Snubbed again? Calgarians react to Trudeau’s Stampede no show

Jul 6 2017, 5:52 pm

Prime Minister Trudeau will not be attending this year’s Calgary Stampede, his office confirmed to Daily Hive.

When asked why the PM wouldn’t be at Calgary’s most iconic event of the year, his people stated that scheduling constraints were the reason.

As seen on his social media pages, Trudeau is currently in Germany for the G20 summit.

However some Calgarians think that this is a direct correlation to when Trudeau forgot Alberta while listing provinces and territories in his Canada Day speech, stating the PM should stay where he is – in not so politically correct terms. Others, if you can believe it, aren’t really bothered and understand the PM has other commitments.

The Prime Minister’s office added that the federal government will be proudly represented at events throughout Stampede as several ministers and MPs will attend, and confirmed that Trudeau will coming to Alberta at some point this summer.
