Was he right?

Yes he was, says Dr. Lucien Hardy. Hardy, a faculty member at Perimeter, explained to Canada's Global News that "[Trudeau] got it spot on," adding "I have never seen a prime minister attempt anything like that. He did a pretty good job of explaining it."


In fact, Trudeau is no stranger to science, having studied engineering  at l'École Polytechnique de Montréal before quitting the program after several years.

Speaking about the $50 million investment in Perimeter, set to be allocated out over five years, Trudeau reportedly told the Canadian Press "this is an investment in our future."
