Justin Trudeau swarmed at Toronto mall

The Prime Minister of Canada sure is popular. If you don't believe that just take a look at what happened on Wednesday when he tried to visit Bridlewood Mall in Scarborough.

Trudeau was scheduled to appear there for a routine meet and greet but was swarmed by a massive crowd of over 500 people before he even had a chance to reach the food court.

Apparently the massive turnout was unexpected and the PM was escorted out by security personnel within a span of about three minutes.

The stop coincided with Trudeau's visit to Toronto to announce the National Housing Strategy which looks to invest over $30 billion into Canada's housing over the next 11 years.
