Seeds: Justin Trudeau assumed the position of Prime Minister of Canada in November of 2015. Since this, Prime Minister Trudeau has won the hearts of many, and not just for his policies. Since his election, he has announced plans to let in upwards of 25,000 Syrian refugees by the end of March, and he appointed an extremely diverse cabinet, one that would “look like Canada.” For liberals around the world, Prime Minister Trudeau is a dream, and clearly not only because he has sparkly blue eyes.
Core: President Obama and Prime Minister Trudeau met Thursday, March 10, focusing their first official meeting in Washington D.C. on climate change and possible solutions to reduce carbon and methane emissions. Although, the meeting was still relatively casual as President Obama managed to slip in a joke about hockey, and the fact that Prime Minister Trudeau is America’s favorite Justin.
Skin: While their meeting had serious intentions, the internet, as it always does, has made the meeting about the “budding bromance” between the two leaders.
Leaves: Hopefully the lighthearted but hopeful nature of this meeting suggests that Canada and the United States will continue to work together peacefully to enact change. President Trudeau certainly thinks so, “Canada and the U.S. will stand side by side to confront the pressing needs that face not only our two countries, but the entire planet.”
Food For Thought: What do you think of Prime Minister Trudeau? Is he more than a pretty face? Do you think that the government is doing enough to combat climate change?
