Two of the major party leaders made campaign stops in the Toronto area and the other spoke from Montreal at rallies on Monday.
PM Stephen Harper was in Markham at a Coptic church continuing his to elaborate on his plan to crackdown on homegrown terror threats.
In his speech he denounced the other leaders who support a plan to pull Canadian troops out of Middle East.
“Let me quote what the representatives of the diaspora groups of Canada said about that policy” said Harper “If your policy is humanitarian assistance without military support, all you’re doing is dropping aid on dead people.”
Harper, if re-elected, would introduce a travel ban on areas controlled by ISIS.
Meanwhile Liberal leader Justin Trudeau was in Montreal today, keeping his focus on the middle class and the so called recession in Canada. He criticized Harper for talking terror and avoiding talk on about an economic plan.
“We’re worried about the fact Mr. Harper has no plan to address it or get us out of it, so he’s looking for anything else to talk about.”
And N-D-P Leader Tom Mulcair’s book launch in downtown TO, interrupted, by protesters pressing him for a position on the Energy East pipeline.
While reading passages from his new autobiography “Strength of Conviction,” individuals flashed banners and yelled out asking if Mulcair would say no to the pipeline if it’s incompatible with national action on climate change.
“Of course we will. That’s what the whole purpose of coming in with a new system is, to make sure we take into account climate change whenever we analyze a project.”
Both Mulcair and Trudeau have said they don’t trust the current federal pipeline review process. They’ve promised to introduce what they call stricter and more thorough analyses of proposed energy projects, if elected.
TransCanada’s Energy East pipeline’s planned route goes through several provinces.
One protester returned during the book signing to posed for a photo with Mulcair.
