Canada election 2015: Where the leaders are Wednesday
The three major party leaders are in Calgary, but only Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau has scheduled campaign events planned as they prepare for Thursday's debate on the economy.
The Liberals say Trudeau, in addition to preparing for the debate, will make a local announcement and meet with Mayor Naheed Nenshi on Wednesday morning.
While NDP Leader Tom Mulcair has no public events scheduled, the party is expected to provide a costing breakdown of its spending promises. Details have not been provided on when and where this briefing will take place.

Mulcair has been dogged for weeks by questions about how he will pay for his spending promises while maintaining his pledge to balance the books.
This week alone, Mulcair has handed out multi-billion dollar health proposals and he has been applying pressure on his opponents to also present financial figures ahead of the debate.
The economic debate — hosted by the Globe and Mail in partnership with Google Canada — comes with very high stakes for Mulcair, whose main goal of the campaign has been to sell the NDP brand as a credible alternative to replace Stephen Harper's Conservatives.
Harper is expected to keep a low profile while in Calgary and spend the day preparing for the debate and leaving the heavy lifting to his Alberta lieutenant Jason Kenney.
Kenny has scheduled a news conference to make an announcement related to campaign spending promises and the economy.
Green party Leader Elizabeth May spends a second day campaigning in Guelph, Ont., where the local candidate is Gord Miller, the former environmental commissioner of Ontario.
May will make an announcement on education and youth, meet students at the University of Guelph and hold a book signing for her book, "Who We Are: Reflections on My Life and Canada."
Bloc Leader Gilles Duceppe will hold a news conference on infrastructure in Montreal and make campaign speeches in the nearby communities of Chambly and Saint-Jean-Sur-Richelieu.
