Justin time: What’s keeping Canada laughing

This is what’s keeping them cheerful in Canada.



  • Mustafa Kandan says:

    I think we will continue to wear masks and maintain physical distance long after this crisis have past. This virus have changed us all in to microbephobes, hypochondriacs and hoarders. The wars brought people within a nation together, viruses divide people. Everyone becomes selfish.

    • Cyril says:

      I think a small percentage of people become selfish – runners who run down the middle of the sidewalk, forcing other walkers out into the street, for example. But most people behave well, even go out of their way to do generous things for others. I will be very happy if people continue to wear masks and maintain 6 feet distance and stop shaking hands once the crisis is past. I was tired of people invading my space before Covid-19.

  • Elizabeth Owen says:

    Very funny thanks.

  • Herbefrt Glass says:

    Fun, but overlong — with the repeated “moistly”. Wish the signers were gyrating, like a true backup group. But thanks, PM & ladies, for making a valuable message enjoyable south of your border as well.

  • Frank says:

    Edited together very well. Light humours.

    Watching Trump on the other hand is hilariously mortifying at the podium (with others crowded on the stage?!?) and tragic.
    He’s the biggest joke of our time. The sad part is hell probably get in again.

    • Saxon Broken says:

      I wouldn’t be so sure Trump will be re-elected. The chance would be lower if those who opposed him had a little more respect for the sense of grievance from those who voted for him (many of which don’t actually like him and would happy to support somebody else if they they felt was listening to them).

  • Jan Mart says:

    Justin, really…has everyone in your group made it safely to Quebec to vacation at the cottage? Your family, advisors, security, drivers, cooks, maids. Are they and you not supposed to be safe at home? Do as I say not as I do?…Poor showing on this one. The masses sit in basement apartments, or highrises without opening windows, or stay in a modest house across the nation wfh parents, kids, all together day after day with no break. I guess the precautions aren’t meant for you? How has this trip flattened the curve?

  • Mary says:

    Not only did Justin go visit wife and kids for Easter during this pandemic …he had the audacity to put pictures on social media….not cool

  • D.Smyth says:

    A mean minded, petty and erroneous comment. I think
    Tr udeau and his team, especially Christina Freeland, are doing a very competent job in an unprecedented eme.rgency. Your comment offended me.But it’s so much easier to criticise than to be constructive..

  • Gaffney Feskoe says:

    I do wish that he would ditch the facial hair.

  • Dorkel Berry says:

    The most sense he’s made to date.

  • Karl says:

    I thought it would be a vid of a minstrel show.
