Federal NDP Won’t Force An Election After The Federal Budget

The federal New Democrats say they won’t force Canadians to the polls as long as people are getting vaccinated for COVID-19. Leader Jagmeet Singh says that means he won’t cause an election by voting against the minority Liberal government’s budget next month. He says the NDP wants to make the system work. At the same time, Singh says the Trudeau Liberals will have to — “answer to Canadians” if the budget does not include money for things like universal pharmacare.
