I had no idea that a Canadian Prime Minister had not visited the White House in 2 DECADES! Isn’t that something our PM is supposed to do with our friends to the south?
In any event, Justin Trudeau made the trek to the White House to discuss hockey. Ok, maybe that wasn’t the primary reason for the visit – but it did come up. Here’s what Obama had to say about CANADA’S game.
Could this be considered an act of war!? While watching Obama say these harsh words to the media – I was a little disappointed by our PM’s reaction. The appropriate response would have been to jersey the President and drop the gloves.
Obviously that didn’t happen because, as Canadians, we’re better than that. We’re civil and respectful. That said, Obama should have at least spent 5 minutes in the box for such harsh comments.
Justin Trudeau and his wife were the guests of honor for a State dinner which also showcased other high profile Canadians such as Michael J Fox, Ryan Reynolds and even a white haired Mike Myers!
In all honesty, it is nice to see our two countries getting along and having a few laughs. This is how it should be between Canada and the U.S.
