We’re certain that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau does more than just attend pride parades while wearing Ramadan-themed socks and build pillow forts in his office — it just seems that way to those of us in the States.
And while the U.S. was struggling to work out a tax reform plan and respond to another missile launch by North Korea, Trudeau was again up to some serious — and seriously woke — business.

As President Trump continues to watch the courts eat away at his ban on transgender troops, Trudeau was offering a formal apology to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and two-spirit Canadians who had suffered oppression under any of the government’s federal programs.

Cue all the posts from folks who murmured about moving to Canada if Trump were to win, asking if Trudeau could be our president too.
Can you please come be the leader of our country, too?

You are the kind of leader that the rest of the world needs to follow. DJT can only lead us to ruin. Please pray for us.

Have we ever apologized to LGBTQ, blacks or our Native Americans? Have we ever admitted that we were wrong? Have we ever admitted that we committed atrocities against them? Have we ever said we are sorry and we will never let this happen again? We should.

Thank you, sir, for demonstrating that there are still good men and good leaders who speak with wisdom and heart.

Thank you Mr. Trudeau. I for one see empathy and kindness as a strength. Canada must lead the world in human rights and freedoms, and must insist on moving forward.

To my Canadian friends – can you remind me what it’s like to have a real leader? It’s been almost a year and I’ve forgotten 🙁

@realDonaldTrump Bravo. This is how progressive, advanced, civilized people act. If only we had this kind of leader in the states…
