TORONTO - Liberal leadership hopeful Justin Trudeau says now is not the time to lay out detailed policy.
Trudeau says he'll do that closer to the 2015 federal election.
Pressed today on when he would talk about specific ideas for the economy, Trudeau said he's been clear that the focus needs to be on helping the middle class.
But he says a leadership campaign is not a time to put forward a platform that the party would try to sell for the next two years.
He says it’s about gathering ideas to help develop that platform in time for the next federal vote.
Trudeau talked to some budding digital entrepreneurs at Ryerson University while campaigning in Toronto today. He is also delivering a keynote speech to a business audience in the city this afternoon.
Trudeau is the frontrunner heading into the Liberal leadership vote next month.
