On Thursday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau held a bilateral meeting with Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny in Montreal. The two discussed the relationship between Canada and Ireland, including how the two countries could create more jobs and strengthen economic relations through CETA (the Canadian-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement).

“CETA is proof of what Canadians and Irish can achieve when we work together,” Trudeau posted on Facebook. “Thanks Enda Kenny for your partnership – and welcome to Canada.”

Being May the 4th, Trudeau took the opportunity to let his geekiness coolness show.

Yes, those are C-3PO and R2-D2 socks. He even Snapchatted them…

Trudeau’s expressed his love for Star Wars many, many times in the past.

Let’s start when he was 11 and took his dad, then PM, to see the movie.

The Return of the Jedi was “much more” than he expected.

In September 2012, he hit up Montreal ComicCon…

In 2015 he went to Ottawa ComicCon…

…and said how exciting it was to meet Peter Mayhew, the actor who played Chewbacca. “Just to meet him was extraordinary for me. It’s my childhood right there,” Trudeau said.

His 2015 campaign plane landed in Vancouver as the R2-D2 plane was taking off…

For Halloween in 2015, he dressed up as Han Solo…

…along with Sophie Grégoire who went as Princess Leia.

Then he hosted a private screening of The Force Awakens

…and talked about how “It was a life changing movie.”

And here he is meeting some Star Wars characters.

The Force is definitely strong with this one.
