Young Activists Crash Press Conference to Confront Justin Trudeau on Climate Policy
On November 15, 2017, Hayley Zacks and Jake Hubley, two young climate campaigners from Vancouver, peacefully approached Justin Trudeau at a press conference and were promptly arrested.

As the two campaigners were removed from the press conference, Trudeau complimented them for their climate activism.
