LOOK: Justin Trudeau brings three-year-old son to Parliament
Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau is used to being in the spotlight. He has gained worldwide popularity for his charming looks and liberal statements, such as declaring Canada open to refugees.
But for a day in office, all eyes were on his youngest son, when the 45-year-old father of three decided to take him to work.
A recent post on Trudeau’s Facebook page showed little Hadrien enjoying the day in Dad’s Parliament office in Ottawa. He ran through the halls with Dad, greeted the press, and even sat at the prime minister’s chair with smartphone in hand—we’re not sure if he was on a conference call or playing a mobile game.
Netizens cooed at Hadrien, with some asking if he could take over the White House, claiming that the toddler would be more capable in running the country than the United States’ current head of state.
This is not the first time Trudeau has taken his kids to work. Before his first day at office in 2015, he toured eldest children Ella-Grace and Xavier in an interview with CBC News.
Trudeau has his own childhood memories of Parliament, since his father Pierre was prime minister for two terms from 1968 to 1979. He admitted to cartwheeling through the office with his younger brothers Sasha and Michel. JB
