Lana Goldberg spoke up and protested Trudeau’s mishandling of the mercury poisoning crisis and was met by a smug “Thank you for your donation. I really appreciate your donation to the Liberal Party of Canada,” Trudeau said.

The next day, Trudeau apologized. “Last night I lacked respect towards them and I apologize for that,” he says

“Trudeau’s apology rings hollow while our people are suffering without the care and support that we need,” Turtle told the National Post.
