Canada election campaign to kick off Wednesday

Ottawa, Sept 11 (AFP/APP):Justin Trudeau on Wednesday will officially kick off what is set to be a grueling campaign for a second term as he takes on surging rivals in Canada’s October 21 national elections.

The prime minister is due to meet with Governor General Julie Payette at 10:00 am (1400 GMT) and ask her to dissolve parliament.

The election campaign can then officially begin, although political leaders and parties have already been wooing voters with pre-election ads, announcements and whistle stops in key battlegrounds across the country.
