Liberal Party Leader Justin Trudeau will kick off his day in Markham tomorrow at the WinCo Food Mart.

Trudeau will deliver remarks about the Liberals' plan to make life more affordable for the middle class, according to a media advisory.

Liberal candidate for Markham–Unionville, Alan Ho, Liberal candidate for Markham–Stouffville, Helena Jaczek and Liberal candidate for Markham–Thornhill, Mary Ng, will join him at the food mart on Highway 7.

Markham is considered an important battleground for the Liberals in the federal election campaign, with incumbent and former minister Jane Philpott running as an Independent in Markham-Stouffville. Philpott served as health minister, Indigenous services minister and president of the Treasury Board before resigning from cabinet over Prime Minister Trudeau’s handling of the SNC-Lavalin controversy. She was later forced out of caucus.

Former Ontario health minister Helena Jaczek, who represented the former provincial riding of Oak Ridges-Markham, is running for the Liberals in Markham-Stouffville.

The Markham-Unionville riding is represented by Conservative Bob Saroya.
