Trudeau calls federal election to begin formal campaign

Trudeau calls federal election to begin formal campaign”

The leaders of the NDP, Conservatives and Greens launched their campaigns Wednesday with some choice words about Canada's incumbent prime minister.

Justin Trudeau greets the Liberal supporters at an event where he joined Premier Kathleen Wynne for a by election rally to support provincial Liberal candidate Elizabeth Roy in Whitby-Oshawa's byelection campaign in 2016.

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 Tories are pressing Mr. Trudeau on the latest report in The Globe and Mail detailing how the RCMP is looking into potential obstruction of justice in the handling of the prosecution of the Quebec engineering giant but its examination has been stymied by the federal government's refusal to lift cabinet confidentiality for all witnesses.

Trudeau's father, Pierre Trudeau, swept to power in 1968 on a wave of support dubbed "Trudeaumania", but narrowly avoided losing the 1972 election just four years later.

Media and staff gathered outside of Rideau Hall, where the sun was shining after a rainfall Wednesday morning, and awaited the arrival of Mr. Trudeau. He said Trudeau has lost the moral authority to govern, and that the Prime Minister will continue to lie about SNC-Lavalin.

"He needs to do the right thing", Mr. Scheer said.

The charismatic Liberal prime minister who won a surprise landslide in 2015 on the promise of "sunny ways" for all Canadians will be battling to hold on to his parliamentary majority against untested adversaries across the political spectrum.

Reporters also asked Trudeau and Scheer about Bill C-21 in Quebec, which bans religious headwear the public-service sector. "And at this time I feel it would be counterproductive for the federal government to engage in this process".

Mr Scheer, 40, formerly the youngest-ever speaker in Canada's House of Commons, took the helm of the right-leaning party in 2017.

Trudeau has been admired by liberals around the world for his progressive policies in the Trump era, with Canada accepting more refugees than the United States. Sikand has since deleted the tweet.

In his remarks, Trudeau acknowledged the anniversary.

Trudeau, Leader of the Liberal Party, will have five and a half weeks to convince Canadians to give his government a second chance when they head to the polls on October 21.
