La apuesta de Trudeau por la mayoría podría resultar contraproducente

By Jordi Bou

September 9, 2021 - Desde que convocó una elección anticipada para tratar de capitalizar su manejo de la pandemia y ganar mayoría en el parlamento, el primer ministro de Canadá Justin Trudeau ha luchado por superar la fatiga de los votantes.

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.
