On Monday, the federal government announced that Canada planned to ban single-use plastics as early as 2021.

It’s hard to be upset about a move that’s meant to help the environment, but as with most political announcements, it came with its fair share of debate.

That debate became even more heated following a press conference regarding the announcement held by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

When asked by a reporter what he and his family does to cut back on plastics, Trudeau got tongue tied to say the least.

“We, uh, have, uh, recently switched to drinking, uh, water bottles out of...water out of, uh, when we have water bottles, uh, out of, uh, plastic, uh, sorry, away from plastic towards, uh, paper, um, like drink box water bottles sort of things,” he said, looking quite flustered.

It didn’t take long for the video to start making the rounds on social media and be shared widely by those who don’t support the current prime minister.

You can almost bank on the clip being used in Conservative and NDP election ads as we creep closer to this fall’s federal election!
