The Liberal Party has apologized to a journalist who was booted from one of Justin Trudeau's public rallies in Thunder Bay, Ont., on Wednesday.

Andrew Lawton, a conservative broadcaster who has worked in journalism since 2013, says despite the apology he's still fighting to get access to the kind of media events the party has barred him from this week, and he's at a loss to explain why he's been targeted.

"I actually take a great deal of pride in my career, that I have the relationships I do with people of all parties. I'm not someone who does stunts, I'm not someone who disrupts events. I'm not someone who protests. I like to have an honest dialogue," said Lawton.
