Federal leaders spar during French debate6 minute read Friday, Sep. 3, 2021
OTTAWA — Weeks after he pulled the plug on his own minority government, Justin Trudeau predicted Thursday that Canadians could be back at the polls within 18 months if they don’t elect a majority.
During Thursday night’s French debate in Montreal, the Liberal leader was the sole man on stage who said a minority government could fall within two years of the federal election on Sept. 20.
And for that, he blamed the Conservatives.
“The differences that we have with the Conservatives — on vaccines, on child care, on the environment — I think that we would maybe find ourselves in 18 months in another election if we had a minority government,” Trudeau said.
