      It was supposed to be a celebratory day in Ottawa as representatives of Daughters of the Vote took their seats in the House of Commons.

      These delegates, all between the ages of 18 and 23, represent each of the 338 ridings in Canada.

      Once they're selected, they are given an opportunity to make statements and attend Question Period.

      They also get to hear from prominent politicians, like former prime minister Kim Campbell, who received a warm welcome this morning.

      But some in this year's group did something different.

      For instance, when Justin Trudeau started speaking about the importance of teamwork in caucus, several of these delegates stood up and turned their backs to him. It was seen as a show of support for recently ousted caucus members Jane Philpott and Jody Wilson-Raybould.

      Some delegates also walked out of the chamber after Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer started speaking.

      Here are some of the messages being passed around on social media.

      One of the most compelling moments came when a Mi'kmaq delegate, Hannah Martin, delivered a fiery speech condemning Trudeau for his approach to environmental issues.

      You can watch it below.

      Watch Indigenous delegate Hannah Martin tell Justin Trudeau he "cannot be a feminist if he allows corporations to rape the land".

      Prior to these events, Philpott and Wilson-Raybould made themselves available to journalists to offer their thoughts on the young delegates.
