Embattled Trudeau launches federal election campaigning in Canada

Ottawa: Justin Trudeau on Wednesday officially kicks 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.
Elected in 2015, Trudeau and the Liberal Party will be battling to hold onto a majority in parliament against untested rivals Andrew Scheer of the Conservatives and New Democratic Party leader Jagmeet Singh, as well as the strengthening Greens led by Elizabeth May.
Voters will choose all 338 members of the House of Commons, with the latest poll on Tuesday showing the Liberals reclaiming a slight lead over the Tories. Accusations of Trudeau meddling in a criminal prosecution sent the Liberals’ popularity tumbling at the start of the year. (AFP)
