Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Wednesday met with Governor General Julie Payette, the acting head of state, who formally gave her blessing for the launch of a six-week federal election campaign.

An election campaign sure to feature plenty of pocketbook promises got underway instead amid deeper questions of ethics and values Wednesday as federal leaders challenged Canadians to consider the kind of country they want to vote for 40 days from now.

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".

"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.

"But we can do that only if we have the courage to take on the powerful interests at the very top".

Before jumping on his own campaign plane this morning, a fired-up Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer said the story showcases his belief that Trudeau has lost the moral authority to govern.

The NDP leader believes the answer is him, telling supporters he plans to talks about providing services like pharmacare and dental care, vision care and mental health services, but only by taking on "lobbyists" and "corporate interests".

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.

"We are going to stand firm".

Rounding out the slate are the nascent People's Party of Canada lead by Maxime Bernier, and, in Quebec, the Bloc Quebecois. "I'm not appealing to (Canadians) emotions, we are appealing to their intelligence".

At the dissolution of Parliament, the Liberals hold 177 seats, the Conservatives 95, the NDP 39, the Bloc 10 and the Greens 2.

The federal election is officially a go.

Several other MPs were also sitting as Independents, including Jody Wilson-Raybould and Jane Philpott, who were kicked out of caucus by Trudeau for raising concerns about the SNC-Lavalin scandal.
