OTTAWA—According to numerous media reports this past week, Gerald Butts is back providing advice to the prime minister and the Liberal Party. That this happening is really a shock to no one and probably most welcomed by Justin Trudeau. Butts seems to be a major part of his mojo. How others in the organization feel and those in caucus hasn’t publicly leaked out yet, but I am sure it will in due course. For as much as the prime minister values Butts, there were many Liberals who were happy to see him go.
