Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau says his party will grow the economy not from the top down like the governing Conservatives, but from the "heart outwards."
Speaking at a farmers market in Regina, Trudeau said putting more money in the pockets of the middle class is the ticket for his party to win more support in Saskatchewan, where it only holds one seat.
Trudeau focused his speech primarily on Conservative Leader Stephen Harper, noting Canada is the only G7 country in a recession.
He repeated promises that a Liberal government would focus on tax breaks and child benefits for people who need them the most, while asking the wealthy to pay more.
He says Liberals would remain committed to balancing the budget, but how long that would take would depend on how big of a "mess" the Conservatives have created.
Trudeau also criticized NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair, saying his idea to create a national minimum wage wouldn't help 99 per cent of Canadians.
The Liberal leader said Mulcair promises to help the middle class, but "won't lift a finger" to do anything meaningful.
