– Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says now that the "peoplekind" comment
he made at a townhall last week that has since been picked up globally,
was "a dumb joke."
all know that I don’t necessarily have the best of track records on
jokes. I made a dumb joke a few days ago that seems to have gone a
little viral… on the 'peoplekind' comment," Trudeau told reporters
outside of the Liberal caucus meeting on Parliament Hill Wednesday.
week at a town hall event in Edmonton, a woman was asking Trudeau about
support for religious charitable organizations and commented that
maternal love would change the future of mankind.
before she had finished speaking, Trudeau said "we like to say
peoplekind, not necessarily mankind. It's more inclusive."
morning, Trudeau said while it "played well" in the room, that "out of
context, it doesn't play so well and it’s a little reminder to me that
I shouldn’t be making jokes even when I think they’re funny," he said.
