The Trudeau vs. Brazeau fight has produced a lot of commentary about the fight and fighters, but also about the state of politics itself.
For me, two stories stand out in particular:
In one corner, Warren Kinsella's very accurate description of what politics is - a bloodsport.
In the other, Andrew Potter's thoughtful take on what, at its best, politics can be - an Honourable profession.
It's our society - it's up to us to decide which approach we want. It'll take courage, sportsmanship and mutual respect to build the kind of society we tell ourselves we aspire to - the only question is, are we up to the challenge?
