Two of the three major party leaders campaigned on the west coast while the other was joined by a former PM in Hamilton.
Conservative Leader Stephen Harper jet setting on Sunday as he made a stop in in Stittsville a suburb of Ottawa, on Sunday.
Selling his plan to lower tax rates for small business, Harper promised a plan which would provide 2.7 billion dollars in tax relief for close to 700 business owners.
Soon after the PM flew cross country to Penticton, B-C, to open up the new riding of South Okanagan-West Kootenay.
N-D-P Leader Tom Mulcair was in Vancouver promising to spend 1.8 billion dollars over four years to help improve health care for seniors.
“Hospital beds and emergency rooms are filled with patients who would be better served by homecare or other options.” said Mulcair.
“This is why the NDP’s plan not only provides seniors with comfort and care in their homes, it will relieve pressure on hospitals to provide urgent care to those that need it.”
Meanwhile, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau teamed up with former Prime Minister Jean Chretien for a rally in Hamilton. Chretian says Stephen Harper, “shamed Canada”.
He referred to an open letter he sent to Stephen Harper that was published in various newspapers, in which he insinuated that Harper destroyed Canada’s international reputation as a peace-seeking, progressive and compassionate country.
Chretian was also not shy about taking a chunk out of NDP Leader Tom Mulcair either, he commented on N-D-P Leader Tom Mulcair’s agreeing to a policy of “50 per cent plus one,” when Quebec holds a vote on sovereignty. He believes Mulcair is trying to endear himself to separatists agreeing to a potential deal on a another vote.
“Everybody wants a new deal. My wife sometimes wants a new deal” quipped Chretian.
