NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh is spending his Sunday in B.C., starting in Burnaby where he'll vote in an advanced poll before moving on to Surrey for a rally, and then to Port Moody for a volunteer blitz event.
Despite climate change being front-and-centre this election campaign, the Green Party aren't seeing a surge of support with the biggest drop coming in Atlantic Canada where they are down to just 12 per cent. Trudeau - sleeves rolled up and not wearing a jacket - did not appear to be wearing a protective vest and security kept its distance compared with the tight circle they formed around him on Saturday.
The police officers made a point of standing on the stage surveying the crowd while Trudeau spoke and remained close by his side after his speech as the Liberal leader shook hands with members of the crowd before leaving the room. But the left-leaning New Democrats (NDP) are gaining and could end up with the balance of power.
Trudeau eventually did make it onto the stage, greeting the more than 2000 Liberal supporters, as heavy RCMP and Mountie presence ensured safety at the event.
According to Sunday's daily tracking survey from Nanos Research, the Liberals and Conservatives are deadlocked at 32 per cent support each.
"If you want to stop Conservative cuts, you have to elect a progressive government, not a progressive opposition", he said.
Trudeau didn't mention Singh by name during the rally inside a packed hotel ballroom.
Polls show the Liberals are tied with the official opposition Conservatives of Andrew Scheer, who on Sunday said that if he won on October 21 he would quickly move to end what he called government subsidies to rich corporations. Mr. Ahmad declined to comment on the change of plans.
Scheer was firm when asked about whether he planned to keep all his platform promises - "absolutely", he said - and named the two men who would lead a commission to find $1.5 billion in cuts to corporate subsidy programs - former British Columbia finance minister Kevin Falcon and former Via Rail CEO Yves Desjardins-Siciliano.
Conservatives "feel personal attacks and lying to Canadians is the only way they can get elected", Trudeau said.
"The pipeline is very important to me", he said, "but not having a Tory in that seat and not having a Tory government is more important to me".
