Michael Ignatieff is living the dream.

The Liberal Leader confided to a young child at a Regina daycare Saturday that his own childhood dream was to be a bulldozer driver.

Monday is his lucky day.

At his first campaign stop, he'll be trying out a heavy bulldozer training simulator at the Det'on Cho Training Centre in Dettah, NWT.

After his daily press conference, he'll be at a lunch-time barbeque in Yellowknife.

Then he's off to Winnipeg to observe Passover Seder with Liberal candidate Anita Neville.

........

Conservative Leader Stephen Harper is also in Yellowknife Monday morning, before heading to Thunder Bay for an evening rally.

........

New Democrat Leader Jack Layton will spend the day trying to win new seats in Quebec.

Mr. Layton will start with a breakfast with supporters in Quebec City and later in the morning he will have a private meeting with Quebec Mayor Régis Labeaume at city hall.

The NDP Leader's plane then departs for Val D'or where he will hold a campaign event with his candidate Romeo Saganash, an well-known aboriginal leader who is running in Abitibi-Baie James-Nunavik-Eeyou.

The NDP has been polling well in Quebec and recent polls suggest Quebeckers believe Mr. Layton possesses strong leadership skills.

.......

Bloc Québécois Leader Gilles Duceppe is spending Monday in Montreal where he will meet with artists and present the party's priorities on cultural issues.

He will end his day in the riding of Pointe-aux-Trembles to pay tribute to long-time Bloc MP Francine Lalonde, who is not running for re-election.
