Justin Trudeau Met Elton John On Parliament Hill

While U.S. President Donald Trump reportedly refused to meet with Justin Trudeau at the UN earlier this week, Canada’s Prime Minister did have a meeting with a music icon when Elton John and David Furnish paid a visit to his office in Ottawal.

The “Rocket Man” singer and his Canadian-born husband joined Trudeau in his Parliament Hill office on Friday to discuss their foundation, with Trudeau sharing a photo of the meeting on social media.

“The work of the Elton John and David Furnish Foundation is important all over the world, and I look forward to working together in creating the future free of AIDS,” wrote the PM. “Elton and David, thank you for your continued leadership in this and for today’s meeting.”

Furnish also posted a photo from their meeting on social media, as did Trudeau’s official photographer, Adam Scotti, revealing that Sir Elton wore a jacket emblazoned with the title of his 1973 hit “Bennie and the Jets”.

Elton John was in Ottawa to perform as part of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, which kicked off with a two-night stint in Toronto this week. The tour — which is scheduled to run into 2021 — will be the 71-year-old rocker’s final tour.

Here’s how the meeting was greeted on Twitter:
