Canada PM Justin Trudeau dissolves Parliament, calls general election on October 21

Federal election campaign to kick off on Wednesday Canadian PM Trudeau formally launches campaign for October 21 election

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has emerged from Rideau Hall after visiting the Governor General and asking her to dissolve Parliament to begin the formal federal election campaign.

The election campaign will span 40 days, with Canadians set to vote on October 21.

Rounding out the slate are the nascent People's Party of Canada lead by Maxime Bernier, and, in Quebec, the Bloc Quebecois.

By the end, of course, the standings could be very different, with an unexpected champion.

The ruling was damning but it didn't appear to move the polls much in the Conservatives' favour, indicating that for them, this campaign is not just about explaining why Trudeau shouldn't be re-elected but also why they should.

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer is bound for Trois-Rivieres, Que., and then an evening rally in a Toronto suburb.

"Canada's Conservatives have been ready to go for months", said spokesman Simon Jefferies.

PlayStation Vue comes with one of the most premium lists of channels, unlike other streaming services. He changes angles a lot. "And then, that first shot he hits after he serves hurts you".

Climate change and affordability are predicted to be key campaign issues.

Justin Trudeau's decisive victory in 2015 restored his family to the national political stage and allowed Canadian voters to reclaim their country's liberal identity after almost a decade under Harper. "Conservative candidates in 2019 include Indigenous Canadians, LGBTQ+ Canadians, Muslims, Sikhs, Jewish Canadians, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, and new Canadians including those who immigrated in the 2000s", according to the Conservative Party's website.

Expect to see a lot of Singh in the Hamilton area.

The NDP launched its campaign Wednesday in London, Ont., one of the regions of the province where New Democrats think they'll be able to hold onto seats.

But Quebec, where the orange star used to shine so brightly is a different matter. The Conservatives are pouring unprecedented resources into taking seats away from both the NDP and the Bloc, and the Bloc has taken in recent days to poking at the Greens.

Mr Scheer, 40, formerly the youngest-ever speaker in Canada's House of Commons, took the helm of the right-leaning party in 2017. She's spent the summer shoring up the national campaign, though she'll launch it from the relatively friendly turf of Victoria, B.C. on Wednesday. They've said he'll proceed with cuts to spending similar to those made by Progressive Conservative Premier Doug Ford in Ontario. A Conservative win would be significantly CAD-positive and a Liberal minority supported by the NDP would be negative.

Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion's own investigation concluded in August that Trudeau's attempt to pressure ex-attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould to defer prosecution of SNC's bribery and corruption charges violated the Conflict of Interest Act.
