Justin Trudeau participates in Montreal’s annual Greek Independence Day Parade

Twenty-four hours ago, Justin Trudeau was walking through a sea of supporters at the Halifax Seaport's Farmers Market – but Sunday, he was parading alongside Montrealers in the annual Greek Independence Day Parade.

Trudeau was back in his riding of Papineau to walk in the parade, alongside Quebec's Immigration Minister, Kathleen Weil, Public Security Minister, Martin Coiteux and Chomedy's MNA, Guy Ouellette, who was the parade's grand marshall.

The parade kicked off at 1 p.m. at the corner of Jean-Talon and Hutchinson streets.

For over 40 years, the Hellenic Community of Montreal has been holding events to celebrate the end of Ottoman rule in Greece.
