    The Facts

    • Canadian PM Trudeau has reached a formal deal with the NDP that will allow him to stay in power until 2025 in exchange for supporting several NDP priorities.

    • According to the "supply-and-confidence" deal, the NDP will back the liberals in confidence votes, and both parties will work together on policies including healthcare, climate change, and housing, among others.


    The Spin

    Left narrative

    This is good news for Canada. It will create a more stable and representative government during these uncertain times, and allow Trudeau to expand social welfare programs.

    Right narrative

    This is a desperate attempt by Trudeau to cling to power and fulfill his personal ambition. It represents a false majority and is nothing more than a political agenda to expand the government.
