Sun upset that P.M. Trudeau allowed only VICE along to historic First Nations visit

The Sun's parliamentary bureau chief writes David Akin writes:
"Trudeau made what is an unequivocally historic visit to a First Nations community in crisis. The people of Shoal Lake 40 have been living under a boil-water advisory for 17 years. They've pleaded with one federal government after another for financial help to build the infrastructure for clean drinking water.
"But no Canadian news organization was permitted to document this historic encounter on the reserve that straddles Ontario and Manitoba.
The Trudeau PMO permitted only a crew from Vice Media, the New York-based company which is expanding in Canada, to record the visit."
