Trudeau says he doesn’t want an election but country will ’figure it out’ if need be


OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada’s democratic institutions — including Parliament and Elections Canada — need to be fully functional even in the midst of a deadly pandemic. But he insists that doesn’t mean he wants an election this fall. “I do not want an election. I don’t think Canadians want an election,” Trudeau told a news conference Wednesday as he wrapped up two-and-a-half days of cabinet meetings. “I think Canadians want politicians to work together to serve them, to build a better future for them and keep them safe during this (COVID-19) crisis.”
