Canada's Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development is speaking out about a possibly discriminatory incident he says took place at Detroit Metro Airport in 2017.
"I went through all the security checks without revealing my identity as a minister," he told La Presse. "I did it knowingly, as is my habit, to understand better what ordinary people are going through when they sometimes have trouble getting along with people in a position of authority."
