WINNIPEG — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will land in Winnipeg later this week for a town hall as part of his cross-Canada tour.
Trudeau will speak at the University of Winnipeg’s Duckworth Centre at 3:30 p.m. The original plan was for Trudeau to attend the Caboto Centre on Wilkes Avenue, but an overwhelming demand for tickets required a larger venue.
His grassroots tour is to allow Trudeau the opportunity to “remain connected with Canadians and engage with them across the country, at home in their communities.”
OTTAWA – The Office of the Commissioner of Official Languages has received nine complaints related to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s French-only answers to English questions at a public meeting in Quebec.
Spokesman Nelson Kalil said Thursday the office is launching an investigation into the complaints.
OTTAWA – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is ringing in the new year with a determined effort to re-establish his connection with grassroots Canadians after closing out 2016 amid accusations of kowtowing to wealthy donors at elite Liberal fundraisers.
Trudeau is planning to embark on a campaign-style tour, talking to average folks at coffee shops and church basements across the country.
OTTAWA – When it comes to keeping promises, Canadians know full well that politicians are not at all like Horton, the Dr. Seuss character who “meant what I said and I said what I meant: an elephant’s faithful, 100 per cent.”
They make many promises to win elections, but often find it impossible to deliver on them once they take office.
