I suppose that it was this photo of Jody Wilson-Raybould and Jane Philpott holding court at the Chateau Laurier, that finally tipped off the media.
Made some of them realize that the two women were carefully orchestrating events to keep the fake scandal in the news.
And that, as Susan Delacourt says, it's a well organized campaign.

It seems like we've been waiting forever. But the signal was finally spotted.
The caped crusader jumped into his batmobile, and headed for the White House, where the Penguin was in a panic.
And now we can finally say it.
In the seven weeks since the fake scandal erupted, the MSM's chosen role has been to act as its giddy cheerleaders.
But now some are starting to notice that Jody Wilson-Rabould and Jane Philpott seem to be playing some kind of weird game.
And like most Canadians some are starting to say enough is enough.
After a voting marathon that ran non-stop for more than 30 hours the Con filibuster ended early this morning.
It failed to achieve its objective of forcing the Liberals to allow Jody Wilson-Rabould to speak "her truth" again, which was absurd to begin with since experts have testified she can say what she wants in the House of Commons anytime she wants.
But it did cost taxpayers at least $1.5 million dollars, it did get some really bad reviews.
And it did make Andrew Scheer look like a liar. Again.

I've been trying very hard to ignore Jody Wilson-Raybould and her best buddy Jane Philpott, because like most Canadians I'm sick to death of the fake scandal.
Which in my opinion has now reached such a level of absurdity, it's starting to resemble an episode of mass psychosis.
I should add that I've also done my best to ignore the persistent rumour that the two women are involved in some kind of bizarre plot to topple Justin Trudeau, and make Wilson-Raybould Prime Minister.
For I thought that was not just absurd, it was laughable.
And then I saw this.
As you know Andrew Scheer is desperate to try to keep the fake scandal going, to try to make Canadians forget that he has been exposed as a far-right extremist.
So he came up with the idea of a filibuster to try to force the Liberals to allow Jody Wilson-Raybould to tell the justice committee even more of "her truth." *Groan.*
With the absurd slogan "let her speak and we will let you sleep."
But unfortunately for Scheer and his Cons, the filibuster is backfiring badly, and making them look even more unfit to ever form a government.

For a while it looked like it would be like any other Budget Day in Canada. With the finance minister Bill Morneau posing proudly with his billion dollar baby.
And when I skimmed through the budget document later on it seemed like a pretty good one.
But Andrew Scheer was furious because the Liberals on the justice committee had rejected his demand that Jody Wilson-Raybould be brought back for even more testimony on the fake scandal.
And when Morneau tried to deliver his budget speech in the Commons this is what happened.

For most of the last 48 hours since he heard about the monstrous massacre in Christchurch, Justin Trudeau managed to hold his true feelings in check.
He was quiet and gentle as he visited a mosque to express his solidarity with the Muslim community, and listen to what young people had to say about building a safer and more inclusive society.
But yesterday in the House of Commons he finally let his true feelings show.
About two years ago I predicted that if or when Jason Kenney became Premier of Alberta he would eventually try to get that province to separate from Canada.
And two years later, with Alberta still seething with resentment over low oil prices, not enough pipelines, and too many Muslims, I'm even more convinced than ever that will happen.
Unless of course Kenney's rube party falls apart and/or he goes to prison.
But who knew most of the west might follow the cowboy province out of confederation?

For more than two years I have been trying to warn Canadians that Andrew Scheer is a leader like no other this country has ever known.
A far-right ideologue who is a mortal threat to the Canada we know and love.
But because my voice is a small and humble one, and I live in a country where so many are so provincial and ignorant of what's happening in other parts of the world, my warnings have always fallen on deaf ears.
Even as a fascist darkness engulfs us.
