Justin Trudeau makes an appearance in Douglas Park
My colleague Doug Sarti just emailed me to say that he recently spotted Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau in Douglas Park.
It comes a day after I ran into Trudeau on Thurlow Street in advance of the Vancouver Pride parade.
When I saw JT, he was posing for pictures surrounded by adoring young women.
From the sounds of it, things were a little more sedate today.
According to Doug, there was a Liberal rally underway in Douglas Park as about 15 people stood off to the side holding placards in support of Gaza.
In his speech, Trudeau referred to B.C. as home, which harked back to when he taught at West Point Grey Academy. This was long before anyone ever imagined he might become Liberal leader.
Today, he was joined on-stage by other Liberals, including Jody Wilson-Raybould, who's the nominated candidate in the new riding of Vancouver Granville. It was created in the middle of the city through redistribution, encompassing Shaughnessy and Douglas Park. Wilson-Raybould is regional chief of the Assembly of First Nations.
There were also free hot dogs and a craft fair for kids, a surefire way to increase attendance in the summer.
