Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took in the sights, sounds and, hopefully, some of the flavours of the Richmond Night Market on Saturday as he toured parts of B.C. for the long weekend.
Trudeau, who had been vacationing with his family in Tofino last week, visited the market for the first time “to help celebrate our B.C. Day long weekend and sample some of our delicious food offerings at the International Food Fair and Summer Seafood Festival,” according to a Richmond Night Market press release.
Along with enjoying photo opportunities in the night market’s crowd, the prime minister also gave a brief speech, highlighting the B.C. Day long weekend and Food Day Canada.
“As you go around these stalls, just know that as you’re sampling dim sum and sticky buns and food from all around the world, know that you are eating Canadian food because Canada is a country that draws together people from all over the world,” Trudeau said in his speech.
