Two federal party leaders are back in the Brandon-Souris riding today.
Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau will be stopping at Sioux Valley Dakota Nation at approximately 3 p.m. to meet with students and community members at the elementary school.
Trudeau will then join a canvass blitz with Liberal candidate Rolf Dinsdale in Brandon at campaign headquarters (1300 18th St.) at 5:45 p.m., with a rally to follow at 8 p.m.
It will be Trudeau’s third visit to the Wheat City in about seven weeks. He was in Brandon on Sept. 24 and again on Oct. 11.
Meanwhile, federal NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair is back in town for the second time in just over two weeks. He was in Brandon Oct. 28, when he toured Behlen Industries.
Mulcair will tour the flood mitigation area with Mayor Shari Decter Hirst at Queen Elizabeth Park, before checking out Assiniboine Community College’s sustainable greenhouse at the North Hill campus.
Mulcair will then hold a public meet and greet at the Ukrainian Reading Hall with NDP candidate Cory Szczepanski at 5:30 p.m. Both Szczepanski and Mulcair will speak before opening the floor to questions in an informal setting.
