The RCMP have since said they too are being stymied in their pursuit of whether any criminal laws were broken for the same reason: the Trudeau government has refused to fully waive cabinet confidence to allow blanket access to documents, and for involved individuals to fully disclose what they know.

Meanwhile, Trudeau on Friday defended the approval of the controversial Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project and said his government had a "national climate plan that will reduce our emissions and hit our 2030 targets in a way that also includes getting a better price for our oil resources".

Trudeau met Thunberg privately before the march.

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau will have the campaign stage mostly to himself today as he reveals the bulk of his party's re-election platform.

"And of course (Trudeau) has a lot of responsibility and he's obviously not doing enough".

Scheer did not attend any of Friday's climate change action protests, unlike the federal leaders of the Liberal, NDP and Green Parties. "Just listen and act on the current best available science", said the young activist, who has become the voice and face of the global movement against climate inaction.

The Prime Minister said he thought that the 11 justices were wrong in their decision. Leadbeater told Sky News: "I think he probably got it wrong".

"No longer will a corrupt prime minister be able to be the gatekeeper of his own misconduct", said Scheer.

Thunberg, who took part in the Montreal march accompanied by Canadian indigenous leaders, addressed the protesters: "At least 500,000 (are) here today".

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer promised to prioritize the George Massey Tunnel replacement while campaigning in Coquitlam, B.C. on Friday.

The NDP's Jagmeet Singh is spending a fourth straight day in British Columbia, beginning with an announcement on coast protection in Ladysmith, on Vancouver Island, before heading to a climate march in Victoria.

Trudeau and Green Leader Elizabeth May are joining what is expected to be the largest of dozens of marches taking place across Canada. "This extraordinary young woman has called on the adults to do our job and keep the children safe".
