Katie Simpson - Can Justin Trudeau win the Canadian election?

From Saturday Morning, 8:15 am on 20 July 2019

Canada is heading toward a general election on October 21 and the two main opponents are neck and neck.

The country's once "golden-boy" Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was hit by scandal in March when two of his cabinet ministers resigned, citing accusations that Trudeau and his aides tried to influence a bribery case involving a Canadian company.

His main opponent, Conservative leader Andrew Scheer has also come under fire from press, for criticizing Canada's new food guide, in a way that is being called "dangerous" by health experts.

Kim will ask CBC political reporter Katie Simpson who she thinks will win and why.
