Trudeau to win 3rd term as Canadian PM - projections

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will stay on for a third term after the latest general election, according to projections by CBC News and CTV News. His Liberal Party will form the new government, although it is still too early to tell if it will be a majority or a minority one.

Trudeau called an early vote in August, hoping to capitalize on his party's high ratings at the time. However, he faced strong opposition from Conservative Party leader Erin O'Toole and New Democratic Party head Jagmeet Singh as voters reacted negatively to the prime minister's decision to organize an election as the COVID-19 pandemic was picking up speed.
