Justin Trudeau's First Calls After Winning The Election Were To Joe Biden & Kamala Harris

After a minority Liberal government was declared on September 20, Justin Trudeau made two phone calls as Canada's newly re-elected prime minister and both were to U.S. politicians.

Trudeau spoke with U.S. President Joe Biden on September 21 and the American leader offered his congratulations on the re-election. They chatted about the response to COVID-19, collaboration on the fight against climate change, and managing the Canada-U.S. land border.

Trudeau and Biden also said they look forward to staying in touch with each other.

Then on September 22, the prime minister had a phone call with U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris where they talked about Canada-U.S. cooperation, increasing women's participation in the workforce and the close partnership between the two countries.

They also want to meet in person at the "earliest opportunity." Harris has a Canadian connection as she lived and went to school in Montreal.

After Biden was elected president, his first phone call was to Trudeau so it seems the prime minister is keeping up the tradition!

He's back and he's not pulling any punches! Jagmeet Singh's latest TikTok has him taking aim at Justin Trudeau's government for being "all talk no action."

After the throne speech on November 23 where the federal government outlined its plans including one for making housing more affordable, Singh took to TikTok and posted a video of him lipsynching to "Number One Spot" by Ludacris.

If you're wondering what exactly it is that Black Rod does (that's the genuine short version of his name, by the way), he's the person at the beginning of the throne speech who ceremoniously leads the Senate Speaker's parade.
