Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau took part in a Quora session on Monday night.
Quora sessions are online events dedicated to a famous person. Quora users were given a chance to ask questions and a few of them are answered by the invited celebrity.
Here are some of the answers given by Justin Trudeau on Quora. And wait, as I mentioned in the headline, there's something interesting about Chandler Bing as well.
It was a surprise for all of us when Mathew Perry told the world about his school fights with Justin Trudeau. Trudeau then offered a rematch and it certainly had an element of laughter with it. Perry played a classic Chandler card and passed the offer citing a whole army behind Mr. Prime Minister. On being asked about the rematch, Trudeau said it's not going to happen as now he has some very capable folks in his corner. He also said that he is 5 years retired now and don't have time to train for another match given he is running the country now.
Mathew Perry has played Chandler Muriel Bing, a fictional character from NBC sitcom Friends.
The question asked to him was, "What should world leaders be doing to support feminism in their countries and around the world?"
Trudeau said, "Leaders around the world should ensure that they encourage the full participation of women in society by enacting laws and regulations that facilitate this, or at the very least that do not pose an obstacle to this." (There are 18 nations where women cannot get a job without their husband's permission)
Justin Trudeau said he has been a voracious reader. He expressed his admiration for Stephen King, Neal Stephenson, and Tad Williams. He said he liked La part de l'autre by Eric-Emmanuel Schmidt, and Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. He said his favorite TV series is, The Leftovers, and he is excited for upcoming season 3.
Trudeau said, "Overall, in regards to how I manage this relationship, I know that Canadians expect two things from me as PM. First, that I stand up for the values and principles that Canadians hold dear: things like equality, rights, openness, and compassion. And second, that I ensure good jobs and economic opportunities for Canadians, and that means building on the strong relationship while creating new successes with US. I will stay focused on doing both those things."
He said his focus should be on doing the best job he can for the Canadians. Trudeau said perhaps he might have done some things in a different manner but he knows he is making best possible efforts on every decision. He said he has long-term interests of Canadians in his mind.
