Federal Liberal leadership hopeful Justin Trudeau is back in Calgary on Tuesday where he is expected to discuss the Nexen takeover proposal.

Trudeau is also expected to be doorknocking with Calgary-Centre candidate Harvey Locke.

He was last in the city on November 3, one day after the son of the late Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau announced he would be running for party leadership.

Justin Trudeau recently made headlines for admitting that he is strongly in favour of a Chinese state-owned energy company’s effort to purchase Calgary-based Nexen.

In a column that was published on Monday, Trudeau said that China’s intentions in the deal are not ‘sinister’.

He did say that conditions should be attached to foreign investors, requiring them to abide by Canadian laws and operate in good faith.
