44th Parliament of Canada
22 Nov 2021 - Present

The Canadian federal election of 2021 (officially the 44th Canadian general election) took place on September 20, 2021, and elected members of the House of Commons to Canada’s 44th Parliament. The Liberal Party, led by outgoing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, won 160 seats, forming a second consecutive minority government.

The Trudeau government had originally made 569 promises in its 2021 campaign platform and press releases. This number was reduced to 352 by an extensive, multi-coder process of sorting promises according to their degree of precision and importance to society. Unclear and less important promises were removed from the analysis.

For an analysis of the achievements of Justin Trudeau’s first government (2015-2019), see Birch and Pétry (2019), Assessing Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Government. 353 promises and a mandate for change, published by Les Presses de l’Université Laval.

« Une nouvelle étape aurait été franchie dans l’épineux dossier du rachat du pont de Québec par le gouvernement fédéral. Le ministre des Services publics et de l’Approvisionnement, Jean-Yves Duclos, affirme qu’une offre a été envoyée au Canadien National (CN), l’actuel propriétaire du pont. “Un projet d’entente final est présentement sur le bureau de la présidente-directrice générale du CN, Mme Tracy Robinson”, a évoqué le ministre Duclos lundi matin au micro de la journaliste Louise Boisvert de l’émission Première Heure. »

“Discussions with the Canadian National Railway (CN) continue to move forward, with a goal to reach an agreement in principle, which could see the federal government’s repatriation of the Bridge and establish a fair and equitable partnership with CN and Quebec. // We remain committed and confident that we will conclude fair and equitable agreements with CN and Quebec, the two partners and historical users of the bridge, to fulfill our commitment to take care of this historical asset and a key link between the south and north shores of Quebec.”

« Rien ne va plus dans les négociations entourant le rachat du pont de Québec par le gouvernement fédéral. Dans un revirement inattendu, le gouvernement Legault a choisi de bloquer une entente survenue entre Ottawa et le Canadien National. »

« Le parti libéral a déjà fait trois élections sur la promesse d’un entretien pérenne du pont de Québec. Aura-t-il l’outrecuidance d’en attendre une quatrième? // Cette lenteur nous dit deux choses. // 1- Le faible poids politique du Québec au sein du cabinet fédéral. Les ministres du ROC (Rest of Canada) sont, semble-t-il, réticents à reprendre le pont de Québec et à financer son entretien à long terme. // On ne sent pas cette même rigueur dans l’ensemble des programmes et projets fédéraux. // 2- Le manque de volonté ou de leadership du premier ministre Justin Trudeau. Qu’attend-il pour mettre son pied à terre et conclure? »
