erm ... confused ... what's the problem with the title?? How is it disrespectful?
Perhaps construed as a tad on the unprofessional side ... but how would that piss off the PM?

Let me ask you this, when you talk to a police officer, do you refer to them using street vernacular ?
I'd like to help You OUT,
Which way did You come in??

Respect if earned is given. There has been nothing produced by that pretty boy that deserves respect, therefore leader of the county or not, I will not give him that respect. You're cadet story is irrelevant.

? There's no correlation between a citizen speaking to a police officer and a reporter's comment in an article.

Have you ever been to a political rally and heard a heckler ? Ever seen what goes on in the House of Commons?

If a politician can't handle a reporter's comments they're in the wrong business.

And actually some people do use street language with police. The rule is that "the pen is mightier than the sword", trust me it is.

If I am speaking to an officer I would certainly call him sir. I won't argue with the police be they right or wrong, I would argue my case with a judge, thats what their there for. I would even call our current PM sir if I was speaking with him. But also would not pull punches when telling him what I think of his policies. It is possible to point out people's mistakes without being disrespectful.
I still do not think that reporters should be easy on him because he is the PM. In my mind that is just wrong. But they must also make sure they have all the facts straight and be sure what they are saying is the truth, good bad or indifferent.

The cadet story is very relevant because it provides context to why the OP is saying what he says.

It seems that respect may be something that is "earned" by some only by being from a certain party.
While I did not vote for the current PM, I have respect for the position of PM and, while not speaking for the OP, I believe that is where he is coming from.

I felt the same way when a certain female poster used to say horrible things about our female premier, at the time. Ironically, if someone would have said these same things about any other female, there would be cries of "body-shaming" or "slut-shaming"
from this same poster. However, she used this exact tactic against the premier and I found the lack of decorum, in that case, to be offensive.....not in a puritanical way, but in a way that totally minimized and undermined everything she said as it came from a position of personal hatred. Your "pretty boy" post starts to go down the same path.
Yeah, I have heard women from around the world say "I love your PM because he's so good looking and young".......who cares? It garners positive attention for Canada.....better than what they say about a certain leader to the south of us.

What I was getting at is some of us grew up in a time where certain people got respect.
And I realize it's not like that for all anymore..
But our personal philosophies always fuel our replies on here. We have differences.
Example, say I meet someone from say an outlaw motorcycle club. I am respectful till given a reason not to be.
And some on here construe that as being an outlaw bike club lover ! but to me it's just that I don't dislike people , til I have been given a reason to dislike someone. But I treat all like that including police officers or people on the street.

And then there are folks on here that if you look like a ×××××× or an ××××××, or a ×××, they hate you without even interacting with the person. It's who they are .

The reporter by addressing the public figure like that , can become less liked by some people because of it.
I'd like to help You OUT,
Which way did You come in??

This whole hate thing is getting tiring. One can strongly dislike a persons ideologies or appearance but not hate them. Stereotypes exist for a reason.

Depending on the police officer, yes ... but that could possibly be because I have a few friends who are officers and understand they're real people ... but again: it's situational ... as in: contextual.

So am I to understand that "street vernacular" is "disrespectful"? ... You do understand that "bromance" is a term of endearment, aye? So endearment is disrespectful?

May I offer a counter-point ... of the options to properly address the Prime Minister, "PM" is not one of them. Although "PM" is obviously an abbreviation, it is not one of the official forms of address. Now, is this splitting hairs? Yup, but then again so is this thread :D
But again: Context. The news article was not directed towards the Prime Minister.

Sorry, this just screams of "Kids these days!! Back in my day ..." . Of all the people to be concerned with "current slang", I highly doubt Trudeau is anywhere near the list.
Crikey, even do a Google News search for "Trudeau bromance" and see all the high-profile news sites using similar terminology ... so it is, in fact, not a "local media" issue at all ... in fact, if anything, the concern is that it's a typo for "bromance".
