Accordingly what will likely be the last PMO-issued advisory for the next five weeks - and, depending on how the ballots fall out, very possibly the last to be issued for the 23rd prime minister, period - he'll make his way to Rideau Hall for the traditional pro forma sit-down with Governor General Julie Payette at 10 am EDT.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau formally kicked off what promises to be a grueling election campaign as he contends with sinking popularity and surging challengers on all sides.

Justin Trudeau says Canadians get to vote for the kind of Canada they want to live in next month - by giving his party another term, or taking a step back with the Conservatives.

Trudeau kicks off his campaign with a rally in the Vancouver-Kingsway riding on September 11.

The NDP, led by Jagmeet Singh, is in the third place, on roughly 13-14 per cent support. "Quebecers can only rely on us, Bloc members of Parliament will always be powerless spectators".

Before jumping on his own campaign plane this morning, a fired-up Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer said the story showcases his belief that Trudeau has lost the moral authority to govern. A Conservative win would be significantly CAD-positive and a Liberal minority supported by the NDP would be negative.

The Conservatives held 99 while the New Democrats had 44.

Iran to release captured British tanker
A tanker suspected of trying to deliver Iranian oil to Syria in defiance of worldwide sanctions has now sold its cargo, Iran says. "We had already announced that we would sell our oil in any way and that acts of sabotage would not affect our plans", he added.

The prime minister, who is admired overseas for his progressive policies but plagued by scandals at home, faces a test of his popularity this campaign season.

Concerns over affordability, health care, climate change and ethics are at the fore.

"We are going to stand firm".

Maxime Bernier joins People's Party star candidate Renata Ford at her Etobicoke campaign office.

"There's no climate emergency in this country", said the former Conservative MP and leadership runner-up, whose nascent party is running at about three per cent in the polls. "I'm not appealing to (Canadians) emotions, we are appealing to their intelligence".

In June, a survey released by Nanos showed that ethics would be one of the biggest issues this federal election.
