VIDEO: Trudeau Makes a Campaign Stop in Windsor


A sea of red in downtown Windsor Monday night.

Liberal leader Justin Trudeau made a campaign stop at St. Clair Centre for the Arts.

He is the first party leader to make a stop in Windsor.

Trudeau spoke for about 15 minutes and touched on a number of topics including NAFTA, manufacturing, transit and the Gordie Howe International Bridge.

He says the new NAFTA is a good a good example of the Liberals getting things done for Windsor.

"Windsorites understand more than just about anyone else, how truly integrated our economies are, with local plants like Fiat Chrysler, and many folks crossing the border every single day for work, eating breakfast in Canada, lunch in the US, then heading back to Canada for dinner." says Trudeau.

Trudeau added the Liberals have done a lot in the last four years but says the party is just getting started.

"While we were strengthening NAFTA’s labour protections, we were also funding transit from Halifax to Windsor to Calgary to Vancouver so people can actually get to their jobs on time," says Trudeau.

Trudeau was introduced by Windsor West Liberal candidate Sandra Pupatello.

He said Pupatello knows how to get big things done for Windsor and she is ready to fight for the city.

Former Liberal minister and current incumbent Chrystia Freeland was also on hand for the rally along with all local Liberal candidates.

It was her second time visiting the city in two weeks.

The federal election is October 21st.
