Opposition Reaction to Prime Minister’s Update on Blockades

Bloc Québécois deputy House leader Christine Normandin, NDP whip Rachel Blaney, and Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer speak with reporters in Ottawa following Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s news conference concerning the federal government’s response to ongoing blockades of transportation facilities. The protests, mounted in solidarity with hereditary chiefs of the Wet’suwet’en Nation, have brought a halt to passenger and freight rail traffic in a number of locations across Canada.
