While at a campaign stop Tuesday, Trudeau said he was not injured during the incident.

However, he reaffirmed that the “anti-vaccine mobs” will not prevent him from campaigning in person for these elections.

“No one should be doing their job under threats of violence or acts that put them in danger. That is absolutely unacceptable, ”he said.

“This is not how we do things in Canada, and frankly, as I continue the campaign, I am inspired by those people who continue to do the right thing in the face of anti-vaccine mobs, who do not respect the basic science and basic decency that Canadians they have come to expect rightly. “
