OTTAWA — Stephen Harper and NDP Leader Tom Mulcair took dead aim at Justin Trudeau on Saturday as federal election campaign entered its final 48-hour sprint.

At a boisterous rally in Laval, Que., the Conservative leader said the Liberal leader was in charge of a party that has deficits in its DNA, and warned that change for the sake of change would hurt the economy,

In British Columbia, Mulcair linked the Liberal sponsorship scandal to the revelation this week that Dan Gagnier, a member of Trudeau's inner circle, offered lobbying advice on an energy project.

Campaigning in the Maritimes, Trudeau exhorted his followers to get out the vote on Monday to push Harper out of 24 Sussex once and for all.

With polls suggesting the Liberals have been leading, Trudeau found himself being asked about what he would do in the initial days of his mandate should he become prime minister.

He said one thing he would do is call U.S. President Barack Obama to address the fact Harper has soured that relationship in the last decade.
