Justin Trudeau responded to the child separation issue that’s happening at the US/Mexico border.
“What’s going on in the United States is wrong. I cannot image what the families are going through.This is not how we do things in Canada.”

But report say yes, that’s actually how Canada does it.
(CBC) Dozens of children who are Canadian citizens have been held in immigration detention centres in conditions that can cause physical and psychological harm, according to a new report.
The study, called “Invisible Citizens: Canadian Children in Immigration Detention,” was produced by the International Human Rights Program at the University of Toronto’s faculty of law and released today during a news conference on Parliament Hill.
Donald Trump also signed this executive order which took Canadian media 4 hours to report.

So given all this, we can only assume Trudeau had a little too much to drink when talking to reporters.
