The recent brouhaha about Conservative candidate Justina McCaffrey — Should Andrew Scheer fully disown her? Must McCaffrey herself fully denounce her pal Faith Goldy and distance herself from Goldy’s hard right-wing views and past affiliation with white supremacists? — made me think about the nature of friendship.

Liberal Maryam Monsef, Canada’s first Muslim Cabinet minister, thoughtfully re-released on social media Saturday a 2013 video. At the time, the two women were apparently trying to pitch a reality show called A Wedding Dress For Everyone But Me, the “me” being McCaffrey, who is a wedding dress designer.

In it, the two are fairly hideous, albeit not in any white-power way.
