“(Today) isn’t just a day for politics,” Trudeau said before passing the microphone to his wife. “This is also a day for families.”

Sophie Grégoire got the crowd roaring when she recognized Canada’s value for diversity.

“Canada ne to celebrate its diversity and strength. But… it’s in your sacrifices that you make through your jobs and your families that will allow us to create more equality…. so thank you from my heart to yours, we love you!”

Within the second minute of his five-minute speech, Trudeau brought up the name of his toughest competition in this election.

“Andrew Scheer looked at Doug Ford’s cuts and said, ‘hold my beer,’ because he’s choosing four times as much cuts as Doug Ford. That is not the approach we need for Canada.”

At this time, a protestor briefly interrupted Trudeau before being asked to leave by a campaign organizer.

Earlier this month, NDP leader Jagmeet Singh brought up the idea of a coalition with the Liberals to prevent the Conservatives from forming a minority government.

The Liberal leader made a campaign stop in Windsor prior to stopping by London, where he dodged multiple questions about a possible coalition.

Instead, he repeatedly responded that he remains focused on winning a majority, according to an article from Global News.

Trudeau did not take questions during his London rally, but he promised a bright future if the Liberals won.

“Canadians need a government that’s going to invest in kids and in our future. Canadians need a government… that invests in a better future for all, and that’s exactly what we are going to do!”
