“For three years we found our home in a refugee camp with little opportunity or hope. Our lives had been forever altered and we dreamed of returning to the lives we love,” reads the Peace by Chocolate website. “When our family was invited into Canada and became full Canadian citizens our dreams came true.”

The video of Trudeau and Speaker Pelosi, shared on the company’s Instagram account, shows the Prime Minister gifting Pelosi with Raptors swag.

He then reaches for the chocolate bar, explaining that “Peace by Chocolate is something Canada is very proud of.”

“Peace by Chocolate?” Speaker Pelosi replies.

“Sounds like an International agreement!”
