REGINA — Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer is in his political hometown of Regina using the waning hours of the election to campaign against a longtime Liberal.

Scheer headed this morning to the riding belonging to Liberal cabinet minister Ralph Goodale, who has been in politics for nearly 45 years, the majority of them at the federal level.

But his seat is one of many Liberal seats the Conservatives are hoping to seize today as part of their push towards forming government.

Several of the most senior people in the Conservative party were alongside Scheer for a get-out-the-vote effort in Goodale’s riding.

The polls have the Conservatives and Liberals running neck-and-neck nationally, but in some regions — like Quebec — the Conservatives are no longer showing as much support as they’d hoped.

Later today, Scheer will cast a ballot in his home riding of Regina—Qu’Appelle, which he has represented in the House of Commons since 2004.
