Canada seems able to set aside partisan bickering during crises. Coronavirus is a big health and economic challenge for any government. So how has Trudeau done?

So far, I would say fairly well. I think he listened to Canadian experts and largely took necessary steps. Yes, hospitals are still underresourced and the economy is postponed. But better to be big as long as things are dialed back as soon as reasonable. We are lucky to have had time to observe other places and to have had some local experience with epidemics.

Still, many challenges lay ahead. Do you folks think he has done okay thus far? Despite delays, decentralized messaging, so many known and unknown concerns?
