Laura Payton (CBC News):
Trudeau was in the Calgary Confederation riding, one of the few ridings in the Alberta city with no incumbent candidate due to newly drawn boundaries. Liberal candidate Matt Grant and Conservative Len Webber will face off on Oct. 19 to represent the area. The NDP hasn’t yet nominated a candidate in the riding.
The federal NDP has been buoyed by the provincial party’s recent election in Alberta, which had seen only Progressive Conservative governments for decades, although the federal party has so far nominated only six candidates in the province.
But the Liberals have set their sights on several seats there, and Trudeau has paid particular attention to visiting the province since he became the Liberal leader in 2013.
