Justin Trudeau

Liberal leader plans stop in area

Rossland Mayor Greg Granstrom announced there is a plan in the works to bring the Liberal leader to Rossland later on Monday.

Justin Trudeau, federal Liberal leader, will be stopping by to visit the Silver City next week and he could also be making his way to the Golden City.

Trudeau and his family will be at Gyro Park in Trail on Monday at 2 p.m. for a meet and greet said Norm Casler, executive director for the Trail and District Chamber of Commerce in a press release.

As well, Rossland Mayor Greg Granstrom announced Monday night in city council chambers that there is a plan in the works to bring the Liberal leader to Rossland later in the day.

Trudeau, wife Sophie and his two children have embarked on a cross-Canada motorhome trip this summer, said Dan Ashman, president of the Southern Interior Liberal Riding Association.

Trudeau will be shaking hands, but not giving a speech for what is meant to be a bipartisan event, he added.

The Trudeau family will continue their vacation after the event, travelling further west to Kelowna.

Although Trudeau’s official itinerary is yet to be released at time of press, his press secretary in Ottawa, Kate Monfette, did confirm to the Trail Times that he will be in B.C. from July 21 to July 25.

All is still subject to changes, and times and locations are not finalized, she said.

The Trudeaus’ will also stop in Cranbrook and Nelson on Sunday for a casual “coffee in the park” appearances.
