The federal Liberals and NDP have struck a confidence-and-supply deal, which would see the Liberal minority government stay in power until 2025. Abigail Bimman explains what’s in this agreement, what’s in it for the New Democrats, why this isn’t a coalition, and what happens if things fall apart.
The deal is also posing new questions and implications. Eric Sorensen looks at the pressure this takes off Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, the rewards and risks for NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh and his party, and what this agreement means for the Conservatives and their next leader.
The prime minister is also heading to Brussels this week to meet with NATO, EU, and G7 leaders about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and there is plenty to discuss. David Akin looks at the finer points of what’s on Trudeau’s agenda.
Meanwhile, as the invasion of Ukraine continues, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is warning his country could become Russia’s gateway to Europe. Redmond Shannon reports on Zelenskyy’s new pleas to Italian lawmakers; how Russian forces bombed a psychiatric hospital in Mykolaiv, Ukraine; and how the U.S. is hinting at more ways to hit back at Russia.
This isn’t the first time Ukrainians have had to fight foreign invaders. Jeff Semple looks at how the Nazis attacked and occupied Odesa during the Second World War, what residents are enduring now, and how that port city formed a special bond with Vancouver.
And as millions of Ukrainians keep fleeing the war, challenges are ramping up for neighbouring nations trying to take in the flood of people. As Mike Armstrong reports, the United Nations is warning the refugee crisis is reaching its “worse-case scenario.”
