Since the news of Sophie Grégoire Trudeau’s new relationship broke Tuesday, Canadians have been calling out Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for putting on a sham of a marriage. The Trudeaus announced their separation on August 2, 2023, without giving any details. The two simply asked for privacy to protect the children. Since then, Justin has repeatedly used his children in photo ops.While it is sad for the prime minister to have a broken marriage, there is great concern over the illusion Justin has created of himself as a married man by using the covenant of marriage to stage photo ops.
