Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stressed this Tuesday that “the people’s right to self-determination is important.” When asked specifically about the October 1 independence referendum, Trudeau didn’t give an opinion on what he said was an “internal process.” 

Still, he firmly maintained the importance of the right to self-determination, and added that he’s been through many referendum “battles” as a Quebecois, explaining that it’s expected that “other countries not get involved in internal processes.”

Speaking at a press conference in Ottawa, he stated that he had “no comments” to make about the situation in Spain, while in the same sentence, declaring himself and his country “convinced” of the importance of self-determination, adding that, in his country, it’s always been “respected.”

He said: “We’re still convinced that the people’s right to auto-determination is important, it’s certainly something that we respect, that we’ve always respected, as far as the situation here in Canada, but again, I don’t have any comments to make about the situation in Spain.”
