OTTAWA—Prime Minister Justin Trudeau rallied Liberal candidates Wednesday, saying the coming election will be a choice between "cuts and austerity or investing in Canadians" as he pointedly warned that the middle class "cannot afford another Doug Ford."

While the Ontario premier has vowed to stay out of the federal campaign, Trudeau and other Liberal candidates are only too happy to highlight the controversial cuts implemented by the Progressive Conservative government at Queen's Park and suggest that the federal Conservatives would take a similar approach if elected in October.

"On the campaign trail, conservative politicians love to say that they are 'for the people' but we all know too well what happens once they're in office," Trudeau said, citing Ford's 2018 election slogan.
