Watch: Justin Trudeau urges woman who uses ‘mankind’ to say ‘peoplekind’ instead

Watch: Justin Trudeau urges woman who uses ‘mankind’ to say ‘peoplekind’ insteadJustin Trudeau, the Canadian prime minister, interrupted a woman who said the phrase “mankind” and suggested “peoplekind” should be used instead.  The comment came as Mr Trudeau took questions during a visit to the Ewan University in Edmonton, Canada, on Thursday.  A young woman from the World Mission Society Church of God, a controversial feminist church founded in South Korea, asked a question from the audience.  She said: “We have received the Queen's Award in the UK, we have received many awards.  “We have received many awards, however, unfortunately in Canada, our volunteering as a religious charitable organization is extremely difficult. “We came here today to ask you to also look into the policies that religious charitable organizations have in our legislations so that it can also be changed because maternal love is the love that's going to change the future of mankind." Mr Trudeau interrupted to say: “We like to say peoplekind, not necessarily mankind 'cause it's more inclusive.”  The comment triggered mockery on social media as users accused Mr Trudeau of “mansplaining” - condescendingly explaining something to a woman.  It comes days after Canadian politicians voted to make its national anthem gender neutral after a lengthy campaign from equality activists. The line "in all thy sons command" will become "in all of us command" in the English-language version of its national song, O Canada.
