Trudeau skipping Caribbean trip amid rail blockades, protests
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has cancelled a planned trip to Barbados as protests continue to choke rail travel across the country.Published Sunday, February 16, 2020 6:48PM EST Last Updated Sunday, February 16, 2020 6:55PM EST Prime Minister Justin Trudeau holds a closing press conference following the Munich Security Conference, in Munich, Germany, Friday, Feb. 14, 2020. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Sean Kilpatrick SHARE TORONTO -- Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has cancelled a planned trip abroad as protests continue to choke rail travel across the country. The Prime Minister's Office confirmed Sunday night that Trudeau will remain in Canada on Monday, skipping a two-day trip to Barbados during which he planned to secure support from Caribbean leaders for Canada's bid to land a seat on the United Nations Security Council. Trudeau returned to Canada late Friday after spending a week in Ethiopia, Kuwait, Senegal and Germany, where he attended the Munich Security Conference. He spent the weekend in private meetings in Ottawa, according to his public schedule. At least some of those meetings touched on the ongoing protests in support of the Wet'suwet'en Nation and opposition within that community to the current proposal for a natural gas pipeline in northern B.C. Indigenous Services Minister Marc Miller told CTV's Question Period on Sunday that he had talked to Trudeau both before and after his nine-hour meeting with Mohawk First Nation members in Tyendinaga, Ont. on Saturday. A protest next to a rail line in Tyendinaga, Ont., has resulted in CN Rail halting its freight service in Eastern Canada and Via Rail doing the same for all passenger service across the country. The Prime Minister's Office confirmed that Canada will be represented in the Caribbean by Foreign Affairs Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne in Trudeau's stead. More to come. Read more: CTV News
Oh my, he’s skipping another holiday to do his prime ministerial job......well, let’s make it news worthy and make it seem like he's doing a grand thing here by granting us his presence 🤢🤮 He can’t seem to make up his mind - one day he says “we are a nation of the rule of law” the next day he tells the police NOT to enforce the law...what good will this idiot be...
CANADA WHERE YOU DO AS YOU PLEASE Police that don't police; a prime minister that does not administer; trains that don't run; pipelines that don't pipe; commuters that don't commute; lawbreakers that do as they please. What kind of message does this clown send Perfect- so the trains should be running by noon?
skippy skipped his 'never ending vacation' to 'play at PM'... It's about fucking time. Although I expect he'll just do nothing from home now as opposed to from abroad. Useless leader! Proof positive people DON'T get the government they DESERVE... What a hero!
Canada doesn’t tell police what to do, Trudeau says of rail blockadesScheer said the prime minister should tell Public Safety Minister Bill Blair to use his authority under the RCMP Act to end what he called the ‘illegal blockades’ Precisely! ~ Go for diplomacy! The RCMP have no problem handing out speeding tickets but when the going gets tough you’ll find them all hiding out in donut shops. cdnpoli The police will do whatever he wants them to do.
He thinks this NOW makes him look good! Trudeau has to cancel an important meeting so the Mohawks at the blockade can play cowboys & Indians with our economy. NO TO THE CORRUPT UN. Trudeau has to cancel an important meeting so the Mohawks at the blockade can play cowboys & Indians. It’s about time he steps up and deals with this...
Wow Cutting edge hack news It is his JOB Oooh what a hero. Clown Hooray / forced to work👍 Trudeau didn't cancel, he merely postponed his trip. Trudeau have to much of soft spot for Indigenous. Like JRB he let it escalated to much . . Same things for the block-aid .But catch-22 there for people criticize the minsters for not doing there jobs. The should be more independent. But when Trudeau away . Cry he should be there
Western Canada: What kind of budget will the BC NDP deliver?Plus: Trudeau is defending his government’s handling of the anti-pipeline protests that have shut down rail lines and disrupted commercial use and passenger travel across the country The opposition Liberals, ineffective toadies as it should be. They proved to be incompetent when they were in office.
World leaders probably told him it looks bad you’re not going back, wondering what the hell is wrong with him that he doesn’t know that,loser! CTVNationalNews I am sad to hear angry mobs of right fighters doing illegal acts in Canada are winning yet again. PM Trudeau, no one can reason with an angry mob. The provincial police need to arrest these radicals. Jail & heavy fines are needed. The military should make sure the trains run.
He’s useless anyways so what’s the difference! I'll believe it when I see him stepping off the plane. I hope he bought carbon credits for the flight. Oh skipping a trip we pay for... what a travesty... breaking news... would rather see he’s leaving office Just wait till Liberals try to take the indians guns
CTV Looks like your boy Skippy trudeau is worried Quebec won't it's propane Decided he wil just e-transfer the bribes Quid Pro Quo Well he’s not taking a friggin train to there !!! Lol
Federal minister meets First Nation at rail blockadeThe federal Indigenous services minister began meetings today with representatives of the Mohawk Nation to discuss a rail blockade that has shut down rail services across Eastern Canada. More freedoms will be lost. It's the natural progression of government inaction things will get out of control and then poof out comes the wars measures act and that's what he will do just like his daddy. Time to arrest all the eco terrorists before we have civil war in Canada. They have openly admitted to attempting to shut down commerce Time to move them off of highways and railways or charge them with economic terrorism There is plenty of space to protest elsewhere
Only because his “Bum Buddy” in Quebec asked him to because they need the West’s Gas... I Say FU%K them🤬 TrudeauMustGo RemoveTheTurd canpoli TimeToTakeBackCanada civilwar Booo fricken hoo... “Skipping his trip”... you’re serious? - please don’t twist this narrative to be anything other than doing due diligence as Prine Minister of Canada, a country in turmoil, crisis & divide.
Does he want a medal ? Oh great.... he will say sorry and give them 50 million dollars and go back on vacation..... time to buy votes. Idiot + beard = idiot with a beard Headline should read .. Liberal Party flat out told Trudeau he can't go on another trip while the country burns. The Liberal party is currently the wet noodle party of Canada, we need strong leaders in Canada enough of the apologist, the pandering, the special interest groups, the foreign interventions and the payoffs, clear the railways and stop all travel to and from China now. canpoli
Who Cares CTV! He may be hero he’s our ZERO
Federal Indigenous services minister meets First Nation at rail blockadeThe federal Indigenous services minister began meetings today with representatives of the Mohawk Nation to discuss a rail blockade that has shut down rail services across Eastern Canada.

