Federal Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau is scheduled to arrive in Creston on Sunday as part of a summer whirlwind tour around Canada.

“Justin and his family will be arriving in Creston for a short visit at 2 p.m. on Sunday,” organizer Bill Truscott said on Tuesday.

They will appear at Truscott Farms and the public is invited. Trudeau will be moving on to Nelson afterward, and will make an appearance in Trail on Monday.

Trudeau, 41, has represented the Montreal riding of Papineau, where nearly half the population claims neither English nor French as its mother tongue. As a member of Parliament, Trudeau’s responsibilities have included the Liberal party critic for youth, post-secondary education, amateur sports, multiculturalism, citizenship and immigration. He also sat on the parliamentary committee on the environment and sustainable development and citizenship and immigration.

A schoolteacher by profession, Trudeau was elected leader of the Liberal Party of Canada in April. He succeeded Michael Ignatieff, who led the party to disastrous results in the 2011 election.
