Ottawa has already injected more than 300 billion dollars (193 billion euros) to support the economy since the spring.

"Low interest rates mean that we can afford it", explained Mr. Trudeau in his speech. "Doing less would lead to a slower recovery and larger deficits in the long run," he added, promising to spend "responsibly".

The government has announced a plethora of new spending not quantified, but assures that the economic recovery is "well underway" and that its action will remain guided by "the values ​​of viability and prudence".

Ottawa is particularly committed to supporting the creation of "more than one million jobs" to bring the unemployment rate back to pre-crisis levels of around 5.5%.

The "speech from the throne" will be submitted in the coming weeks to a vote of confidence by the deputies, which could theoretically cause the fall of the government and the holding of new elections.

To overthrow the government, the three main opposition parties would have no choice but to unite. Two of them immediately announced that they would vote against the speech.

Quebec independence activist Yves-François Blanchet, positive for Covid-19 like Conservative leader Erin O'Toole, accused Ottawa of not having "listened to the urgent and legitimate demands" of the provinces, which called in particular for transfers federal money for health care.

"After four years of Mr. Trudeau, our country is more divided, less prosperous and less respected on the world stage", added the conservative Mr. O'Toole.

The survival of the minority government of Justin Trudeau is therefore suspended by the vote of the New Democratic Party (NDP, left).

Its leader Jagmeet Singh has reserved his decision, leaving doubt about possible early elections this fall.

He notably conditioned his support for the Trudeau government on the maintenance of the Canadian Emergency Benefit, financial assistance for employees affected by Covid-19 that the government wants to abolish.

"If you want my support, then you must give up proposing to cut aid to Canadians who cannot return to work," he told Trudeau. He also demanded the establishment of a specific sick leave system for employees who contracted the virus.
