Prime Minister Justin Trudeau asked questions about everything from pipelines to indigenous rights to his favorite baby toy on Thursday night in front of the vibrant crowd of Regina, which had about 800 people.
It was also asked about tariffs for steel, carbon tax, weapons trading with Saudi Arabia, immigration policies, deficits, and support for mental health.
Before the meeting, protesters gather
Before the beginning, a dozen demonstrators gathered around the scene – the kinesiological building of the University of Regina.
A diverse group included yellow witches, one petroleum and gas applicants and one protege of autochthonous rights.
"I'm not happy with what's going on," said Gloria Armstrong, wearing a yellow shirt.
"Has money been paid to so many other people – $ 10.5 million given to the so-called criminal [Omar Khadr] and veterans do not get money. "
Around 18.30. The convoy of large trucks was also visible at the University of Regina. The trucks later noticed that they were driving through the campus.
The event took place a day after a similar but more bold meeting of Trudeau, which took place in Kamloops, where he had questions about pipelines and reconciliation with indigenous people.
Events outside the university were repeated at the beginning of this week in Regina, when demonstrators who campaigned for a gas pipeline gathered in front of the Saskatchewan legislature and called for support to the resource sector.
This was met by Prime Minister Scott Moe, who has endangered carbon tax and C-69 law that addresses environmental assessments of resource development. A few miles away, there was also an anti-tank gathering.
Trudeau is expected to make several stops in the city's surroundings on Friday, in the company of Ralph Goodale, a Liberalist in Saskatchewan.
