Smarter, more dignified than “real” PM: Cut out the cardboard cut-outs of Trudeau, Canadian diplomats told

Public confused by “intelligence” and “dignity” of cardboard facsimile versus ugly reality.

Canada’s diplomats have been told to stop using life-size, cardboard cut-outs of Justin Trudeau at promotional events.

Stand-up images of the prime minister have appeared at Canadian events in the United States, attracting visitors, many of whom have snapped fake-Trudeau selfies and then posted them on social media.
