Jagmeet Singh's NDP and Justin Trudeau's Liberals have struck a tentative deal to keep Canada under left-wing rule until 2025, CBC's Vassy Kepelos is reporting.
The deal "would see the NDP support the Liberal government to keep it in power until 2025 in exchange for movement on key NDP priorities," CBC reports.
The deal is a "confidence-and-supply agreement" and it still requires the support of NDP MPs who are meeting on Monday night in a late-night meeting, according to CBC's sources.
The breaking CBC report states:
"The agreement would see the NDP back the Liberals in confidence votes. In return, the Liberals will follow through on some elements of national pharmacare and dental care programs — programs that have long been promoted by the NDP.
"Sources tell CBC News that the Liberal cabinet also met this evening virtually, followed by the Liberal caucus. Liberal MPs were not told the reason for the last-minute caucus meeting, sources said.
"Under a 'confidence-and-supply' agreement, an opposition party agrees to support the government on specific measures under specific conditions, and to not vote to defeat the government for a period of time."
A "confidence-and-supply" agreement is not technically a coalition agreement.
