During the first two town halls — in Lower Sackville, N.S. and Hamilton — the prime minister endured heckling and drew applause as he faced a broad range of questions on topics that covered everything from federal drug policy, to the Liberal government’s $10.5 million payment to Omar Khadr, to concerns over former ISIS fighters returning to Canada.
