During the press conference, one of the reporters reminded Trudeau that he should respond both in French and English to her question, and she was a bit snotty about it. That is what prompted my comment.

That’s exactly what happens in the UN with Ukraine and Russia. The Ukraine revolutionists spoke only in Ukrainian during the sessions and demanded translators even though everyone understood and spoke Russian.
