Justin Trudeau condemns Anti-vax protestors, targets O’Toole: What you need to know
Canadian Prime Minister and leader of the Liberal party today said that anti-vaccine protesters ought to be condemned in one of his rallies in Sundbury, Ontario. He said that his chief opponent Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole has not done enough to “correct” these protestors.
During his rally, many anti-vaccine protestors were shouting slogans against the Prime Minister. This was not the first time that the protestors disrupted his rally. Last Friday, the protestors forced him to cancel one of his events in Bolton, Ontario. Also, some protestors tried to disrupt his rally on Sunday in Cambridge, Ontario.
Trudeau said that he understands that the lockdown measures have caused frustration among Canadians but he did not show any sympathy to those who tried unsuccessfully to disrupt his Sudbury protest.
Taking shots at his opponent, Trudeau said to the crowd, “Erin O’Toole is siding with them instead of with Canadians who did their part and stepped up.” Erin O’Toole had earlier condemn the actions of the protestors and said on Saturday, “I strongly condemn any form of harassment and protest the like we’ve seen. We should be having a healthy and respectful debate of ideas. And we have no time for people that bring in negativity to campaigning.”
As the election day of September 20th is approaching all candidates are trying to appeal to Canadians. According to the poll data, Justin Trudeau is now at the second spot behind the O’Toole Conservatives and in danger of losing government.
Trudeau further said that he is not going to back down and he does not care how many protestors try to disrupt his events. He said, “So shame on you, Erin O’Toole. You need to condemn those people. You need to correct them. You need to use your voice and actually add it to those of us who understand that vaccinations are the way through this pandemic. And listen to the almost 80 percent of Canadians who know that too.”
