Trudeau tells ministers in mandate letter to be nice to journalists!

The Star's Susan Delacourt got a look at the new PMs mandate letter to ministers. Excerpt from her column about it:
“'Members of the Parliamentary Press Gallery, indeed all journalists in Canada and abroad, are professionals who, by asking necessary questions, contribute in an important way to the democratic process. Your professionalism and engagement with them is essential,' the letter states.
"This is, we’ll remember, a slightly more formal way of saying what Trudeau told a crowd of people booing reporters during the last week of the election campaign. 'Hey! We have respect for journalists in this country,' Trudeau chided unruly Liberals at a campaign stop in Montreal. 'They ask tough questions and they're supposed to. OK?'”
