As I guess it is for most kids, in Grade 3, it was always a real treat to visit my dad at work. As on previous visits, this particular occasion included a lunch at the parliamentary restaurant, which always seemed terribly important and full of serious people that I didn't recognize. But at 8, I was becoming politically aware. And I recognized one whom I knew to be one of my father's chief rivals. Thinking of pleasing my father, I told a joke about him. A generic, silly little grade school thing. My father looked at me sternly, with that look I would learn to know so well. And said: Justin, [in translation] we never attack the individual. We can be in total disagreement with someone, without denigrating them as a consequence, and, saying that, he stood up, took me by the hand and brought me over to introduce me to this man. - From Prime Minister Justin Trudeau eulogy at his father’s funeral #canadaday🇨🇦 #communityovercompetition #primeministerjustintrudeau #justintrudeau #pierretrudeau #loveoverhate #youtharethefuture #youth #canada
