Canada’s leader was spotted shredding down the slopes of Whistler Blackcomb over the weekend.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was accompanied by his wife, Sophie, and children for a brief family vacation. He arrived in B.C. early ahead of a number of major appearances and meetings scheduled for this week in Vancouver.
On Wednesday morning, he will be delivering a keynote speech to open the GLOBE Conference on sustainability and environmental innovation at the Vancouver Convention Centre. Later in the day, he will also meet with premiers and First Nations leaders.
The following day, Trudeau will host the second First Ministers’ Conference since he was elected into office. And as a matter of fact, this will also be the second First Ministers’ Conference in seven years given that Harper discontinued the tradition for much of his tenure.
Trudeau has a well-known affinity for the West Coast: He was a ski and snowboard instructor at Whistler during the late 1990s; he received his bachelor of education from the University of British Columbia in 1998; he taught drama, French, and math at several Vancouver schools after receiving his UBC degree; and his mother, Margaret Trudeau, is from Vancouver.
