Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau has outlined infrastructure, export development and entrepreneurship among key points of his party’s economic platform going into the 2015 federal election.

Trudeau is in Montreal on Friday afternoon to attend a luncheon with the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal along with Mayor Denis Coderre. CBCNews.ca is carrying his speech live.

In a speech delivered mostly in French to business representatives, Trudeau criticized the Conservatives for their reliance on the oil sector and not doing enough to benefit the middle-class. He promised that the Liberals will offer an alternative to allow the middle class to succeed.

“Our economic vision will aim to strengthen the prosperity of the middle class and create long-term growth in key areas,” he said.

Earlier this month, Trudeau delivered a speech in Calgary on the environment and the economy. 

Meanwhile, NDP Leader Tom Mulcair is visiting a daycare and mosque in Mississauga, Ont., on Friday.
