Which brings me to Jody Wilson-Raybould, the gift that keeps on giving. Breaking the norm is spreading. She just pulled a Trump move.

The former Liberal MP, dropped as attorney-general and minister of justice and expelled from the Liberal caucus in the spring, is now an Independent. She will have to move out of her ministerial suite with private washroom, which she kept even after she was no longer in cabinet.

But there is a new government and a new cabinet including Dan Vandal, a Métis MP from Winnipeg who will be minister of northern affairs, a huge job in this huge country. He has been assigned that ministerial suite.

Wilson-Raybould won't move. She suggests giving up part of the suite, leaving Vandal without a full set of ministerial offices, but she herself is staying put.
