A federal Conservative Party candidate attempting to poke fun at Justin Trudeau’s comment about using “drink box water bottles” has had a difficult time getting her joke to land on social media.
- Trudeau gets tongue-tied when asked how his family is cutting out plastic waste (VIDEO)
- Andrew Scheer says deaths of Indigenous women and girls is not genocide
- Jagmeet Singh promises to cap costs for cheaper cell, internet prices
The Prime Minister told reporters that his family has “recently switched to drinking water bottles out of…water out of when we have uh bottles out of uh plastic, sorry, away from plastic towards uh paper — like drink box water bottles sort of things.”

On Wednesday, Sarah Fischer, the Conservative candidate in the Toronto electoral district of Don Valley North, decided to post a video making fun of drinking out of “box water bottles.”
The video shows Fischer attempting to drink water out of a cardboard box. “No, doesn’t work,” she says looking into the camera as she gets soaked with water.
“I tried it… those ‘drink box water bottles’ err paper box water things just don’t work,” wrote Fischer in the caption.

But many were quick to point to Fischer out that in this day and age water is sold in drink boxes.
This is real and used to be boxed and sold in Calgary. pic.twitter.com/bozbBBtC8U

My local grocery store sells water in tetra-pack boxes (the same type of boxes juice is often sold in). It’s a real thing.
