Social media gets hot under collar after Justin Trudeau firefighter picture in Regina
Trudeau visited southern Saskatchewan Thursday, met with farmers, students
While Justin Trudeau spoke about everything from the federal carbon tax to NAFTA during a recent visit to Saskatchewan, people on social media had ... other things on their minds.
Trudeau stopped in at Regina's No. 4 firehall on Thursday during his one-day tour and posed in a firefighter's coat.

And that's when things got ... steamy — at least on Twitter.
