Trudeau says Canadians don't want another election this year



Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canadians don't want to "dive" into an election this year, and believes his governance agreement with the NDP is going "extremely well."


As long as the agreement remains focused on generating results, Trudeau said the Liberals and NDP "will continue to be able to govern together."


Trudeau is currently meeting with his cabinet in Hamilton, Ontario, for a three-day retreat before the return of Parliament.


Under a confidence and supply agreement reached between the two parties last March, the NDP agreed to support the minority Liberal Party government on key votes in the House of Commons to avoid an election before 2025.


In return, the Liberals promised to advance NDP priorities.


"The reason we came together was because we recognized that this is an opportunity to demonstrate that progressive governments really can deliver for Canadians," said Trudeau, speaking during an interview on the Good Morning Hamilton radio show this morning.


However, NDP leader Jagmeet Singh has said he is prepared to withdraw his support from the deal if Trudeau fails to deliver on key issues. One of those issues, the NDP has repeatedly said, is pharmacare.


However, when asked about the government's progress on the file, Trudeau provided no details.


"We're going to continue to make sure we reduce the cost of pharmacare for Canadians," he said.
