Whether Garba dancing with Gujaratis in Brampton or tucking into dim sum at a Chinese restaurant in Richmond Hill, Alberta Premier Jason Kenney returned this weekend to the diverse cluster of GTA ridings he frequented as federal immigration minister under Stephen Harper, trying to rally support to the Conservative cause.

Just over two weeks before voting day, Kenney's presence underscored the crucial importance of this battleground region as the Conservatives and Liberals appear locked in a dead heat in most public polls.

To help lift his federal cousins to victory, the United Conservative premier brought his standard pitch to the GTA: Alberta is hurting, and anything less than a Conservative majority in Ottawa will just crank up the pain.
