CORNER BROOK – The sun was shining bright early this morning at Corner Brook’s Grenfell Campus.  People gathered patiently waiting while enjoying a complimentary breakfast with the Liberal Party.

The man himself, Mr. Justin Trudeau, The Prime Minister of Canada was on his way. Accompanied by his entourage of Liberals, police, and media coverage, he began his journey at the Strawberry Hill Mansion.

His top secret, until yesterday, itinerary, scheduled him to meet with Premier Dwight Ball.  Muskrat Falls was on the agenda.

Shortly afterwards, Trudeau travelled to Grenfell to speak with the people. But before he made his way to the Atrium, he made a special stop. Trudeau wanted to honour our fallen soldiers by planting Forget-Me-Nots at the Danger Tree memorial.

His charismatic, charming character had the ladies and gentlemen’s eager to capture a selfie. Trudeau was confident and humble as he walked his way through the crowded room.  He shook hands and held babies. He posed for photos and answered the curious questioners with ease.

When he clued up with a round of questions from the crowd he left as quickly as he arrived. On the road again, Trudeau’s next stop; St. John’s.
