Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was heckled and protested during a campaign stop in Burnaby South ahead of the February 25 byelection.
Trudeau, who was campaigning for Liberal candidate Richard Lee, was called criminal by some protesters in the wake of the recent SNC-Lavalin fiasco.
One of the 200 in attendance was anti-pipeline activist Uni Urchin.
“You have broken the law. You’re a criminal. Shame on you,” Urchin was caught on camera yelling.
Eventually, Trudeau handed the microphone to Lee who went on to speak for a few minutes while the heckling continued.
This byelection is incredibly important as it will be a major test for NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh. If he loses this byelection, his leadership could be in jeopardy.
