WINNIPEG — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will land in Winnipeg later this week for a town hall as part of his cross-Canada tour.

Trudeau will speak at the University of Winnipeg’s Duckworth Centre at 3:30 p.m. The original plan was for Trudeau to attend the Caboto Centre on Wilkes Avenue, but an overwhelming demand for tickets required a larger venue.

His grassroots tour is to allow Trudeau the opportunity to “remain connected with Canadians and engage with them across the country, at home in their communities.”

Before the town hall, Trudeau will visit with students at Robert H. Smith School.

Winnipeg is Trudeau’s only Manitoba stop along the tour, which began in Ontario earlier this year.

Tickets to the Winnipeg event can be requested online. A number of seats will also be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
