After over a week of anticipation, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will on Wednesday launch the 2019 federal election campaign season that will see his Liberal Party aim to hold on to power while the rival Conservatives look to take Ottawa.

This means a 41-day campaign before eligible voters head to the polls on Oct. 21, just under half the length of the lengthy 78-day election in 2015 that saw rookie Trudeau take on a three term Stephen Harper.  ■
