Justin Trudeau has recently stopped appeared in public spaces, due to being heckled constantly while on the campaign trail. His recent visit to Newmarket, Ont. was the first in over a week where he met with his supporters in the open, not behind closed doors and with limited access to the public.
Trudeau's announcement of $1 billion
in federal funding for provinces to implement a COVID vaccine passport was the main issue for many protesters. Trudeau has also openly called for and proudly supports the medical segregation of the unvaccinated.
The leader of the Liberal party only responded to our Quebec-based reporter, Alexa Lavoie. In response to Alexa asking how long the proposed vaccine passport is meant to be in place for, Trudeau told her to "get vaccinated."
Apparently, Trudeau doesn't like to answer questions from media outlets that haven't been bought and paid for.
After demonizing the protesters as "those people" in a speech last week, Trudeau has tried to not show his face in public as it draws large crowds of hecklers. In the above clop, Trudeau quickly touches elbows with Liberal supporters at a local restaurant in Newmarket, Ont. In the background, you can hear the roar of protesters. As he drives off in his motorcade, the crowd shouts out "Coward!"
Despite the media's attempt to demonize any critics the prime minister faces in person, in response to his announced policies, there have not been any acts of violence at any of the protests. Throughout this past summer, however, there were over 50 churches burned down in response to news of the unmarked graves on the grounds of former residential schools in B.C. Trudeau's former principal secretary and best friend, Gerry Butts, called the arsons "understandable." Trudeau himself, after several churches had burned, was pressured into make a statement after receiving backlash from Canadians. As of now, there is no current federal investigation into the churches that were burned.
