Liberal leader Justin Trudeau coming to the Maritimes
Trudeau is expected to fly to P.E.I. for an event Monday at 6:30 p.m.
Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau is bringing his campaign to the Maritimes with stops in all three provinces planned for the next 24 hours.
Trudeau is expected to fly to Prince Edward Island for a campaign event in Summerside tonight, a place which has been a thorn in the side of P.E.I. Liberals.
Summerside is in the riding of Egmont, the only Conservative-held riding on the Island. Fisheries Minister Gail Shea holds that seat. The other three ridings in the province are controlled by the Liberals.
Early Tuesday morning, Trudeau will be in the riding of Cumberland–Colchester in Nova Scotia with Liberal candidate Bill Casey.
The two will host what the Liberals are calling a continental breakfast and conversation at the Royal Canadian Legion branch in Amherst starting at 7:30 a.m.
Trudeau will be the last of the main federal party leaders to visit Nova Scotia. Trudeau last visited Halifax on April 15, before the election was called.
Green Party Leader Elizabeth May and NDP Leader Tom Mulcair were both in Halifax at the end of August.
Conservative Leader Stephen Harper was in Nova Scotia Aug. 16, also for an event in Amherst.
Announcement in Bouctouche
From Nova Scotia, it's off to New Brunswick for a late morning announcement in Bouctouche and an afternoon meeting with local residents on the wharf in Neguac.
Trudeau's public events end with a barbecue in Fredericton at the Charlotte Street Arts Centre.
