Two things happened during Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s kayak expedition in British Columbia’s Gulf Islands National Park Reserve on Saturday: first, he fell out of the boat, and then, for at least the second time since he was elected PM, he stumbled upon a bride and groom and took some photos with them.
