of non-East-Indian Canada – a Rahul Gandhi, who’s sole claim to fame is that he is related to Indira Gandhi, and who bears no familial relation whatsoever to the one they really wanted you to think of – Mahatma Gandhi.
