She put the loss down to the fact that Prime Minister Trudeau called a "snap byelection " in the riding, before she'd even been nominated as the candidate, which cost her a week of the five-week campaign . "I just think we didn't have enough time."

The byelection in South Surrey-White Rock is one of four across the country to be held on Dec. 11. It appears to be a seat that both the Liberals and Conservatives are closely watching.

Conservative Dianne Watts squeaked out a win over Liberal Judy Higginbotham in 2015 by just over 1,400 votes. The riding became vacant after Watts resigned to run for leader of the B.C. Liberals, which is a coalition of right-wing and centre-left politicians.

Trudeau has already visited the riding once before to campaign with Hogg. Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer is also expected to campaign for a second time with candidate Kerry-Lynne Findlay, the former National Revenue Minister, next week.

The prime minister said Hogg has been serving the community for over 40 years and he will be an extraordinary asset, not just to Surrey and White Rock, but to the federal government.

Justin Trudeau , Sophie Gregoire Trudeau and their youngest son Hadrien visited a seniors’ residence in Roberval, Quebec Thursday. The prime minister is campaigning ahead of a federal byelection in the Lac-Saint-Jean riding next week.

Trudeau touted government initiatives including the Canada child benefit and lowering small business taxes. He also touched on the environment, a key issue in B.C. given the Liberal government's support of the controversial Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.

"There are folks out there who think that it's a choice to make, either the environment or the economy," he said. "The only way to protect the environment is to make sure we have the capacity to invest in it and protect it."

Hogg said in his speech that he attended Semiahmoo Secondary School, where the event was held, and played on the basketball team.

"I'm hoping to join another team in Ottawa ... a team that is going to make a difference for this community and for this country, a team that is already showing great insight, great change and great compassion."
