Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Held onto Power in Tight Elections

HeadlineOct 22, 2019

In Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party held onto power in Monday’s tight national elections. The Liberals did not win a majority, with the Conservative Party gaining seats in Parliament. The election was widely seen as a referendum on Trudeau’s four years in power, including his highly controversial approvals of new pipelines, including the Trans Mountain oil pipeline expansion project and occasional scandals, including photos of him appearing in blackface.
