Liberal election campaign targets Gail Shea on P.E.I.
Shea is the only non-Liberal MP on P.E.I.
A visit by Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau to P.E.I. Monday focused on the west end of the province, and the only Island riding not held by a Liberal.
Trudeau was back on the Island for the second time in six months. Both visits had Summerside, where Conservative incumbent Gail Shea for Egmont has her riding office, as his focus.
"This is a really important election and I'm determined to win it," he told a crowd of supporters.
He also appears determined to sweep the seats on P.E.I. The Liberals held all four seats on the Island from 1988 to 2008, when Shea took Egmont. She won it again in 2011.
Robert Morrissey is running against Shea for the Liberals this time around, and he confirms Egmont is a target for his party.
"Mr. Trudeau has identified that Egmont is a priority of his, he would like to see Egmont returned with a Liberal MP," said Morrissey.
"He's been working closely with me and my campaign team on that."
Trudeau is the second of the federal leaders to visit P.E.I. during this election campaign.
