...or did media not pick up on it as much? What's a better headline?

This is weird:

Quote:
For most North Koreans, perceptions of Canada are shaped largely by a popular 62-part film series that left a strange, curiously favourable impression of Canada as a land of sports cars, taekwondo and mild weather — but also a place compromised by South Korean spies.

The propaganda epic is called Nation and Destiny, and was commissioned in the 1990s by the late "Dear Leader" and movie-mad dictator Kim Jong-il.
Quote:
According to South Korea's Yonhap news agency, Nation and Destiny is still shown about 10,000 times a month in cinemas and on pre-tuned state TV channels in North Korea.

Not sure I follow, are you saying that Trudeau should take his cues as a leader from the media?

I'm saying the media picks and chooses the headlines, and what to report. Not the PM. So the possibility they found the original story more interesting than the second is there.

An 11 year old child with an overly vivid imagination? She wouldn't be arrested in Canada but she probably had a "good talking to" from authorities about the trouble she caused.

My apologies, for some reason I thought that she was 17. An 11 year old didn't come up with that idea on her own.

Somewhere in this thread there is a link to a follow-up story in which the RCMP say she did come up with it on her own.

I have more faith in the RCMP than that.

Yeah, but we, along with most Canadians, don't shive a git what it sounds like to those who seek to politicize everything under the sun.
