PM Justin Trudeau struggled to attach the Canadian flag to the Canadian embassy during a trip to Ukraine.
In what should have been a good photo op, video reveals Trudeau and several members of the Liberal cabinet bumbling around as they attempted to attach a Canadian flag to a pole, ultimately requiring additional assistance.
You’d think that all that time spent as a teacher in public education would have prepared Trudeau for the task, but it appears that he deemed the procedure unworthy of learning.
If Mr. Trudeau is looking for lessons on how to raise our nation’s flag, a custodian at a local public school can likely provide the service — for a fee.
The little stunt came during an unannounced trip to Ukraine — likely unannounced because Trudeau is protested everywhere he goes — wherein he announced that he was giving Ukraine even more money, despite already depleting Canada’s weapons stores.
“Today, I’m announcing more military assistance, drone cameras, satellite imagery, small arms, ammunition and other support, including funding for demining operations,” Trudeau said.
He added that “[Canada’s] bringing forward new sanctions on 40 Russian individuals and five entities, oligarchs and close associates of the regime in the defence sector, all of them complicit in Putin’s war.”
During a press conference with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Trudeau also took the opportunity to condemn Vladimir Putin, further alienating Canada on behalf of our foreign ally.
“It is clear that Vladimir Putin is responsible for heinous war crimes. There must be accountability,” Trudeau said. “Canada will support Ukraine as you seek justice for your people that Russia is killing and brutalizing.”
