BELLEVILLE  – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau answered questions about mental-health issues, immigration, national security, the environment and protecting agriculture during a town hall session at the Empire Theatre [2] Thursday.

The theatre was filled to capacity for the event.

The visit, part of Trudeau’s cross-Canada tour beginning with an east-to-west trip along Highway 401 [3], followed stops earlier Thursday in Kingston and Napanee. After his appearance at the Empire Theatre, Trudeau was to attend an honour guard [4] at Canadian Forces Base Trenton [5]. He was to spend the night at the base before continuing to his next stop, in Northumberland County, on Friday morning. 

A team from QNet News was at the Empire Theatre and covered the event live.
