Canada opposition party demands quick action from PM Trudeau's minority gov't

OTTAWA, Oct 30 (Reuters) - A small Canadian opposition party which could help keep the new minority government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in power on Wednesday demanded quick action on two of its priorities.

New Democratic Party (NPD) leader Jagmeet Singh told reporters he wanted the ruling Liberals to back universal coverage for prescription drugs. He also insisted Trudeau drop an appeal against a court decision ordering compensation for indigenous children harmed by federal welfare policies.
