Justin Trudeau's support of the Harper government's controversial anti-terror legislation is a decision that seems poised to follow him on the campaign trail this fall.

And a video posted online late last week offers a glimpse of how the Liberal leader may respond to his critics.

Trudeau has said for months that his Liberal MPs have backed Bill C-51 because they believe aspects of the bill will help keep Canadians safe. If Liberals form the government this fall, Trudeau says he will amend the legislation to, among other things, provide better oversight of national security agencies.

On Thursday, Trudeau was at an Edmonton banquet hall for the launch of city councillor Amarjeet Sohi's campaign for a Liberal omination in the riding of Edmonton Mill Woods—Beaumont.

Outside, some protesters from the social justice group The Council of Canadians called on Trudeau to "kill the bill." C-51 has already passed the House of Commons and is expected to clear the Senate soon.

In a 12-minute video posted to YouTube, Sohi, Edmonton Centre Liberal candidate Randy Boissonnault, and Trudeau are all shown directly engaging with the protesters.
