Justin Trudeau beat his 2015 Grouse Grind record today (PHOTOS)

Aug 30 2019, 3:19 pm

With the federal election less than two months away, it’s fitting that Prime Minister took his re-election campaign to the top of Grouse Mountain – and to get there, he completed the gruelling Grouse Grind trail.

Trudeau was spotted at the popular North Vancouver hike this afternoon, completing all 2,830 steps of Mother Nature’s stair master.

Trudeau also did the hike back in 2015, completing it in 54:55, where he used the footage in a campaign video promoting his “BC roots.”

His time today was 52:55.

Trudeau in Vancouver

Trudeau has had a busy few days in Vancouver. On Thursday, he met with BC Premier John Horgan to announce the federal government’s commitment to powering British Columbia’s liquefied natural gas sectors (LNG).

Then, in the afternoon, he was spotted in Richmond, at the T&T in Landsdowne Centre.

The surprise stop included giving mooncakes to some lucky shoppers and, naturally, plenty of selfies.

He then headed to a White Spot for some burgers and more photos.

Before the Grouse Grind today, Trudeau met with Vancouver Mayor Kennedy Stewart to discuss the city’s housing crisis, the ongoing opioid epidemic, and developing public transit.
