CNN)Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took a knee during a Black Lives Matter demonstration in Ottawa on Friday.

Trudeau's act of solidarity comes after he declined to comment earlier in the day about whether he would be attending the protest. Still, he arrived at Parliament Hill -- home to Canada's Parliament -- wearing a black cloth mask Friday afternoon and surrounded by security guards, according to CNN affiliate CTVnews.

Trudeau did not speak at the event, though he clapped and nodded along with some of the other speakers, including a moment when a speaker asserted there is no middle ground on racism. At another point, he yelled "Amen" along with other protesters after a speaker discussed promoting love and justice.

Some in the crowd shouted at him to stand up to US President Donald Trump, CTVnews reported.

1. If Trump ever took a knee, it would take six Secret Service agents to lift him back up to his feet.

7. Somehow, protestors were able to escape with their lives and their bodies intact.

Rubber bullets didn't arrive on time, tear gas delivery systems had technical issues. Next time, maybe.

I wonder if Justin didn't do that at least partly to troll the putrescent taint.

8. Joe Biden in a show of unity

Needs a photo op of him kneeling , and to get under trumps skin at a protest site with others. JT is a great leader , and isn't scared of trump. Canadians should be proud of him for this.
