(June 23) SOUNDBITE: Natural Sound PLACELINE: Drummondville, Quebec; Monteal CREDIT: The Canadian Press STORYLINE: Justin Trudeau greeted crowds at public events in Quebec to celebrate the Fete Nationale holiday on Saturday, where a day of smiles and selfies was briefly interrupted by an angry protester who confronted the prime minister in his own riding.

The incident occurred at a Fete Nationale event at a Montreal park, where a bearded man in a white shirt appeared to object to the prime minister's presence at a holiday that has historically been associated with Quebec nationalism.

"You came to speak English to us?" the man asked in French.

"Isn't your party next week?" The man then suggested Trudeau had come to "bother us at home," to which Trudeau replied, "I am home."
