Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has stirred controversy by blaming Russian propaganda for the Canadian Parliament’s recognition of an individual with Nazi affiliations, Your Content has learned.
Trudeau voiced his concerns, stating the incident was “deeply embarrassing” to the nation’s governing body.
The Canadian Parliament recently faced backlash for paying tribute to an individual later revealed to have links with the Nazi regime. The honor was met with widespread disapproval, as many questioned how such an oversight could have occurred.
