Justin Trudeau-Headshot

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has cancelled his junket to Barbados to stay in Ottawa to deal with the growing crisis of rail blockades by protesters upset with the Coastal GasLink construction.

Trudeau spent last week in Africa lobbing for Canada to get a seat on the UN Security Council. He was going to Barbados for a two-day gathering of leaders from across the Caribbean Community, or Caricom, but will send Foreign Affairs Minister François-Philippe Champagne instead.
