Justin Trudeau managed to insult an entire province by leaving it out of his Canada Day address



Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau decided to give a shout out to every province and territory (or so he thought) during his Canada Day address on Saturday.

That seems like it wouldn't be nearly as daunting as naming all 50 U.S. states, right?

"We may live in British Columbia, Yukon, the Northwest Territories, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Nunavut, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia or Newfoundland and Labrador," he said, "but we embrace that diversity while knowing in our hearts that we are all Canadians."

Well, unfortunately for Trudeau, he forgot Alberta and had to suffer the wrath of the Twittersphere.

Before the event was over, Trudeau acknowledge his mistake and added, "Let me just start by saying I'm a little embarrassed. I got excited somewhere over the Rockies."

But by then, it was already too late. More than 4 million people live in Alberta, according to the Canadian government, and many of them had already taken to Twitter to make sure the prime minister doesn't overlook them again.

Maybe next time he'll try naming all the provinces and territories in ABC order.
