One of the front runners for the federal Liberal leadership made a stop in Saskatoon Tuesday.
Justin Trudeau took the stage in front of Liberal supporters to bring his message of change for the struggling party.
While change was a hot topic, he didn’t waste time taking shots at the current Harper government.
“Conservatives hate to let facts get in the way of a good ideologically, electorally useful, argument,” the leadership candidate said.
Long-time MP Ralph Goodale announced his support for Trudeau’s bid for leadership during the noon rally. Trudeau said he hopes Goodale’s support will help him with Western issues.
“I’ve very proud of the strong role Ralph has played in speaking up for Western farmers,” Trudeau said.
Considered young by Canadian political standards, Trudeau made a strategic stop at the University of Saskatchewan
Seen by some as a celebrity, Trudeau is following in his father’s footsteps, who’s extreme popularity in the late 1960’s was dubbed “Trudeau-mania”.
