Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was giving a press conference in Winnipeg earlier this afternoon when he was interrupted by a man calling him a scumbag.
“Your carbon tax has failed, people know what you’re up to. It is a tax on everything. Shame on you. Shame on you. Shame on you and your globalist counterparts. You’re a scumbag. You’re an absolute scumbag,” yelled the heckler.
Trudeau looked shocked at first, but then smirked when the man was escorted out of the room. He then lost his train of thought when continuing to speak in French.

The angry protester may have been outraged by the news today, reported exclusively by Blacklock’s Reporter, that a secret government memo admits the carbon tax could rise to six times the initial rate.
