Trudeau has become a hot topic of conversation again today, after being confronted by a fellow volunteer at a flood zone near Ottawa this weekend.\nThe video below shows a volunteer berate Prime Minister Trudeau for "holding up" volunteer efforts at the site due to the taking of photographs.\nTrudeau handled the confrontation in his usual fashion - he remained calm and talked a lot about listening to each other. While some people were impressed with the PM's handling of the situation, others are on side with the irate volunteer.\nREAD ALSO: Your Old Canadian Quarters May Now Be Worth $50,000\nTL;DR Trudeau has been getting some flak for his presence at a flood zone near Ottawa this weekend after another volunteer called the PM out for holding up sandbagging efforts.

Trudeau made an appearance to help out but also to be "briefed by emergency management officials," according to the CBC.\nReactions have been divided, as is the general opinion of the Prime Minister.\nTrudeau should of left his sons at home, not hinder the operations where time is important. Also touching the man who had a valid concern is very unprofessional. #SandBagDude #TrudeauMustGo— flang (@TorontoOiler) April 29, 2019\nJust stay out of the way @JustinTrudeau , let the grownups get the work done. I’m sure you find another place to stage, yet another, photo op!— Truth for Canadians (@truth4cdns) April 29, 2019\nWhile many people, like those above, agreed with the volunteer, it has since come to light that Trudeau's appearance didn't really hold up the volunteer efforts. The RCMP made a statement, which was shared on Twitter, that no trucks had been blocked by the PM's presence.\nFYI, RCMP confirmed to us on site that no trucks had been blocked. Trucks were pulling up one after the other to get sandbags while PM was there. I know because I helped put sandbags in some of those trucks. https://t.co/cVppL5cQXe— Philip Proulx (@phil_proulx) April 27, 2019\nWith this information, more people were on-side with Trudeau's presence at the volunteer site, though there was still some criticism.\n(Because there's always something to criticize, duh!)\nHe should have ignored, not engaged.And they should have vetted the people around him much better.That was an open, and honest exchange by two people from polar opposites of society.And it didn’t look good on the PM complaining about his security hardships.— Jordan Dundas 🌐 (@F_O_R_D_NATION) April 29, 2019\nOthers were more critical of the irate volunteer, who it could be argued did some "holding up" of his own by going off on the PM.\nHe didn't speak his mind he stood there and berated our PrimeMinister in front of his children for doing his JOB! and this ignorant old fart held up the whole process while holding up the white supremacist sign with his fingers. Trudeau wasn't holding up anyting that was a LIE.— reb B-H 🇨🇦🌊 (@reb_henderson) April 29, 2019\nOur Prime Minister handled him with class. The man was extremely rude and did not display any listening ability.— Nancy Nicholls (@nisobel) April 27, 2019\nAs I mentioned above, Trudeau seems very good at diffusing tense confrontations like the one seen above, so much of the reactions were just people being impressed with Trudeau managing to keep his cool in the face of the disgruntled volunteer.\nBTW our prime minister's job is to take photo ops speak to the media & encourage others to come out and volunteer. His job is not to fill sandbags but he did so very much unlike Ford or Sheer. It's appalling the petty things being Twisted in attempts to make JT look bad.— reb B-H 🇨🇦🌊 (@reb_henderson) April 29, 2019\nAlso, as the tweet notes above, politicians are expected to be present at emergency sites, not only to provide support but to also be briefed with information on the ground, as it is happening.\nTrudeau is certainly not the first politician to be present at a flood zone in the past week or so.\nThank you to all the first responders who have been working tirelessly to support residents affected by the flooding. And a very big thank you as well to all the volunteers that have been filling sandbags to help protect homes in this community. pic.twitter.com/YMBFTF9r8K— Doug Ford (@fordnation) April 26, 2019\nBelle mobilisation de nos élus ce matin pour prêter main forte aux bénévoles et cols bleus qui travaillent sans relâche #polmtl pic.twitter.com/EutRKiwbef— Valérie Plante (@Val_Plante) April 28, 2019\nIt's also silly to think that the Prime Minister would be present amongst all these volunteers and that the volunteers themselves wouldn't be hoping to get a photo with Trudeau while he was in their midst. Seems that would be expected.\nSo what do you think? Was Trudeau justified in being present at the flood zone site? Was the volunteer right in calling him out? And how do you think the PM handled the whole situation?
