Trudeau attended a campaign event at a high school in Surrey to support Gordie Hogg, a former member of the B.C. legislature and White Rock mayor.

"We made history in the last election by electing 17 British Columbia Liberal MPs for the federal Parliament," Trudeau told a crowd of supporters. "It was wonderful, but records are made to be broken and I think next Monday, we can break that record and make it 18."

Trudeau retail mania reaches fever pitch with calendar, full body onesie featuring PM

  Trudeau retail mania reaches fever pitch with calendar, full body onesie featuring PM Justin Trudeau currently finds himself at the top of Amazon’s Canadian History bestsellers list but it’s not for his memoir, Common Ground, which was released in 2014. Instead, the prime minister is featured in a 12-month wall calendar called My Canadian Boyfriend. Listed for sale by Universe Publishing on Oct. 3, the calendar’s description claims to be “a year-long celebration of dynamic, smart, compassionate, and sometimes sassy Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Justin Trudeau will be at a campaign event in Surrey supporting Gordon Hogg, a former member of the B . C . legislative assembly and White Rock mayor. The Prime Minister will be in British Columbia today to campaign for a Liberal candidate ahead of byelection in Greater Vancouver.

She put the loss down to the fact that Prime Minister Trudeau called a "snap byelection " in the riding, before she'd even been nominated as the candidate, which cost her a week of the five-week campaign . "I just think we didn't have enough time."

The byelection in South Surrey-White Rock is one of four across the country to be held on Dec. 11. It appears to be a seat that both the Liberals and Conservatives are closely watching.

Conservative Dianne Watts squeaked out a win over Liberal Judy Higginbotham in 2015 by just over 1,400 votes. The riding became vacant after Watts resigned to run for leader of the B.C. Liberals, which is a coalition of right-wing and centre-left politicians.

Trudeau has already visited the riding once before to campaign with Hogg. Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer is also expected to campaign for a second time with candidate Kerry-Lynne Findlay, the former National Revenue Minister, next week.

The prime minister said Hogg has been serving the community for over 40 years and he will be an extraordinary asset, not just to Surrey and White Rock, but to the federal government.

What do Monday's byelection results mean for Justin Trudeau , Andrew Scheer and Jagmeet Singh? But Monday's vote posed the first real test for Singh, who became leader after the kickoff of the last set of byelection campaigns in October.

Trudeau touted government initiatives including the Canada child benefit and lowering small business taxes. He also touched on the environment, a key issue in B.C. given the Liberal government's support of the controversial Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.

"There are folks out there who think that it's a choice to make, either the environment or the economy," he said. "The only way to protect the environment is to make sure we have the capacity to invest in it and protect it."

Hogg said in his speech that he attended Semiahmoo Secondary School, where the event was held, and played on the basketball team.

"I'm hoping to join another team in Ottawa ... a team that is going to make a difference for this community and for this country, a team that is already showing great insight, great change and great compassion."

Surrey is the fastest growing city in Metro Vancouver and it is home to a large South Asian population and many young families.

"That is my hope for the result of this byelection," she said. "We're going to do everything we can to support him and his team to hopefully win a victory on Dec. 11."
