OTTAWA, Canada: Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper will resign as Conservative leader after losing legislative elections to the Liberals led by Justin Trudeau, it was announced Monday.
On the domestic front, Harper defended Canada’s Arctic claims, while appearing to show little interest in climate change.
Supporters say he strayed somewhat from his fiscally conservative roots, while opponents called for “anyone but Conservatives” to govern. – AFP
