  • Prominent Canadians on the Biden-Harris inauguration

"Canada and the United States have worked side by side to tackle some of the greatest challenges we have faced in our history. We will continue this partnership as we fight the global COVID-19 pandemic and support a sustainable economic recovery that will build back better for everyone. We will also work together to advance climate action and clean economic growth, promote inclusion and diversity, and create good middle-class jobs and opportunities for our people while contributing to democracy, peace, and security at home and around the world."

— Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

"Congratulations to President Biden and Vice-President Harris on your inauguration. Looking forward to working together to get Canadians and Americans back to work."

— Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole

"Today is historic. As Kamala Harris is sworn in as the first woman and woman of colour to become vice-president of the United States of America, (an) entire generation of women will reimagine what is possible in ways they have never before."

— NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh

---"And that’s a wrap on the series finale of Trump. I started his presidency by chugging a beer live on-air with Peter Mansbridge. There's been a lot of orange makeup since. I’ve never been so relieved to lose a gig."

— Comedian Mark Critch
