We feel another bromance stirring in the lush Irish air.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau recently traveled to Ireland to meet with the new Irish Taoiseach (Prime Minister) Leo Varadkar to discuss trade agreements between Canada and Ireland and the ongoing negotiation of CETA — the free trade agreement between Canada and the European Union.
Varadkar was voted into office in May after the resignation of Enda Kenny. As one of Ireland’s few gay, mixed-race politicians, Varadkar’s leadership affirms Ireland’s modern sense of identity.
From the snapshots of Trudeau’s state visit, it would seem that the two world leaders got off to a smashing start.

We’re here for this bromance. We just hope that Macron understands.
