    Commenting on the incident, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that his 70-year-old mother Margaret "was doing fine" and praised fire and ambulance crews "for their incredible work."

    Mother of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Margaret Sinclair Trudeau, was taken to a hospital late on Monday for smoke inhalation treatment after a fire broke at the apartment building where she lives.

    The building that is located near to the Montreal General Hospital wasn't seriously damaged, though the firefighting team decided to evacuate all three families living in it.

    No one else has been injured, and firefighters believe Sinclair Trudeau will make a full recovery in the near future.

    Justin Trudeau has cancelled his daily press conference, though it's not confirmed whether he did this due to the incident with his mother.
