"Isn't there a hospital you should be going to bother right now?" Justin Trudeau told the protester.
While campaigning in B.C. a week before election day, Justin Trudeau shot back at a protester who tried to crash his interview.
Trudeau was getting ready to speak with a reporter outside of a Global News station in Burnaby on September 13 when protesters across the parking lot started blasting loud music and shouted at him using vulgar language.
Global News shared the video and reported that one protester called Trudeau a communist, made derogatory comments about Sophie Grégoire Trudeau and urged him to get closer in what seemed to be a challenge for a fight.
At one point, Trudeau pulled down his mask and shouted, "isn't there a hospital you should be going to bother right now?"
That same day, he pledged that, if re-elected, his government would make it a criminal offence to block access to buildings that provide healthcare. "Whether that's hospitals, clinics, abortion clinics, pharmacies, testing centres, it is not ok that across the country, hospitals are having to put up barricades today to manage the mobs coming their way," he said.
"I know I will not allow those special interest groups, those protesters who can — I don't want to even call them protesters — those anti-vaxxer mobs to dictate how this country gets through this pandemic," Trudeau previously said about demonstrations at his campaign events.
