Canada election: Trudeau to lead minority government

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has survived scandal and missteps to win a plurality of seats in Parliament in Canada’s federal election, news media here projected, but he failed to retain his majority, leaving his government dependent on the support of smaller parties to advance his agenda.
Trudeau’s Liberal Party has won more seats than Andrew Scheer’s Conservatives, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. and CTV News projected shortly after polls closed Monday night, but fell short of the 170 needed for a majority in the 338-seat House of Commons. As of late Monday night, preliminary results from Elections Canada indicated that the Liberals were leading or had won 155 seats — down from the 184 they won in 2015. The Conservative Party was in second with 122 seats, but led in the popular vote.
“From coast to coast to coast, tonight, Canadians rejected division and negativity,” a hoarse-voiced Trudeau told a roaring crowd of supporters in Montreal after 1 a.m. EST Tuesday. “They rejected cuts and austerity and they voted in favor of a progressive agenda and strong action on climate change.”

“Unbeknownst to the public as part of our optimization . . . we reduced our authorized strength by 2,000 here,” Gen. Austin “Scott” Miller said at a news conference in Kabul, alongside Defense Secretary Mark T. Esper, who is visiting Afghanistan for the first time since he took office.

U.K. Lawmakers Disrupt Boris Johnson’s Brexit Plan

Prime Minister Boris Johnson suffered a stinging defeat on Saturday as Parliament rebuffed his campaign to take Britain out of the European Union by the end of the month and forced him to seek an extension that he had vowed never to pursue.
The turbulent events left Mr. Johnson’s agreement in limbo and threw British politics once again into chaos, with any number of outcomes possible: a no-deal exit from the European Union, a second referendum on whether to leave at all, or a general election that could shift the balance in Parliament. The only sure result was continuing frustration and confusion among the British public.
