Trudeau Faces Difficult Questions on Inflation and Rising Cost of Living in Canada

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau faced tough questions from the Conservative opposition MP's on inflation and the rising cost of living on Wednesday. During Question Period in the House of Commons, Trudeau was asked repeatedly whether he will renew the mandate for the Bank of Canada to keep the prime interest rate at two per cent. Trudeau said his government has a plan to tackle inflation and the rising cost of living, which includes more investment in housing and childcare. The rising cost of living is frequently seen in polls to be a top concern to Canadians, and an issue to be reckoned with by all the major political parties in the current minority Parliament.
