OTTAWA – Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau faced more hostile protesters during the election campaign Monday night, including a man who used a sexist term to describe the politician’s wife.

In response, Trudeau lowered his mask and shouted “Isn’t there a hospital you should be disturbing right now?” “

The leader was referring to the anti-vaccination protests that were scheduled for Monday in several hospitals across the country. Hospital staff described cases of harassment against patients and their colleagues.

The exchange took place as Trudeau waited for an interview with Global News outside their studio in Burnaby, British Columbia.

His wife, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, was not present.

The footage, shot by Global News, shows the protester standing across a parking lot hurling insults and calling on the frontman to fight him as the song “We’re Not Gonna Take It” by the band Twister Sister is played through loudspeakers. .

In recent weeks, Trudeau has faced protests during his campaign events which at times turned violent.
