Canada election 2015: Where the leaders are Friday
The Liberals will be pushing for votes in British Columbia today, with party leader Justin Trudeau starting in Burnaby with a morning speech before hiking up North Vancouver's Grouse Mountain for the benefit of the cameras.
Trudeau will visit the new riding of Burnaby South, where the Liberals can expect a tough race against the NDP, and North Vancouver, which is held by Conservative Andrew Saxton.
Trudeau's pledge to ban tanker traffic from parts of the B.C. coastline was overshadowed by the announcement late Thursday that his candidate in the Vancouver-area riding of South Surrey-White Rock had quit over Facebook posts about marijuana and cancer.
