Liberals Win Majority Government in Canada
They’re leaning left. Canadians delivered victory to Justin Trudeau’s Liberals in yesterday’s parliamentary election, handing them at least 184 seats and dismissing three-term Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who will also resign as Conservative Party leader. Trudeau hailed it a win for “positive politics” as he follows in the footsteps of his father, Pierre, the former prime minister known as the father of modern Canada. The Liberals promise “more proactive diplomacy” from the new leader, who will first reach out to President Obama before attending November’s G20 summit in Turkey.
