Council of Canadians organizer Angela Giles tweeted this from the town hall meeting in Halifax yesterday evening.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's town hall tour was in Halifax last night.
The Canadian Press reports, "The tone was largely friendly until one woman asked about green energy. 'That oil has to stay in the ground', said a woman who identified herself as Mi'kmaq. 'Why do you guys constantly bring up all these oil pipelines?' Trudeau told the woman that we are 'going to have to agree to disagree on the issue'."
The article continues, "As he tried to say that 39 indigenous communities in Western Canada are supportive of the Kinder Morgan pipeline, he was interrupted by the word 'lies'. Trudeau stopped in his tracks and asked for respect. 'A little respect please, I'm giving you as much respect as I can and I'm asking for the respect back', Trudeau said."
