Trail is one of the next stops for Justin Trudeau’s cross-country vacation.
The federal Liberal leader is scheduled to appear at Gyro Park just after 12:30 p.m. Monday, a change in schedule recently made, where he’ll shake hands with the public before hitting the road again.
His family is making their way through the province, where many relatives live, said Dan Ashman, president of the Southern Interior Liberal Riding Association.
“It’s amazing, I’ve got to tell you my phone has been ringing off the hook,” said Ashman Thursday.
“People are saying, ‘Are you kidding? Justin Trudeau is coming here? I’ll be there.’”
Trudeau has a voice for the people, said Ashman, noting his teaching background, which isn’t the norm in politics.
“The democracy of our country, which is Canada, is a very important and cherished thing in our country but we’re not getting the engagement of the next generation meaning the X Y Generation, the younger people, and its’ really needed in order for us to sustain our democracy,” he added.
“This guys going to breath some new life in politics.”
