August 27th, Local time, a campaign event scheduled for Trudeau, Canada’s prime minister and leader of the Liberal Party, in Bolton, Ontario, was canceled because of opposition from protesters.
Mr. Trudeau was scheduled to speak to Liberal supporters at a Liberal Party event in Bolton. But dozens of angry protesters gathered at the campaign site, even more than those who supported the Liberals, and before Mr. Trudeau spoke, they began shouting, some even shouting foul language.
The election campaign had to be postponed. Nearly two hours later, a man picked up a megaphone to announce the cancellation of the event, and the crowd responded with shouts.
Trudeau then left on a campaign bus under police escort.
That afternoon, Mr. Trudeau went to Nobulton, near Bolton, for another campaign event, but again met with protesters.
After the bus stopped, the crowd began to cajole and shout, and when Trudeau got out of the car, the noise and shouting grew louder. After Trudeau entered the bakery, some protesters also entered the store. Mr. Trudeau had to leave the scene as soon as possible for safety reasons.
Canada is due to hold federal elections starting on September 20. It is currently in the midst of election campaigns for the parties. Mr. Trudeau hopes to regain control of his parliamentary majority in the election and form a majority government.
