Butter sculptures are an annual tradition at the CNE, according to their website. And this year's theme for butter sculptures is "Wild in the 6," featuring the Greater Toronto Area's most memorable animals. The theme, according to BlogTO, is inspired by "infamous Toronto animals that have gone viral, from the PM's photo op with the baby pandas to the elusive High Park capybaras."
Check out the butter sculpture below:
According to the Daily Hive, the sculpture is a "collaborative work-in-progress" by artists David Salazar, Olenka Kleban, Laird Henderson and Bailey Henderson.
The panda cubs Mr Trudeau was photographed with last year live at the Toronto Zoo. Their names are Jia Panpan and Jia Yueyue, which mean Canadian Hope and Canadian Joy, respectively.

Trudeau simply must go to the CNE and take a selfie with his butter half. How deliciously meta!— Sharon Boddy (@DasBod) August 22, 2017
