This is the ending part of an article in The CBC News: Kent Hehr has committed the ultimate sin for a Trudeau minister
Hehr destroys all of that. His off-script remarks darken the whole sunny facade, which is supposed to be about caring and smiles and unlimited budgets and hope and hard work. It's about as off-brand as you can get for this government. It's a wonder Trudeau would allow the impression it's tolerated.
I think 'it' means 'this government' and the last sentence means 'It's surprising that Trudeau would allow the bad impression this government has endured." But then it doesn't make sense. Because the sentence should mean that the author is surprised that Trudeau would allow the bad impression this government has opposed."
Am I understanding this wrong?
