Island blitz for Mulcair as leaders stay busy over long weekend

More signs that BC, and in particular Vancouver Island, is going to be a key battleground in Monday’s election.

NDP leader Tom Mulcair made a barnstorming tour through the Island over the long weekend, with stops in Victoria, Duncan, Nanaimo (photo above, courtesy NDP), and Courtenay

Mulcair highlighted First Nations Issues, the NDP’s child care plans, and support for municipal infrastructure.

Mulcair also spoke out against the Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal.

Green leader Elizabeth May is doing the same Tuesday in Nanaimo in an event featuring fellow Green leader James Shaw of New Zealand.
