Evacuees in Manitoba driven from their homes by a massive recent snowstorm that cut off power to thousands said today they were annoyed by Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer's decision to campaign in Winnipeg today.

A few dozen people evacuated from rural Indigenous communities hit hard by the storm were in the lobby of the city's Radisson Hotel this morning, waiting for a Red Cross bus to take them to other temporary housing, when journalists following Scheer's campaign tour showed up for an afternoon policy announcement.

Several of the evacuees said Scheer's choice of venue for the announcement — in a city and a province that have declared states of emergency in the wake of a storm that left tens of thousands without power — was misguided.
