Liberal leader Justin Trudeau focused on NAFTA and stopping Conservative cuts during his second election visit to Windsor Monday.
“The only way to stop these Conservative cuts is to vote Liberal because just like the NDP couldn’t stop (former Prime Minister) Stephen Harper or (Ontario Premier) Doug Ford, they can’t stop Andrew Scheer,” Trudeau said as he started Thanksgiving Day in downtown Windsor before heading to Tilbury, London and other Ontario spots to campaign.
With a week left before the Oct. 21 election day, Trudeau stood with Windsor-Tecumseh candidate Irek Kusmierczyk, Windsor West candidate Sandra Pupatello and Essex candidate Audrey Festeryga at the St. Clair College for the Arts with the Detroit skyline as his backdrop.
Trudeau said the Liberal government made significant investments in the Windsor area, stood up to U.S. president Donald Trump and punitive steel and aluminum tariffs, and secured a good trade deal with the United States.
“When our neighbours to the south said we want to rip up NAFTA we promised we’d have your back. You know what? We got the job done.”
When national and local media got a chance to ask questions, Trudeau didn’t want to talk about the possibility of a coalition government. NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh has talked about a coalition if the Conservatives win.
