Trudeau dodges questions on breaking gathering limits during packed campaign stop


Liberal Party leader Justin Trudeau ignored questions from reporters on whether or not his campaign appearance at a Mississauga restaurant on Friday broke Ontario’s COVID-19 indoor gathering limits. The incident occurred at a local Syrian bakery, Nafisa Middle Eastern Cuisine. “There are more than 25 people in this fairly tight and crowded space and provincial law in Ontario currently limits indoor gatherings to 25 people. Are you breaking the spirit if not the letter of the law to hold a party event and lecture the premier of Ontario on vaccine passports?” asked a reporter. “Canadians are facing a really important choice right now. Cutting over the past number of months, Canadians saw what kind of big decisions, big choices, their government had to make to keep people safe, to make sure we got through this pandemic better than most other countries around the world,” Trudeau responded. During the same campaign stop, Trudeau admitted that not all Liberal candidates have been fully vaccinated when further questioned on his policy that every individual running under the party banner must have received the vaccine.
