OTTAWA—Federal Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer will take the initiative Wednesday and officially launch his bid to become Canada's next prime minister.

Sources tell the Star the Conservatives will kickoff their election campaign Wednesday, rather than wait for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to head to Rideau Hall and officially call the general election.

The Conservative move would end weeks of pre-election posturing by political parties and start what is expected to be a fractious federal campaign. Scheer will launch his campaign Wednesday in Québec and finish the day in the GTA — two crucial battlegrounds the party needs to pick up seats if they hope to form government after the vote, expected on Oct. 21.
