Yeah, I assumed they were planned and coordinated. (And thanks to GT for the little treat!)
I only mentioned the possibly shortened time schedules in passing because I’m obsessive (witness this note), and thought both production windows might have shortened since the time I picked up my old information. By the way, that information dates from some time when Trudeau (or his syndicate, I suppose) was able to convince the papers that ran him to make a short-notice substitution for timely topicality, maybe related also to tone. Don’t recall what the event was, though.
