Conservative leader Candice Bergen released a statement following the announcement of an agreement between the Liberals and the NDP that would keep the Trudeau government in power until 2025.
Following the news that broke late last night, Bergen tweeted "God help us all," saying that she'd have a statement for the next day.
On Tuesday morning, she released the statement which said: "The NDP-Liberal coalition is nothing more than a callous attempt by Trudeau to hold on to power.
"Canadians did not vote for an NDP government. This is little more than backdoor socialism. Trudeau is truly polarizing politics which is what he likes.
"This is an NDP-Liberal attempt at government by blackmail. Nation-building is replaced by vote-buying; secret deal-making over parliamentary debate; and opportunism over accountability.
"With rising inflation, out-of-control cost of living, and national unity at stake, Trudeau knows he is losing the confidence of Canadians.
"His answer is to stay in power at all costs including implementing the even harsher and more extreme policies of the NDP.
"If this NDP-Liberal coalition stands, Canada is in for a very rough ride."
While not an official coalition government, the deal will see a number of agreements between the parties that will be prioritized.
This includes "a better healthcare system," "making life more affordable for people" through housing initiatives and benefits, and "tackling the climate crisis and creating good paying jobs" my achieving net-zero by 2050 and creating "clean jobs."
