Mayor Plante Turned A Photo Of Herself Into A "My Face When..." Meme & It's So Wholesome

Mayor Valérie Plante has shown her support for Joe Bidden and Kamala Harris on multiple occasions already.

On November 3, the night of the 2020 U.S. election, the mayor tweeted "Good luck @JoeBiden. @KamalaHarris, your high school city is rooting for you!" as Harris spent some of her formative years in Montreal, attending Westmount High School.

Yesterday evening, Plante took to showing her support for the projected new U.S. vice-president by turning a photo of herself into a "My face when..." meme.

With the photo of Plante looking pleased above, she included the caption "My face when a journalist asks me if I'm happy about the election of the first woman American vice-president @kamalaharris."

In Kamala Harris's memorable speech on November 7, she promised: "I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last."

Other Canadian figures, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Quebec Premier François Legault, have publically congratulated Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on winning the U.S. election, as is currently projected.

Trudeau, in the same vein as Plante, also recognized that Harris is set to be the first female vice-president.

"For so many people in Canada and around the world, seeing a woman — and a Black and South Asian-American woman — elected as the next vice-president of the United States is an inspiration," said Trudeau.

"Ill-founded and abusive" is how superior court judge Michèle Monast described a Quebec woman's defamation lawsuit against Justin Trudeau. In a decision published on November 29, Monast shot down Diane Blain's case against the prime minister.

The lawsuit followed a 2018 incident at a Liberal party rally in Sainte-Anne-de-Sabrevois, Quebec, in which Blain asked Trudeau when he would "give back the 146 million [Quebec] paid" to support what she called Trudeau's "illegal immigrants."
