With less than a week to go to the official dropping of the writs — which, as Process Nerd previewed last week, could theoretically take place any minute now, but is now widely expected to happen on Sunday — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is set to spend another day in "private meetings."

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer isn't going let the Liberals' leisurely approach to launch dates hold him — or his party — back from kicking off his campaign at back-to-back rallies in Trois-Rivieres and Woodbridge on Wednesday.

As for the New Democrats, they were originally planning to beat their rivals to the punch with a Sunday afternoon start-up event, but were obliged to scrap those plans due to concerns that Hurricane Dorian could still be battering Atlantic Canada as the orange balloon drops.
