Trudeau helps raise Liberal hopes, profiles
Justin Trudeau helped spread a little Liberal love Tuesday morning on the Canada Line, where the incumbent Papineau MP was met by Richmond candidate Joe Peschisolido and other members of the party.
Trudeau took the time to greet and chat with commuters after hopping on the train at Vancouver International Airport. Flashing his trademark toothy smile, he told reporters he's committed to spending three days helping his Liberal colleagues raise their profiles during the 36-day pre-election period. The federal election is Monday, May 2.
He'd prefer to be hitting the pavement and knocking on doors in Papineau, he said, adding that he expects another tough fight for re-election.
As the Canada Line wound its way to downtown Vancouver, Peschisolido stood alongside Trudeau, who was recognized by riders and posed for photos. They were joined by Vancouver candidates Ujjal Dosanjh and Joyce Murray before stepping off at Waterfront Station.
