OTTAWA -- Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is hitting British Columbia today as part of an outreach tour that will expand across the country.

He will be in Kamloops to meet with its mayor, Ken Christian, before meeting with two Indigenous leaders.

The prime minister will also be holding a town hall gathering with the public, held at Thompson Rivers University.

Since 2017, Trudeau has held town hall meetings in cities across Canada during winter months that resemble a campaign-style road tour.

He is also to deliver remarks to supporters at a Liberal fundraising event in Kamloops today.

The federal riding of Kamloops--Thompson--Cariboo is currently held by longtime Conservative MP Cathy McLeod and the Liberals are eyeing B.C. as a key battleground for the election in October.
