OTTAWA – Trudeau part deux will hit the Manitoba capital Thursday.
Justin Trudeau will be in Winnipeg for the first time since assuming the helm of the Liberal Party of Canada last month. He plans a stop to speak with students at Sisler High School, and will meet with members of the public in the afternoon at the food court in the TD Centre downtown.
Trudeau, 41, earned a massive victory over five opponents in the leadership race which concluded April 14th in Ottawa.
Recent polls suggest he has a certain appeal with voters, and many believe his arrival has at the very least shaken up the political scene in Canada.
However his popularity in Manitoba, and the other prairie provinces, is not as high.
Most polls still show the Liberals trailing the governing Conservatives by a significant margin in Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
Trudeau visited the city just once during the leadership race, but ended up winning the most votes in each of the 14 ridings.
