Justin Trudeau Swarmed by Angry Protesters Demanding He Resign, Videos Show

Videos shared to Twitter on Wednesday show an angry crowd calling on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to resign.

The videos were reportedly recorded in Hamilton—a city in Ontario where Trudeau and his Cabinet are currently participating in a three-day retreat—and show protesters carrying flags and shouting “Resign!”

Footage posted by Canadian newspaper columnist Joe Warmington shows Trudeau walking down the street with police as protesters follow and shout at the prime minister.

Some of those in the crowd carried signs that said “F*** Trudeau” and at least one person was carrying a Canadian flag. A woman can be heard to shout “Resign” and others join her in demanding Trudeau step down.

“This was quite a scene outside James St restaurant in Hamilton when ⁦@JustinTrudeau and security pulled a classic decoy move with protesters by his car in the back. But he still got an earful from some angry demonstrators,” Warmington tweeted.

Another video of the scene, shared by Harrison Faulkner of Canadian digital media platform True North, shows protesters hooting horns and swearing at Trudeau.

This is a breaking news story and will be updated.
