Justin Trudeau demands apology from Pope Francis

in Canada by

Seems like the Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau finds himself surrounded by controversy daily, this time asking the pope for an apology. 

Justin Trudeau says he told Pope Francis it’s important for all Canadians to move forward with reconciliation, and that the pontiff could help by issuing an apology for the role the Catholic Church played in residential schools.

The prime minister says the Pope appeared to be open to it, noting that his entire life has been dedicated to supporting marginalized people in the world.

Following his visit to Vatican City, Trudeau says Pope Francis looked forward to working with the prime minister and the Canadian bishops on finding a way forward.

Has Trudeau ever asked a Canadian Inam hate preacher to apologize? I think that should be next step.
