Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer says he wasn't avoiding climate demonstrators when he went to a Cambridge hot dog stand for a bite to eat instead of the coffee shop where he was scheduled to stop.

Global climate strike demonstrators yelled chants of "no more oil, keep it in the soil" and cheered as cars honked outside the Melville Café, located at the University of Waterloo School of Architecture building in Cambridge on Tuesday afternoon.

But they quickly moved when word spread Scheer's bus had stopped at L.A. Franks, a popular quick-serve restaurant less than a kilometre away. By the time many of the demonstrators made it to the restaurant, Scheer was back on the campaign bus.
