Trudeau wades into QC policy issues during speech

Published: 20 Feb 2013

Liberal leadership favourite Justin Trudeau waded into two areas of provincial policy, at one point even taking shots at the Parti Quebecois government, while visiting Quebec today. Trudeau offered his opinions on Quebec language legislation and on tuition fees, while also reiterating his promise to increase federal involvement in education. Speaking at his alma mater, McGill University, he offered indications that a Trudeau prime ministership would be a marked departure from a Harper era defined by a hands-off approach to provincial issues. … His appearance at McGill drew an audience of a bit more than 100 students, with some unable to fit into the room. He later spoke to a packed auditorium, with about 300 people filling a hall at Dawson College, a number of whom stayed behind later to chat with him and get photos and autographs.
