The first full day of the election campaign begins with an announcement from the party leader


The first full day of the Ottawa federal election campaign begins today with Justin Trudeau’s announcement in Quebec.

Liberal leaders will leave Longueuil, Ontario after a press conference at 10 am and make several stops along the way to Cobourg, Ontario.

Shortly after Trudeau’s morning announcement, NDP leader Jagmate Singh will make his own in Toronto-a liberal base where he wants to turn orange.

Conservative leader Erin O’Toole is sticking to Ottawa today, but he plans a “virtual phone town hall” with the Newfoundland, Labrador, and Ontario communities at night.

But he starts the day with what his team claims as a “major announcement.”

Governor Mary Simon disbanded Congress at Trudeau’s request yesterday morning, and voters headed for a poll on September 20.
