OTTAWA -- The Prime Minister's Office is refusing to say precisely when -- or even if -- Justin Trudeau knew he was dealing with an alt-right activist when he denounced her questions about the cost of "illegal immigrants" in Quebec as intolerant and racist.

Nor were members of Conservative rival Andrew Scheer's staff willing to discuss Tuesday whether their leader was aware of the woman's background when he issued a statement late Monday deriding Trudeau's response as dodging a legitimate policy question.

But with such details as close as the nearest iPhone, suggesting otherwise stretches credulity, said Chris Mathers, a former RCMP officer and security consultant who was once part of the detail that protected the prime minister's official residence.
