OTTAWA — Justin Trudeau kicked off the final week of the election campaign with stops in areas captured by his opponents in the last election — and a direct appeal to Conservative voters.
The Liberal leader said former Progressive Conservative governments have accomplished great things for Canada.
Trudeau said that conservatives across the country have told him they no longer see their values reflected by Stephen Harper’s Conservative party.
He made the remarks to Liberal supporters Monday in Ottawa as national polls suggest his campaign has been building momentum.
Trudeau told his supporters in a newly formed riding carved from a former Tory district that conservatives are their neighbours, cousins and parents.
The Liberal leader started Thanksgiving morning picking pumpkins with his wife and kids in the western Quebec riding of Pontiac — a seat the New Democrats won from the Conservatives in the last election.
Trudeau also said a Liberal government would introduce a tax cut for the middle class as its very first bill in Parliament.
