Justin Trudeau warns against Conservative cuts on second election visit to Windsor

At a campaign stop in Surrey on Sunday, Singh said he would "absolutely" be wiling to work with other parties to prevent a minority Conservative government.

Heading into the final week of the election campaign, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh campaigned at a popular Vancouver market on Thanksgiving Monday in a bid to capitalize on his new-found momentum, but deflected questions on a potential Liberal-NDP coalition a day after he opened the door to the possibility.

The New Democrats propose working with the provinces to get rid of an institution the party labels as undemocratic and unaccountable.

While Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer said his government will fund existing projects, TransLink's Mayors' Council has said the cuts risk uncommitted projects, such as the Broadway subway extension to UBC.

At the public market, Singh made stops at a fruit stand and cheese shop.

This is the first time Liam has been spotted with another woman since his split from Miley Cyrus earlier this summer. And while he's back in the dating pool, he's keeping things casual and focusing on his upcoming Hollywood projects.

Clinic 554, a family practice that also caters to transgender and LGBTQ needs, has become a flashpoint in New Brunswick, where the Progressive Conservative government is refusing to fund surgical abortion procedures at private clinics.

Trudeau, campaigning on the Canadian Thanksgiving holiday, noted the Liberals had overseen the successful negotiation of a new US-Mexico-Canada trade agreement a year ago. We are going to fight a Conservative government. I think Canadians want that.

Trudeau's comments come on the heels of a campaign event this weekend in Mississauga, where the incumbent prime minister was compelled to wear a bulletproof vest in the crowd and was flanked by an increased, unexplained security presence. Her late husband, Bob Kenny, was honorary campaign chair in 2015 but died before the election.

Trudeau also says Scheer's proposed $53 billion in cuts to services would undermine the economic benefits of the new NAFTA, which has yet to be ratified in either the USA or Canada. He will finish his day with a rally at a farmers market in Halifax. As a result, no new numbers for the daily tracking survey were released Tuesday morning.

Recent polls show the Liberals and Conservatives are virtually tied as the NDP and Bloc witness a sharp rise in support. The New Democrats were at 19 per cent, the Greens at 9 per cent, the Bloc Québécois at 6 per cent and the People's Party at 1 per cent. Respondents were asked: "If a federal election were held today, could you please rank your top two current local voting preferences?"
