New House set to return as Liberal government faces unfinished legislative business with potential NDP ally
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government will need provincial and territorial cooperation, not opposition support in the House of Commons, to make that childcare goal a reality. So far, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Quebec, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Yukon have signed onto the program. Canada’s largest province—Ontario—has not.
With a pandemic still happening, a climate crisis that needs urgent addressing and an economy requiring a kick-start following a string of nationwide lockdowns, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, pictured Nov. 11, 2021, in Ottawa, and his third-term Liberal government will enter a new Parliament with enormous tasks to tackle.
