Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister, announced Tuesday that his Liberal Party reached an agreement to keep his party in power through 2025 with the leftist opposition New Democratic Party.

Trudeau stated that this meant that the government could function in uncertain times with predictability, stability, budget presentation and implementation and still get things done for Canadians.

Trudeau's Liberal Party was reelected in September, but it failed to win a majority in Parliament. Therefore, Trudeau must rely on opposition parties to pass legislation. In exchange for agreements on pharmaceutical and dental care, Trudeau's Liberal Party will support the NDP party. Trudeau stated that the NDP will not have a lawmaker within Trudeau’s Cabinet. Trudeau also said that they won't have a vote on any budget.

Trudeau stated, "We have agreed to work together." It's important to focus on what we all agree on, rather than what we disagree on.

Jagmeet Singh, NDP leader, said that it's not a coalition government. If the Liberals fail to meet certain conditions, the deal will be terminated. He said that he is confident that it will work.

Truckers and anti-vaccine protesters occupied Ottawa's capital. They demanded that Trudeau's government be overthrown earlier in the year. He's now certain that he will remain in power for a while.

Candice Bergen, interim leader of the Conservative Party, stated that "this is nothing more than Justin Trudeau's power grab."

Trudeau stated that he will run for the next election, which must take place by 2025.

Trudeau stated, "As I have said many times, I plan on continuing to serve Canadians through the next election."

There are many doubts that he will, considering that he has been at the helm for 10 years and has seen his popularity drop, as well as animosity towards him, in large parts of western Canada.

Trudeau, who was 43 years old when he became Canada's second-youngest prime minister, is still remembered for his promise of "sunny days". Although there have been setbacks, Trudeau has been reelected twice.

Trudeau was tall and slim, channeling the star power, if not quite as much the political heft, of Pierre Trudeau his father. Trudeau was Prime Minister until 1984, with a brief interruption. His charisma draws comparisons to John F. Kennedy.

McGill University's politics professor Daniel Beland said that the agreement will give stability to Trudeau’s Liberal minority government and promote left-leaning spending priorities such as dental care, medical drug coverage, and more.

Beland stated that this would lead to a "frustrating situation" with less power for the Conservative Party of Canada.

Beland praises Justin Trudeau for his long tenure. He noted that it would make him one the longest-serving Prime Ministers in recent debates alongside Jean Chretien (who served for around a decade) and Stephen Harper (who served for approximately ten years).

Beland stated that Pierre Trudeau, his father, was the third longest-serving Prime Minister in Canadian history and was a feat his son might not be able to match.

Robert Bothwell, an international relations professor at the University of Toronto and a professor of Canadian history, stated that the agreement places Trudeau in a position where he can expand the social welfare network and that is probably what he would be remembered for.

Bothwell stated that he believes that Trudeau realizes this and that to some degree that is what is behind it. When people think about Trudeau, many think only of his showy gestures and semi-woke politics.

Bothwell stated that Trudeau's legacy is taking Trudeau's party from being Canada's third party to becoming Canada's dominant party. "Politically, that's an impressive achievement. Bothwell stated that he had stopped Stephen Harper's rightward drift, which is significant.

Bothwell stated that Russia's war on Ukraine could lead to another cold war. Canada will be under pressure to increase its defense budget to 2% of its GDP. This is a measure it has long been slow to adopt.

"Canada had an extremely high defense spending last time, around 4% in the 50s and 60s. Bothwell stated that when this happened, they put off any thought of expanding the social security net.

Bothwell suggested that tax rates could rise. He said, "There's still room."
