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".

Clouding his optimism was SNC-Lavalin, given fresh life by a Globe and Mail report that the RCMP's investigation into potential obstruction of justice has been hamstrung by the shroud of cabinet confidence.

He also declined to address what personal mistakes he might have made in the saga, which saw the ethics commissioner declare Trudeau broke the law by trying to influence a decision on whether the Quebec engineering firm should go to trial on charges related to alleged corrupt dealings in Libya.

"Ontario Premier Doug Ford has reminded Ontarians what a conservative government can be like", said Robert Bothwell, a professor of Canadian history and worldwide relations at the University of Toronto. "I will always defend the public interest".

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

With the Conservative campaign plane behind him, Scheer also says he plans to spend the next five weeks or so talking to Canadians about the Tories' platform.

Trudeau, Leader of the Liberal Party, will have five and a half weeks to convince Canadians to give his government a second chance when they head to the polls on October 21.

The Liberals and Conservatives are beginning the campaign in a statistical tie, according to some polls.

Green Party leader Elizabeth May and Jagmeet Singh, the leader of the left-wing New Democrat Party, started the day with rallies.

"Candidates include veterans, teachers, Indigenous leaders, LGBTQ2 advocates, entrepreneurs, scientists, first responders, Olympians and Paralympians, experienced Parliamentarians, and more - all working hard to build a better future for their communities", said Braeden Caley, head of communications for the Liberal Party of Canada in a statement to CTVNews.ca. "Quebecers can only rely on us, Bloc members of Parliament will always be powerless spectators".
