Prime Minister Trudeau visiting Manitoba to promote budget

By The Canadian Press

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is visiting Manitoba Wednesday to promote his government’s new budget.

Trudeau is to meet with students in Winnipeg to highlight measures from the budget and to make an announcement on measures to help build a clean economy.

The Prime Minister is also scheduled to celebrate Passover with members of the Jewish community and meet with trade workers and apprentices.

The Liberals currently have three sitting MPs from Manitoba and a byelection must be called by June 11 for the Winnipeg South Centre riding after the death in December of Liberal MP Jim Carr.

Trudeau must also call a byelection by Aug. 27 in the southern Manitoba riding of Portage-Lisgar previously held by Conservative MP Candice Bergen, who resigned on Feb. 28.
