Liberal leader Justin Trudeau returned to Halifax for a rally as the party made one last push in the Maritimes before Canadians head to polls on Monday.

Hundreds of people packed into the Brewery Market on Lower Water St. on Tuesday night, the last stop for Trudeau on another tour of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

He spoke for roughly 30 minutes, with a focus on criticizing the Conservatice party, claiming the opposition plans to cuts services across the board for Canadians.

Supporter Michelle Morgan said she's voting for the Liberals because she likes their track record.

"Everything he's done for the country, lowering the old age benefit to 65 from 67 and, having three kids of my own, the child tax benefit helps a lot," she explained. 

"For me, they're really the only progressive Canadian party that can run government," said Suzie Ketene, another supporter in attendence. "I enjoy some of the Green platform, I enjoy some of the NDP. I think the Liberals encompass a lot of those values and policies, and they can run government."

Halifax Liberal MP Andy Fillmore introduced Trudeau on Tuesday night. The Liberal leader's appearance comes as Fillmore finds himself in a tight race in his riding, with pollster 338canada.com showing a neck-and-neck battle with NDP candidate Christine Saulnier.
