Justin Trudeau showed his love for the bleu, blanc et rouge when he spotted somebody wearing a Quebec Nordiques' hat at a campaign stop in Winnipeg on Tuesday.

After announcing that a Liberal government would invest $200 million per year over the next three years in high-tech innovation, Trudeau spotted a man wearing a Nordiques' hat in the crowd.
"I'd love to bring them back, just so the Habs can kick their asses again," he told the man.
The man replied: "That's just the opposite, in fact."
"We'll have that argument in good due course, and I look forward to it," said the leader of the Liberal Party.
The exchange happened to come on the very day that a group from Quebec City is making presentations to the NHL in an attempt to land a franchise.
The group is meeting with the league's executive committee as well as its board of governors.
