Justin Trudeau and Jose Canseco discuss the Montreal Canadiens

This is why Twitter was invented. To bring people together.


When the Ottawa Senators scored late in tonight’s game with the Montreal Canadiens to tie the score, Justin Trudeau was displeased.

Merde! #GoHabsGo

This was retweeted by National Post columnist Bruce Arthur, who is followed by former baseball star Jose Canseco, who then directed a tweet at Mr. Trudeau.

hey buddy @JustinTrudeau habs or leafs?

Mr. Trudeau responded.

.@JoseCanseco Sorry bud, as long as the #Habs are still in, they’re my team. Then it’s whatever Canadian team is left.

Mr. Canseco then attempted to continue the conversation.

@JustinTrudeau blue and white for me buddy #leafs .what should we do about rod ford @tomayorford?

As of this writing, Mr. Trudeau has not commented on what they should do about “Rod Ford.” But Mr. Canseco does now credit Mr. Trudeau with his knowledge of French swear words. Also, Mr. Canseco seems to think that, given the electoral significance of Ontario, Mr. Trudeau might consider supporting the Leafs.

  1. Wonder if Canseco knows how many goals Bill Kessel has so far ?

  2. As I tweeted 3 hrs ago: “@JoseCanseco @JustinTrudeau @TOMayorFord When Jose tweets Justin & mentions Rob – #cdnpoli takes on a bizarro flavour other countries envy.”

  3. A potential PM endorsing one Canadian hockey team over another? In WAY over his head.

    (In case it wasn’t clear, that was tongue in cheek. This time.)

    • He’s willing to take a stand. I like that. Even if its not for my team.

    • Agreed. I can’t believe Jose stuck his neck out and backed the Leafs like that.

      OH WAIT, you’re talking about Trudeau. Never mind.

  4. Montreal season will end tonight….Toronto tomorrow which will make NBC very happy…
    Canadiens finishing as the 2nd seed was ‘a fluke’ Would say that if Pittsburgh loses to the Islanders(Their goaltender has been AWFUL) any of the teams including Toronto, Montreal could end up in the Stanley Cup Final….vs Chicago or San Jose who are ++++
    times better…..
