Canada faces political, economic instability after uncertain U.S election result

Canadian business leaders and political analysts say the morning after election day in the United States brings more political and economic uncertainty for Canada.
     
American voters, and their northern neighbours, must wait to learn whether they will be getting four more years of an inscrutable Donald Trump or beginning a new chapter with Joe Biden.
     
The U.S. presidential election remained unresolved Tuesday night, offering no certainty over who would occupy the foreign office most important to Canadian interests.
     
The cliffhanger had Canadian political observers saying it was too early to know what Canada would be facing for the next four years.
    
It also meant Trudeau government, as expected, withheld all comment because there was nothing definitive to comment on.
     
Bessma Momani, an international affairs specialist at the University of Waterloo, says Trump, who many feared would want to declare a premature victory, might expect Canada to say something.
