Justin Trudeau’s Visit to MonctonOn April 9, 2023 by jmweb
On Friday, March 31st, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited New Brunswick where he had a few stops in Moncton and Dieppe. After a crazy busy week, probably my busiest, I woke up Friday morning and immediately went over to Moncton where the first announcement was taking place at Oulton College Dental School. I was tasked with creating imagery for Reuters.
From Oulton College, we went to the Atlantic Cancer Research Institute a quick 10 minutes away. I ended up filling and waiting till the next timing happened. Eventually, we made it into the facility where the Prime Minister completed his tour.
After visiting the lab, Ron Ward spent some time explaining the old hospital to me. The friendly Canadian Press freelancer in Moncton was explaining a bit of history of the hospital and how the old hospital is now the lab.
This is where I’d capture the most popular photograph from Justin Trudeau taken in the past 30 days (outside of United States of America’s President Joe Biden’s visit to Canada) for Reuters.
I happen to bring a longer lens as I was completely unfamiliar with the Town Hall concept that they were hosting. I had never photographed or been privy to one, until now. After the Town Hall in Dieppe, New Brunswick, it was back to Prince Edward Island where I spent the night before heading on to Halifax, Nova Scotia the next morning. The craft beer festival was taking place the night before I was to dive into some important business meetings.
