Story highlights

Canadian Prime Minister has urged the citizens to reach out to him if they face any difficulties in their kids' school work.

Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who is a former teacher has decided to help the students amidst the nationwide lockdown.

Canada has been on a partial lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Trudeau feels bad for the kids who have been locked in their homes due to the virus, and have had to continue their studies from home.

Sympathising with them, he has asked students and parents to reach out to him if they are facing problems with any kind of school work.

"Hey parents! If your kids are stuck on a homework question, feel free to pass this message along. Because as a teacher, I want to help out. Let me know what the difficult question is by replying to this tweet or using the hashtag #CanadaHomeworkHelp - and I'll see what I can do," he tweeted on Sunday. The tweet also had a video message along.


He also announced support for nurses and businesses during this pandemic, in two different video messages through his official Twitter account.

The Twitter messages came few days after Canadian Prime Minister told people to exercise caution as he believes that the country is still in emergency phase.
