“I don’t want to be engaged”

Sounds like that Newfoundland and Labrador government’s social media advisory train is off the track. First, opposition Gerry Rogers member was kicked out of the house because she would not apologize to Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Kathy Dunderdale for someone else’s Facebook posts on the group Kathy Dunderdale must GO!!!.

Pretty Man and the Social Clan

Now that the dust has settled from the coronation of Justin Trudeau as the new leader of the Liberal Party of Canada, it will be interesting if the Trudeau team can capitalize on the interest surrounding the new leader that is buzzing on social media.
