Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is due to meet with Governor General Julie Payette at 10 am (1400 GMT) Wednesday and ask her to dissolve parliament.

With that starts a 40-day campaign that will see Trudeau make the pitch to Canadians that he should be given a second term, while his opponents focus not just on why he shouldn't, but why they should have a chance at governing instead.

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

New Democrat Leader Jagmeet Singh returns to the same Goodwill Centre where he co-hosted an evening town hall on health care with London-area hopefuls on Tuesday night to offer his on-the-spot response to the dropping of the writs, which, the advisory notes, will begin "as soon as the Liberal leader is finished".

The last federal election in 2015 ran roughly 78 days, a record length for a Canadian political campaign, and saw the incumbent Conservatives lose to the then third-place Liberals in an upset that only became apparent in polls of voter intentions toward the very end of that campaign.

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

He was drafted in the fifth round by the Oakland Raiders in 2015 and played his rookie season, recording nine tackles and a sack. He recovered after a year away and played in 33 games - with 16 starts - during his final three seasons in Gainesville.

The Green Party, led by Elizabeth May, will be focusing efforts on trying to break through in British Columbia and Atlantic Canada.

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.

However, if you look to focus groups being done by the parties, Canadians aren't fond of those tactics and want a more serious, friendly tone.

Later Wednesday, People's Party of Canada Leader Maxime Bernier is to appear for his own campaign debut in Toronto, alongside candidate Renata Ford, wife of the late populist Toronto mayor Rob Ford. In that scenario, either Trudeau or Scheer would have to rely on at least one opposition party to pass legislation.

"We have the real policy that will help our country be freer and more prosperous", he said.

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