Canada's Justin Trudeau calls general election on October 21

The excitement had been palpable Wednesday with all parties eager to get going on convincing Canadians their path is the right one to choose come the October 21 vote. We need a planet for our kids and their kids to live on. Trudeau will do only three of the five debates.

In fact, it seemed that it wasn't just Liberal supporters that had the Prime Minister's back on Twitter, but several Conservative voters too.

Trudeau will start stumping in British Columbia for a rally in the NDP-held riding of Vancouver-Kingsway while Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer is bound for Quebec and then an evening rally in a Toronto suburb. The NDP released a fact sheet that accused Scheer of consistently going "to bat for corporate friends", including a meeting with SNC-Lavalin's CEO past year. A Conservative win would be significantly CAD-positive and a Liberal minority supported by the NDP would be negative.

"Has your account been hacked?" his former cabinet colleague Stephanie McLean responded.

A handful of protesters, bearing a hand-written "Stop Scheer" sign, dogged Conservative leader Andrew Scheer at his campaign launch in Trois Rivières.

Members of the media inspect the wing from Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau's campaign plane after being struck by the media bus following landing in Victoria, B.C., on Wednesday, Sept.11, 2019.

"All my love and all my thoughts to everyone touched by the tragedy", May said. One Canadian explained, "I am not voting Liberal in this election".

In response to a question from a reporter about a candidate's views on separatism, May reminded Canadians that "first and foremost we are Earthlings".

Ficken was originally signed as a free agent by the Jacksonville Jaguars after going undrafted in the 2015 NFL Draft. It began in March when the Jets opted not to sign Jason Myers , who made the Pro Bowl for them a year ago.

Other competitors include Jagmeet Singh, leader of the New Democratic Party in Canada, and Elizabeth May of the Green Party of Canada.

While he picked "Choose Forward" as his campaign slogan, Trudeau began it forced to look back on a past controversy, the SNC-Lavalin affair. He contends that the federal government has given out the "largest and most expansive waiver of cabinet confidence in Canada's history".

"We respect the decisions made by our professional public service, we respect the decision made by the clerk", Trudeau said in response to a followup question about where the buck stopped, if not with him.

She precipitated a crisis for Trudeau's government last winter with allegations she had been inappropriately pressured by the prime minister, his office, other ministers and bureaucrats to end the criminal prosecution of Montreal engineering giant SNC-Lavalin. "Economic growth, job creation, wage growth, all were stalled thanks to a Conservative government that believed cuts and austerity were the answer to everything", Trudeau said.

He was asked by the Globe and Mail about why the Liberal government has refused to waive cabinet confidentiality so RCMP can investigate the case.

The SNC scandal shows that Canadians should be looking for a change of government, Scheer said.

"Justin Trudeau having the advantage on this is actually critical for the upcoming election", Nik Nanos, chairman of Nanos Research, said in a telephone interview. "What today shows is you just can not trust Justin Trudeau", said Scheer.
