Where the Leaders Were This Week· October 2, 2015
Stephen Harper – The Conservative leader only had a handful of stops this week as he prepared for the Munk Debate and filmed campaign ads. He made appearances in Vaughan and Quebec City.
Thomas Mulcair – On Sunday, the NDP leader announced he would repeal Bill C-24, which allows dual nationals to be stripped of Canadian citizenship if they’re convicted of spying, treason or terrorism. After the Munk Debate, he went to Iqaluit where he promised $100 million to replace diesel generators with clean energy in northern and remote communities.
Justin Trudeau – While in Winnipeg, the Liberal leader announced $900 million to boost high-tech innovation and fund startup incubators. This was on the heels of Mulcair’s letter to the CEOs of Hootsuite and Shopify about NDP policy on exercising stock options and its potential effect on early startup employees. At a Surrey seniors centre, Trudeau promised longterm funding for improved health care. In Pointe-Claire, Trudeau announced a plan to finance Montreal public transit projects.
