Minister’s water FROZEN during a press conference

Canada’s new Minister of Indigenous Services Seamus O’Regan came face-to-face with the cold hard truth of the Canadian climate when he attempted to take a sip of water at a press conference, only to realize it had iced over.

A perplexed expression crossed O’Regan’s face as he lifted the glass and declared that the water was frozen solid, provoking laughter from the audience.


The incident took place during a press conference in Ottawa, a slippery start to O’Regan’s appointment as the indigenous services minister.

Ottawa’s notoriously brutal winters can reach lows of -20F (-29C), keeping Canadians, including their politicians, on thin ice.
