As Trudeau was wrapping up his short speech, Uni Urchin, a pipeline opponent involved with the Camp Cloud protest on Burnaby Mountain in 2018, called the prime minister a “criminal.”
“You have broken the law. You’re a criminal. Shame on you,” Urchin yelled as someone tried to stand between her and a reporter’s camera.
Trudeau handed the microphone to Lee who spoke for roughly three minutes as the heckling continued. The former BC Liberal MLA of 16 years said he is a committed community member excited to represent Burnaby South in Ottawa.
The pipeline opponents weren’t the only ones to brave a snowstorm to protest Trudeau.. About 10 protesters in yellow vests, representing a nascent right-wing movement in the country, held signs outside the Shadbolt Centre accusing Trudeau of “treason” and opposing the UN Compact for Migration.
