Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau honours Nazi veteran in Parliament

Speaker of Canada’s House of Commons issues apology amid outrage

Ottawa (Canada) – Ukrainian President Zelenskyy recently visited Canada and has been in the country for the past week. He was present as the chief guest in the Parliament of Canada (House of Commons) on 24th September. In his presence, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau honoured a Nazi veteran officer who fought in World War II by giving him a standing ovation. This led opposition leader Pierre Poilievre to criticise Trudeau. Poilievre tweeted, ‘Justin Trudeau’s party had arranged for the Nazi veteran to be recognised on the floor of the House of Commons during the visit of the Ukrainian President. This is an appalling error in judgment on the part of Justin Trudeau, whose personal protocol office is responsible for arranging and vetting all guests and programming for state visits of this kind. Following the public backlash caused in the country due to this incident, Speaker of Canada’s House of Commons, Anthony Rota, issued an apology for the Jewish community in the country and around the world.

Editorial Perspective

Justin Trudeau is the only Prime Minister in the world who openly supports and honours Nazis, Khalistanis, gangsters, etc.
