'Power grab': Opposition parties lambaste Liberals, NDP for deal keeping Trudeau in power until 2025
National Post: 'We are in a democracy, and we are not forced to believe what (Trudeau) believes, to do what he commands, and to agree with whatever he says or does'
' Conservative and Bloc Québécois MPs lambasted both the Liberals and NDP for their pact on Tuesday, accusing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of “desperately clinging” to power and NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh of “voting on command” for the government.
'The deal between the Liberals and the NDP — leaked on Monday night and announced on Tuesday — was greeted with vitriol and skepticism by the other two main opposition parties. It guarantees Trudeau will stay in power until 2025 in exchange for moving forward on New Democrat promises such as creating national pharmacare and dental-care programs.'
