At a news conference on Parliament Hill, Annamie Paul, the newly elected leader of the Green Party of Canada, discusses the upcoming vote in the House of Commons on the address in reply to the Speech from the Throne. She is joined by Elizabeth May, the party’s former party leader and current parliamentary leader. The vote on the throne speech is a key test of the House’s confidence in Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s minority Liberal government; the NDP have already indicated that they intend to vote with the government on the throne speech, guaranteeing its passage.
