Today, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau toured Ubisoft Montreal, the studio that gave birth to Assassin's Creed -- and tried out upcoming VR game Eagle Flight on an Oculus Rift.

According to a report from Canada's Global News, Trudeau's visit was spurred by a desire to signal the government's interest in the tech sector, ahead of the next Canadian federal budget, which is reportedly set to include new innovation investments. 

There's little reporting on what happened during Trudeau's visit aside from some shaky footage of the prime minister playing Eagle Flight, but he did tweet a photo while at the studio, which includes the caption that he held "discussions on the future of the industry."  

The photo (also shown above) pictures Trudeau speaking to the studio's CEO, Yannis Mallat, while Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot looks on.

Ubisoft Montreal's Twitter, meanwhile, shared two more images:
