Nancy Smith was among the folks welcoming Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to Wiarton at noon today.
According to Stu Paterson of Paterson Media, “Trudeau flew in at 11:46 am on a Challenger I believe. He was guarded by 35 RCMP who were very efficient. His team waited on board for a few minutes to decide if he would mingle and he did.”
Paterson says that the Prime Minister was very accessible posing, chatting and shaking hands. Trudeau was in Bruce-Grey Owen Sound riding supporting the Liberal candidate, Michael den Tandt, who had worked in the PM’s office as an advisor. The candidate is also a former editor of the Owen Sound Sun Times news outlet.
The Prime Minister chatted with Georgian Bluffs Mayor Dwight Burley, who was strongly supported in the last municipal election.
Mr. Trudeau appeared happy to pose for photos. At the Wiarton Airport restaurant, a group of women strained to take photos of him
He hopped onto the veranda to pose with the group who turned out to be retired teachers who were having lunch there.
From Wiarton, he spent the afternoon in Owen Sound where he met with den Tandt and Huron-Bruce Liberal candidate Allan Thompson.
