Recent polls show the Liberals bouncing between second and third, but Sheehan and Bennett believes Canadians are realizing the Liberal message.
Bennett has served her riding for 18 years and named Minister of State for Public Health under the Paul Martin Liberal government. Before politics she was a family physician and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the University of Toronto.

Both Bennett and Sheehan talked about the promised infrastructure spend and believe a deficit is needed to help create jobs and grow the economy,
