Prime Minister Trudeau To Tour Fort Hills, Meet With Local First Nations and Métis Communities

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is going to be in our region Friday.

Trudeau is scheduled to meet with employees of Suncor’s Fort Hills facility north of Fort McMurray in the morning, followed by a roundtable discussion with energy sector leaders in the afternoon.

Last year, former Fort McMurray-Conklin MLA and Wildrose leader Brian Jean called onTrudeau to visit the oilsands after he said Canada needs to "phase the oilsands out, we need to manage our transition off of our dependence of fossil fuels."

Trudeau is also scheduled to meet with leaders from local First Nations and Metis communities.

On Thursday, the PM is touring western Canada with stops in Victoria and Vancouver where he’ll participate in a clean tech roundtable and meet with Canadian Coast Guard workers to discuss marine safety and spill prevention, before heading to Fort McMurray.

This is his first visit to the region since the 2016 wildfire.
