Justin Trudeau’s Anniversary in Japan a Selfish Decision or a Great Example?

As soon as I heard this story, I knew someone was going to complain about it.

Recently, Justin Trudeau had announced that during his visit to Japan for the G7 summit he would be taking a day to celebrate his anniversary with his wife Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau.

Many critics have expressed concern about this decision, with many claiming that this would be a waste of taxpayers money.

Now although Trudeau has said that he would be financing the celebration with his personal finances, his staff (which he has not stated how many he brought) will be idle for one day. That definitely increases the cost of the trip.

On the other side of the coin, many are praising this decision as a great example of work-life balance. Not only is it important to make sure you commemorate important events, as some are saying, but it shows that the Prime Minister is still holding his values of family and marriage very high.

So the question is whether this decision is a selfish decision that is going to waste taxpayers money, or whether it’s an example set by the Canadian leader on having a good work-life balance. There is merit in both arguments so make sure you vote in the poll below!

    Balance, well too bad that doesn’t work for most normal Canadians. WE have to work two jobs to make ends meet. And care for our own children and if there is a babysitter/Nanny it’s at our expense not that of the Canadian people. WE can’t travel to Japan and spend time there because we think we are the First Lady(no such thing in Canada) maybe she should stay home and look after her own children instead of globe trotting with him.
