Trudeau lashed out at the woman as intolerant and racist when she asked whether his government would repay Quebec taxpayers for the $146 million cost of settling illegal aliens (posing as refugees). Good thing she didn’t identity them as “Muslim” illegal aliens.
VermillionStandard Prime Minister Justin Trudeau addresses local Liberals and Liberal MPs from the South Shore of Montreal for a summer corn roast in Sabrevois, Que., on Thursday, August 16, 2018. Trudeau lashed back at a right-wing activist who questioned him about the cost of “illegal immigrants” in Quebec, calling her “intolerant and racist.” Then she was manhandled and arrested by his security team.

The heckler, social media posts suggest, appears to be affiliated with an anti-(Muslim) migrant group in Quebec that’s been accused by the far-left of “racist pronouncements.”
