The visit comes just two days before Canadians head to the polls to elect their local Member of Parliament as polls show a tight two-horse race between the Liberals and Conservatives.
A Nanos poll released Friday showed the Liberals take a slight lead, with 32.6 per cent of respondents saying they would consider voting Liberal while 30.3 per cent said they'd vote Conservative.
Edmonton Mill Woods and Edmonton Centre are two of just three Alberta ridings that went Liberal in the 2015 election.
Analysts predict the Edmonton ridings will be close battles. In 2015, Sohi won Mill Woods by just under 100 votes.
