US Election: Canada’s Deputy PM Congratulated Biden & Harris In The Sweetest Way

Canada’s deputy prime minister has publicly congratulated Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, hours after the duo were reported the U.S. election winners.

In a series of tweets, Deputy PM Chrystia Freeland promised to work "shoulder to shoulder" with the new leaders, especially as both countries tackle the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

She also added "a very personal congratulations" to the new vice president, whose victory Freeland described as “an inspiration to women & girls and to people of colour across our continent.”

Tagging Harris in her message, Freeland said she looked forward to working alongside her, particularly to “crush this global pandemic & to crack more glass ceilings along the way.”

The deputy PM’s comments came just hours after the new vice president delivered her inspiring victory speech.

Speaking on November 7, Harris said, “While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last.”

Harris will be the first female vice president, as well as the first woman of colour in the role.

Freeland also made history in 2020, by becoming Canada’s first-ever female finance minister.
