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.
Think back seven short months to that October evening when Canada’s political landscape was dramatically transformed. After a decade out of power — much of it as the third party in parliament — the Liberals were back in, led by Trudeau the younger. His brilliant campaign had brought out millions of new and mostly younger voters, ending the era of the dreaded Stephen Harper.
