Peter Van Loan shows how not to handle a news conference

I’m not sure why a federal Cabinet Minister would deliberately embarrass himself like this, but Peter Van Loan gave one of the goofiest news conferences in history, and was thoroughly roasted by the media for it. Note to Peter: if you’re not willing to take the questions, don’t go to the media. Very embarrassing, but provides a good example to my students of what not to do.
