Minority government expected to emerge from Canadian election

Charles Krupa / AP
Justin Trudeau is in a tough fight to hold control of the House of Commons.

The polls indicate a close race in today's general election in Canada. That assessment is shared by Professor Munroe Eagles, Chair of the Political Science Department at the University at Buffalo. Conservatives and Liberals will share most of the seats in the House of Commons, but neither is likely to gain a clear majority. With other minor parties winning some seats, Eagles expects a minority government to emerge. Who will have minority control, Eagles says, is anybody's guess.

Monday - Friday, 6 a.m. - 10 a.m.
