Federal Election to Begin on Wednesday

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will visit Rideau Hall on Wednesday morning to launch the 2019 federal election, with voting day set for Oct. 21.
Informally the campaign has been well underway for months, as the party leaders have been criss-crossing the country to get their messages out and attack their opponents. But Wednesday will mark the formal start of the writ period as Trudeau visits Governor General Julie Payette to start the process to dissolve Parliament.
