WINNIPEG — Federal election campaigning was in full swing tonight.

Canada’s Liberal Leader, Justin Trudeau, was in Winnipeg today, wrapping up his visit at the Punjab Cultural Centre on King Edward Street.

Roughly 400 people were in attendance, listening to Trudeau’s campaign promises in this year’s upcoming election.

Trudeau laid out a list of campaign promises if elected Prime Minister, including a hot button issue here in Manitoba.

Trudeau will launch a national inquiry into missing and murdered aboriginal women if he becomes the next Federal leader.

Trudeau says he will invest in the middle class and invest in Canada’s infrastructure.

“Our plan will give hard working Canadians a real chance at better incomes, more financial securities, and a more prosperous future.”

While blasting the Harper government for offering what he calls tax breaks to the wealthy.

“We need to be responsible, this means saying no for tax breaks for people who don’t need them and investing in the people who do.”

Also in attendance, Robert-Falcon Ouellette, who ran in last October’s mayoral race, finishing in third.

The soon to be liberal candidate for Winnipeg Centre welcomed Trudeau to the stage, where Trudeau backed Ouellette as the liberal candidate for the Winnipeg riding.

The federal election is set for this October.
