Investigation and election are coming, Canada

Justin Trudeau (Canadian leader)A Canadian pro-family advocate says a coalition of two left-wing parties is propping up the country's prime minister and preventing a snap election that could bring down his government.

Justin Trudeau's Liberal Party recently survived a no-confidence vote in the House of Commons (180-146) with the support of the New Democrat Party (NDP). Trudeau won re-election last year, but because he does not have the majority of seats in Parliament, he must rely on at least one opposing party to remain in power.

The no-confidence vote was triggered by a Conservative Party motion demanding that a special committee investigate coronavirus pandemic relief spending that has benefitted members of Trudeau's family.

This marks the third time the Liberals have faced a no-confidence vote since Parliament returned in late September.

Rushfeldt

Brian Rushfeldt, the former executive director of Canada Family Action, tells OneNewsNow the Conservatives want a committee to investigate the WE Charity scandal.

"We've seen ethics scandals of Trudeau, of one of his top ministers, and now one of his staff [has] broken the laws. We certainly should have an election," Rushfeldt asserts. "The problem is that the NDP … has been joining forces with the Liberals to keep them in power. But I think that within the next year things are going to unfold, [with] perhaps maybe even some criminal activities being exposed."

Then he expects Canada will have an election.
