Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took to Twitter to offer his condolences. In his tweet, he said, “Matthew Perry’s passing is shocking and saddening. I’ll never forget the schoolyard games we used to play, and I know people around the world are never going to forget the joy he brought them. Thanks for all the laughs, Matthew. You were loved – and you will be missed.” Matthew Perry grew up with Trudeau and had strong political ties with Canada. Perry once even described his Canadian upbringing as, “the pale Canadian kid with a quick mouth.” Perry once claimed he beat Trudeau up in the fifth grade since he was a couple of years older than him (via Twitter).
