Prime Minister Justin Trudeau held a press conference in Saskatchewan on Monday alongside Premier Scott Moe, at Cowessess First Nation, where yet another lot of unmarked graves were discovered near a former residential school. Many on social media, though, saw the prime minister’s actions as distasteful, after photos of Trudeau kneeling on the unmarked graves, holding a teddy bear, made their way to Twitter. Reaction to the photos often noted how the photos seemed like a big-headed move by Trudeau, by making the event “all about him.” Some accused Trudeau of using the tragedy for his own gain, calling the photo op “disrespectful.” “This is gross, even for Trudeau,” said another. Premier Scott Moe also took photos holding a teddy bear and kneeling on the site of the graves.
