A look at what was said on the federal election campaign trail on Sunday

OTTAWA — Some selected quotes from the election campaign Sunday:

 

"If he's so bloody proud of it, why won't he show it to Canadians?" — NDP Leader Tom Mulcair on Prime Minister Stephen Harper not releasing the full text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

"He showed up with two weeks left to go in the campaign. It's like trying to bluff your way through a poker game when everybody can actually see you're only holding a pair of deuces." — Mulcair on Harper's negotiating position in the Trans-Pacific Partnership talks.

___

"This is not a popularity contest, like America's Got Talent. This is who can best protect our economy going forward, who can protect the economic gains that Canada has made." — former Conservative cabinet minister John Baird.

"Elections have consequences. The polls are close. Justin Trudeau could become prime minister and people have got to think about the consequences of that, for themselves and their family."  — Baird.
