Prime Minister Stephen Harper heads to the highly symbolic riding of Etobicoke-Lakeshore, where former Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff infamously lost his seat in the 2011 campaign to Conservative Bernard Trottier.
That campaign saw the Liberals reduced to third-party status, an ideological victory for the Conservatives who have long said that quashing the notion of Liberals as the natural governing party of Canada is one of their main ideological goals.
But with the Liberals reinvigorated under Justin Trudeau, Harper finds himself on the defensive in the riding and will choose another point of differentiation between his party and what's at stake if the Liberals form government.
This morning's event is at a theatrical production facility, raising the possibility of another dramatic re-enactment akin to Monday's event which saw Harper bring up an Ontario family to show how much money they personally would lose, he argued, under the Liberals.
A report late Monday suggested Doug Ford may attend Harper's event to lend his support.
Harper will also visit London, Ont., later in the day.
NDP Leader Tom Mulcair starts the day in Oshawa before holding a town hall hosted by VICE News in Toronto and moving on to Brampton in the evening.
The Oshawa riding was once held by former NDP leader Ed Broadbent but has been represented by Conservative Colin Carrie since 2004.
While in Toronto, Mulcair is expected to meet Mohamed Fahmy, the former Al-Jazeera journalist who was released from prison in Egypt last month. He arrived in Toronto over the weekend and met Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau Monday.
Trudeau has a busy day planned for Tuesday, with five events on his schedule.
He has three stops in Toronto before heading to Kitchener to meet with the mayors of Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge before attending an evening Oktoberfest event in Mannheim.
Green party Leader Elizabeth May will discuss eliminating poverty in Victoria and hold an event in Nanaimo, B.C., via Skype with James Shaw, the co-leader of Green party of New Zealand.
Bloc Quebecois Leader Gilles Duceppe will make three stops on the same street in Granby, Quebec.
