Ottawa Snow In April Prompts Political Blame Game

As a farewell to Ontario, April gave the province one last bout of snow in Ottawa and it resulted in an amusing blame game among politicians.

The forecast for April 30 in Canada's capital city called for rain, turning into some snow later in the evening as temperatures dipped below freezing, and it was not wrong.

The humourous exchange started when columnist Susan Delacourt tweeted that she didn't know who was to blame for the snow falling in Ottawa on April 30.

That was quickly followed up by a tweet from Ottawa's mayor, Jim Watson, who instead pointed a finger at Trudeau, saying "weather is a federal responsibility."

This prompted a reply from the prime minister himself, who simply said "no comment." He then tagged Jonathan Wilkinson, Canada's minister of environment and climate change.

The minister also refused to take responsibility for the weather, saying, "I don't recall this being in my mandate letter."

Meanwhile, across the city, Minister of Infrastructure Catherine McKenna had a creative solution for dealing with the snow — by ignoring it altogether.
