Like previous attempts to hide from dissent, Trudeau released his itinerary at the last minute, but that didn’t stop his detractors from showing up to hurl insults at the bumbling Prime Minister at the Calgary Stampede.
At a pancake breakfast event with everyone’s favourite porch pirate, George Chahal, Trudeau was recorded attempting to give a speech while attendees screamed “traitor” at him — a common occurrence for Trudeau.
Indeed, this comes only days after getting called a “communist pig” who should “go back to China” by a Canadian woman that spotted him in Sudbury, Ontario.
Of course, what actually happened at the Stampede and what was reported were two entirely different stories, and the mainstream media quietly had to amend their articles covering the appearance after lying that Trudeau was “mobbed by admirers.”
Later in the day, apparently not wanting to take the risk of more outbursts, Trudeau headed to the Calgary Stampede’s stadium for a controlled photo-op.
In the photos, Trudeau talks to a handful of Liberal supporters while the stadium can be seen empty in the background.
In all, Trudeau only spent six hours in Calgary for the biggest event in Alberta all year. Unsurprising, as the last time he attended, thousands booed him.
