Justin Trudeau Hung Out With Alphonso Davies Ahead Of Canada's Massive Game Vs. Mexico

He's predominantly known for being a hockey fan, but Justin Trudeau is hopping on the soccer bandwagon ahead of Canada's game against Mexico on Tuesday, November 16.

The PM took time on November 15 to meet the team during a training session and hang out with superstar Alphonso Davies ahead of the clash, which could help Canada qualify for the 2022 World Cup.

Davies has made a name for himself in Europe as one of the world's most talented young soccer players.

"It was a great honour and privilege to meet Prime Minister @JustinTrudeau today," Davies wrote on Twitter. "We will do our best to make the country proud and unite all Canadians tomorrow night through the beautiful game."

After securing a win against Costa Rica on Friday, November 12, Canada's game against Mexico is huge. Both teams sit close to the top of their World Cup qualification group, and while there are still lots of games to go, a Canadian win could see them go to the top of the group and set them up well for their last six qualifying games.

"Let me tell you — after the win on Friday and ahead of tomorrow's game, there was a whole lot of energy on the field when I met the Canada men's national soccer team today," Justin Trudeau wrote in an Instagram post. "@CanadaSoccer: You've got this."

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.

Parliament is officially in session as of Monday, November 22, and Canada's Usher of the Black Rod had a very important part to play in the ceremony.

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.
