Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is considered one of the world’s few high-profile progressive leaders.


One can’t rule out the fact that he has a human touch too.


Three years ago, he welcomed refugees fleeing war and persecution.



He even admits his mistakes. He accepted a watchdog’s report that he breached ethics rules by trying to influence a corporate legal case.


A champion of Canadian multiculturalism, Trudeau apologised after photos surfaced showing him wearing brownface and blackface as a young man.


The man former US President Barack Obama privately anointed as a successor in global diplomacy may have his flaws, but that doesn’t dent his popularity.


He particularly is concerned about the wellbeing of his countrymen, particularly children, in the face of the global pandemic.


He knows the strain children undergo while studying from home. The virtual learning also affects the condition of their parents.


Trudeau, a former teacher, wants to tap his pedagogic skills to make homework look easy-peasy for kids.


A new video shows Trudeau saying he wants to lend a helping hand to children - and even parents - with their school studies.


In the video he remarks, "Hey parents! If your kids are stuck on a homework question, feel free to pass this message along. Because as a teacher, I want to help out. Let me know what the difficult question is by replying to this tweet or using the hashtag #CanadaHomeworkHelp - and I’ll see what I can do.”


"Hey kids, I know we’re all going through a difficult time right now, and it’s not made any easier by the fact that you have to do your homework around the kitchen table.


"I think parents across the country are discovering a new appreciation for the incredible work that teachers do.


"Well, as a teacher, I want to help. If you’ve encountered challenges or problems that are really tough and you need a little extra help with, why don’t you reach out by responding to this message or using the hashtag?


"My friends and I will be happy to try and help you out because, after all, the way we’re going to get through this is by pulling together.”
