مجازفة ترودو تؤدي إلى نتائج عكسية
September 9, 2021 - منذ دعوته إلى انتخابات مبكرة للاستفادة من نجاح معالجته لموضوع الوباء والفوز بأغلبية في البرلمان الكندي، رئيس الوزراء جاستن ترودو يكافح من أجل الحد من تراجع التأييد لحزبه في استطلاعات الرأي.
Trudeau, 49, has pre-empted the country’s election schedule by two years, reckoning that a majority government is needed to “finish the fight” against the coronavirus.
But since calling the snap election, the Liberal party that he leads in a minority government has slid down the polls. The Conservatives, the main opposition party, have been rising and have a shot at winning the 20 September election.
Trudeau calculated that the Conservatives were weak as the pandemic has limited the profile of their unassuming leader, Erin O’Toole. But with a fourth wave of the coronavirus taking hold in Canada just as children are returning to school, voters are in no mood for a needless ballot.
