With that new-campaign-bus smell still fresh, federal party leaders are heading out for Day 2 of the 43rd general election.

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.

While he picked "Choose Forward" as his campaign slogan, Trudeau began it forced to look back on a past controversy, the SNC-Lavalin affair.

Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau launched his re-election campaign on Wednesday, saying that Canadians need to decide whether they want to return to the "failed policies" of a conservative government that believes in cuts and austerity.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks outside Rideau Hall in Ottawa on September 11, 2019. On the Quebec religious symbols law, Trudeau said he was deeply opposed to it but that it would be "counterproductive for the federal government to engage in this process". Trudeau spent the majority of his speech following his meeting with the Governor General outlining where he saw his government's progress after four years.

Justin Trudeau's decisive victory in 2015 restored his family to the national political stage and allowed Canadian voters to reclaim their country's liberal identity after almost a decade under Harper. "May their memories be a blessing to us all", he said.

That's the question for the leaders of the Conservative, NDP and Green parties today as they prepare for the first leaders' debate of the federal election tonight in Toronto.

Trudeau says this is a chance for Canadians to have a say on the future of the country, "We get to make an important choice about the future of our country".

The Liberal Party of Canada is now in fierce competition with the Conservative Party of Canada.

"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.

Scheer, who also took questions from media Wednesday morning at Ottawa's airport before boarding his campaign plane, said the prime minister had "consistently misled" Canadians. Scheer had called on Trudeau to resign as prime minister back in February, after Wilson-Raybould had delivered her testimony to the committee. "He will say anything to cover up his scandals and he'll say anything to get re-elected, and Canadians can not believe the things he says".

Since then, Mr Trudeau, the son of former Liberal Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, has broken major campaign promises by scrapping plans to introduce voter reform and allowing budget deficits to mushroom.

Trudeau has declined to appear, leaving Scheer to face off against Green leader Elizabeth May and the NDP's Jagmeet Singh.
