Trudeau stops in Halton region, talks affordability and climate change

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was in the Halton region today, visiting with families and young people in Burlington, Milton, and Oakville.

Trudeau was here to talk about his government’s plans to tackle the affordability crisis and address climate change but didn’t take any questions from the media.

Trudeau began his Halton tour with a stop at a Burlington restaurant to meet with a group of local moms, along with Burlington MP Karina Gould.

Trudeau was asked about the status of $10-a-day childcare, “we are being regularly assured that childcare fees will drop in half on average by the end of the year here in Ontario.”

Trudeau then went to Milton with Milton MP Adam Van Koeverden, where he met with a group of young people to plant a tree and spend some time chatting with families.

His next stop was in Oakville with MP Anita Anand, where he met with workers at the Ontario Sheet Metal Workers Training Centre.

Despite being in our region for most of the day, he took no questions from the media.

CHCH News was only able to attend the final event because just one television camera crew was allowed to be at each of the carefully coordinated photo ops.
