Trudeau town hall

The latest stop on the prime minister’s cross country tour brought him to a packed Dartmouth Sportsplex last night.

Justin Trudeau fielded questions from a huge audience defending his policies on pipelines, saying his government is doing its best to protect jobs while also protecting the environment. He said there’ll be those who agree with what they’re going and those who don’t.

When asked whether his government would help fund replacements for aging hospitals like the Victoria General, Trudeau said it’s up to the provincial government to set priorities for infrastructure money.
