The young politician and leader of the Liberal Party became the 23rd Prime Minister of Canada on November 4th, 2015.
He celebrated the first day of Ramadan on Monday June 6th with his Muslim colleagues, who gathered together around the same table to break the fast.
The night before, Trudeau wished a happy Ramadan to the Canadian Muslim community and to Muslims everywhere.
“During Ramadan, Muslims fast from sunrise until sunset in order to exercise their patience, getting closer to God and give charity to the poorest ones,” said Trudeau.
“Cultural diversity in Canada is one of our biggest strengths, and a source of pride to all of us,” he added.
In social media, numerous Canadians have expressed their support with Trudeau, spreading messages of tolerance and unity.