How many bloody holidays does this clown need? Actually, we are better off without JustinTrudeau He'll just offer them a large sum of someone else's money to move. Then take all the credit. Somebody must have filled him in on “the news.” What was eastern Canada thinking electing this guy again? Seriously!
CanHCBarbados BarbadosToday NationBarbados Don’t let this fake, repeat offender anywhere near your country. He must feel confident and has given out enough bribes to secured his UN seat with his fellow globalists. Wow. You mean hes actually going to come home from vacation and do his job?!?!? Whaaaat!... He will need a holiday after this forsure
I don't care what he says or does, he has not handled this and let it escalate to this level. He has to go, Canadians have had more than their fill of this jerk. Anger is at an all time high. The damage to the economy is done. TrudeauMustGo Don’t trust him to fix this! He will cancel the oil and gas line as he is determined to destroy Canada.
COMMENTARY: Amid blockades, Trudeau needs to borrow a page from his father and show resolveCOMMENTARY: Canadians might not be looking for Trudeau to be parroting his father, but it’s fair to say that Canadians are looking for some leadership, some clarity, and some backbone, writes Rob Breakenridge. None of which he is showing. Canadians are looking for the traitor to steop down and do our country a favor but this won't happen because he won't be able to give away millions to BS to gain a seat at the U.N after he done being PM Canada needs the trains to move. Jobs are being lost!!!!
JustinTrudeau Well that’s mighty white of you. I feel so bad as to how inconvenienced you must be. I’m sure when you do go, it’ll be twice as long and cost us twice as much!! FML canadasjackass He was going to kiss ass once again and give away millions and millions of out tax dollars to convince others for a booster seat for him in the UN ! TrudeauWorstPM

He was going to kiss ass once again and give away millions and millions of out tax dollars to convince others for a booster seat for him in the UN ! TrudeauWorstPM I wonder how many Canadians really give a crap about the UN seat ? He should be here , pointing out the protesters that are breaking the law , then having them arrested !!!

And by 'get it', I mean paid off. Trudeau's going to fold like cheap shirt and throw Canadians under the bus. Holy crap he decided to do his job
Your the ' BOY ' Holy crap! The beard works! Our hero 😂😂🤣🤣 What a hero! This is a disaster. Send him out if the country as often as you can. They must have finally figured out how to spin this in their favour.
THE TRUDEAU GOVERNMENT HAS FAILED THIS COUNTRY MISERABLY. WE NEED A NONE-CONFIDENCE VOTE IN PARLIAMENT. Oooh, impressive, one of the lackeys finally spoke up and provided some good advice! Nice of him to return and try to solve Canadian problems 😥 Is this for real? Trudeau needs to stop giving word salad answers and pretending to be woke and do his damn job! Canada has a crisis and Trudeau needs to step up as leader. First Nations people discriminated in Canada for centuries. Act like a leader Justin and solve this!
Why bother will not enforce the LAW! Go on your trip nothing is getting done anyway Awwww poor justin ! What a noble thing to do not a fan, but this is not his issue.
