OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canada’s opposition New Democrats will vote to back Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government in a confidence vote later on Wednesday, preventing a snap election, Radio-Canada reported.
A Radio-Canada reporter said on Twitter the bureau had confirmed the support. There was no immediate reaction from New Democrat leader Jagmeet Singh’s office.
