  • Anti-pipeline protesters shout at Trudeau during campaign event in Burnaby, B.C

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says some people*will choose the politics of anger, fear and division, but Liberals*will stay focused on serving Canadians, bringing*people together and*building a better future.

    He made the remarks after a small group of anti-pipeline*protesters began shouting at him at a campaign event to support*Richard T. Lee, the Liberal candidate in the Burnaby South*byelection.*

    Trudeau joined Lee at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, where*dozens of supporters cheered as Trudeau said he expects Lee to be a*strong voice in Parliament for residents of Burnaby, B.C.

    Lee is a former provincial legislator who replaced the Liberals'*first candidate, Karen Wang, after she resigned following an online*post mentioning the ethnicity of her opponent, NDP Leader Jagmeet*Singh.

    Singh is seeking his first seat in Parliament in the byelection,*scheduled for Feb. 25, and earlier today he attended the annual*Chinese New Year parade in Vancouver.

    A small group of demonstrators clad in yellow vests also greeted*Trudeau outside the Burnaby event to protest his government's*policies on immigration.
