Later in the day, he is expected to take part in a rally in Edmonton, which has two Liberal MPs.

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

May, who began her campaign Wednesday in Victoria, only has the debate on her public schedule.

The Canadian Press

Federal leaders should do more to fight Bill 21.
The federal election campaign is only hours old and the party leaders want us to know they have bold solutions to the problems that ail us, that they’ll stop at nothing to make sure we have clear choices on Oct. 21. Except, it seems, when it comes to one of the most important moral and social questions we can think of: whether all Canadians, regardless of where they live, should have their fundamental rights respected. We speak, of course, of Bill 21, the frankly discriminatory Quebec law that prohibits provincial employees in many “positions of authority,” from teachers to police officers to judges and prosecutors, from wearing religious symbols or headgear at work.
