Trudeau will be appearing in Kamloops to drum up support for his re-election bid, in advance of the Oct. 21 federal election.

In October 2015, Trudeau’s Liberals unseated the Conservatives en route to a majority victory. While Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo Liberal candidate Steve Powrie finished third in the local race, he set a record for the most votes ever received by a Liberal candidate (21,215/30.4 per cent). The NDP’s Bill Sundhu was second with 21,466 votes (30.8 per cent) and Conservative Cathy McLeod won the riding with 24,595 votes (35.5 per cent).

Of the five parties that have pledged to run candidates in Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo in the October election — Conservatives, Liberals, New Democrats, Greens and People’s Party — only the Conservatives have confirmed a name, that being incumbent MP Cathy McLeod.
