Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was criticized by a volunteer for reportedly holding up the line while people were filling sandbags. Trudeau and his sons were in flooded Constance Bay today helping with the sandbags.
Lawyer Michael Spratt (who is the husband of former NDP Candidate Emilie Taman) appluaded the volunteer for his actions against Trudeau. Tweeting
I know this man who confronted Trudeau. He is a wonderful, generous, and hard working soul. He was one of my mentors and inspirations. I am the lawyer I am today because of him. And he is right on this one.
Let’s be honest. 15 min of sandbag filling was totally a photo-op that probably delayed things. Intent was good but the goals can be accomplished without interfering with the time sensitive work on the front line. But politicians gotta politician (just like Ford did yesterday)
