Prime Minister Justin Trudeau plans to tour White Rock Wednesday afternoon.
Trudeau will be touring the Five Corners neighbourhood at approximately 1 p.m., visiting Laura’s Coffee Corner (15259 Pacific Ave.) and Five Corners Cafe (1173 Johnston Rd.).
His visit comes on the heels of a byelection for the federal South Surrey-White Rock seat, left vacant by former Conservative MP Dianne Watts who is now in a provincial leadership bid for the BC Liberals.
The Liberal Party of Canada announced former White Rock mayor/MLA Gordon Hogg as its candidate for the South Surrey-White Rock seat on Nov. 7. On Monday, the Conservatives selected former minister of national revenue Kerry-Lynne Findlay.
No other candidates were declared as of Tuesday afternoon.
The byelection takes place Dec. 11.
