Global National: Oct. 20, 2020 | Tory push for anti-corruption committee could prompt election

On tonight’s episode of Global National: Canada’s Conservatives have proposed a motion to create an anti-corruption committee that would review the ethics of the Liberal government. But Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is turning that motion into a confidence vote. If this committee becomes a reality, it would mean the opposition has lost confidence in the minority Liberal government, and that would send Canadians to the polls again. David Akin has a closer look at this political tug of war, and the likelihood of a fall election.

Despite an hours-long emergency debate in Ottawa, there is still confusion on the federal response to Nova Scotia’s fishing dispute. As Ross Lord reports, both sides of the dispute do agree that Ottawa is sending out mixed messages on Indigenous fishing rights.

    We don't need more violence. I don't get why people do not understand we are in pandemic. Either be part of the situation. Or get out of the way. So others can figure out a way to fix all the problems we have. Some things are out of our control. Get use to it. It's part of life. Violence is just making matters worse.

    The conservatives don't get that they live in a country which is far more left than it is right. The only thing they may ever achieve is a minority government that will be dominated by a lib and ndp coalition

    This is another distraction. No one is going to go to jail this way.

    They all need to be tried for treason and criminal conspiracy.

    The only thing more detestable than calling an election right now is to allow the Trudeau government to continue abusing their power of office. It is obvious that this committee needs to exist. If it ends up dissolving Parliament, so be it.

    I never thought I would see such an unfair court decision in Canada, to say that the officer was not at fault is a travesty of the Canadian Judicial System. That Poilice Officer is nothing but a "THUG" with a badge, no brains, all brawn!!!

    Jackson Proskow….Why are you…a biased reportor in the USA reporting back to Canada? Your skewed and biased leftist reporting is a disgrace to our country. Have you ever heard of Max Keeping? Do you think he would consider your reporting upstanding? I think not..and you know it.

    gosh. they can't bring in some minimum wage temps to wash & sterilize those pippet tips ? (likely cheaper than buying new). single-use plastics are supposed to be outlawed.
