The marathon election campaign is on its last leg, and federal leaders are rolling into the BC battleground this weekend to make their last ditch efforts to sway impressionable voters.
At Burnaby North-Seymour NDP candidate Carol Baird Ellan’s campaign office in Burnaby, NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair downplayed any notions that it isn’t still a three-way race.
“They’ve always said the same thing, ‘You have no choice in Canada, you’re supposed to alternate between Liberal corruption and Conservative corruption’. This time, there is a three-way race, this time there is hope, this time we will put in an NDP government on October 19th.”
Recent polls suggest Mulcair’s NDP are trailing in third behind the Liberals and Conservatives, but Mulcair says he’s still focused on an NDP government.
“My job as leader of the New Democratic Party of Canada is to take on Stephen Harper, to defeat him on Monday October 19th, and replace him with an NDP government. That’s my only priority between now and Monday.”
Mulcair also attacked the Liberals after it was learned campaign co-chair Dan Grenier gave advice to a pipeline company on how to lobby a federal government.
