Canada’s Prime Minister made history on Monday evening…
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stopped by the Fountainhead Pub in Vancouver’s West End early Monday evening to help kick off Pride Week in the city. He is the first sitting Canadian Prime Minister to visit a gay bar.
Trudeau stopped by the Davie Street gay bar to enjoy a beer and spent about 15 minutes talking to people, shaking hands and taking photos with applauding patrons.
