Canada's Trudeau Vows Flood Aid, Climate Action After Third Election Win

"OTTAWA - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, opening a new parliamentary session on Tuesday, vowed to help British Columbia rebuild after the devastating floods last week, and said it was time to ramp up the fight against climate change.

Trudeau was re-elected on Sept. 20 for a third time, albeit with a second minority government that will need opposition support to pass legislation.

Work in the House of Commons, suspended since August, kicked off with a speech that Canada's governor general Mary May Simon, who represents its head of state, Queen Elizabeth, delivered on the prime minister's behalf."
