"Daniel Dale, a Toronto Star correspondent said that the "US right-wing pile-on" was misleading as Trudeau was lightly ribbing a woman who was rambling about the power of women" and accused it of omitting context.

It comes after the Canadian national Senate last week gave its final approval to a bill that would remove the word "sons" from the "O Canada" national anthem in order to make it gender-neutral.
