Canadians Back Justin Trudeau, With Reservations

OTTAWA—Canadian Primary Minister Justin Trudeau fell short on his gambit of capturing a parliamentary majority in countrywide elections and now faces demands from a remaining-wing rival celebration to shore up healthcare investing and increase taxes on the wealthy.

The preliminary success from Monday’s election suggest Canadians have reservations about the primary minister that involve a record of moral breaches and his decision to hold a snap vote in the course of the Covid-19 pandemic. But the success also advise voters weren’t enamored with Mr. Trudeau’s rivals, as opposition functions created no discernible gains relative to the 2019 election.
