Indeed, the Liberal leader met a double while campaigning in the city of Markham, Ontario.
The fake Trudeau is actually called Stephen Kalyn. The latter has become quite popular on TikTok because of his imitations of Justin Trudeau.
Last April, the impersonator made a parody in which he mocked the Liberal leader after the latter interrupted a press conference to get his coat.
The parody of this incident was seen by more than 2.4 million Internet users and received nearly 330,000 “likes” on TikTok.
And on Saturday, the two men had a brief, sympathetic exchange during which the outgoing Prime Minister confessed to his double that his real wife, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, very much liked the video of the forgotten coat.
