In Canada, a federal election isn't just about the leaders themselves, but typically we see their spouses and families joining them along the campaign trail and rallying on their behalf. Justin Trudeau's wife was by his side often throughout this past election and now she has spoken for the first time since her husband's re-election. Sophie Grégoire Trudeau's Instagram post is a thank you note for Canada and it's pretty sweet. 

Now that the dust has settled on the election and it has been confirmed that Justin Trudeau and the Liberal's have a minority government, politicians and now their families have taken to social media to express their gratitude and hopes for the future. 

In her post, the First Lady of Canada thanks Canadians for voting Liberal. She writes, "I feel so grateful for the trust you’ve put in the Liberal team and also so full of hope for what’s ahead." 

She goes on to say, "there’s lots more work to do to keep moving our country forward, and I know we’ll get there together. From the bottom of my heart - thank you, Canada!" She then echoes the same message in French. 

The thank-you note was accompanied by a photo of Sophie Grégoire Trudeau and Justin Trudeau smiling and waving to crowds after the win on Monday night. 

This is Sophie Grégoire Trudeau's first Instagram post since the election; however, her husband and the still Prime Minister of Canada was back online a lot earlier. 

Two days ago, Justin Trudeau shared a very similar photo to his own Instagram, simply saying "Forward. Avançons." 

As Canada's very own First Lady, Grégoire Trudeau has quite the following on social media. Her verified account has over 243K followers. While that pales in comparison to her husband's 3.2 million followers, she does have more followers than some of the other party leaders. That being said, as far as we know, she hasn't DMed with Rihanna

Now that Justin Trudeau has been re-elected, we can only expect that Sophie will keep giving us a behind-the-scenes look at Canada's first family on Instagram.
