THE NEWS: POLITICS

 
 

STEP 1

 

Now you are going to listen to Lucas Dexter – another newsreader from a local radio in London – broadcasting the full news. Listen just for a gist and don't worry about some words you don't understand: you should be able to get the general idea.

 

STEP 2

 

Listen again to Mr. Dexter and answer these questions. In question # 2,  if the answer is FALSE, correct any mistakes you find. Then check the answers.

1.

Is the Canadian Conservative Party's new majority larger or smaller than before?

 

A.    similar
B.    smaller
C.    larger

2.

The Conservative vote was 9% lower than in the previous election.

 

A.    TRUE
B. 
  FALSE  

 
 

STEP 3

 

Finally, listen again while you check Lucas Dexter's comments with the audio transcription.

Canada's Conservative Party has won a second term in office but with a reduced majority.

However it's not been cut enough to stop their controversial anti-inflation measures winning parliamentary backing.

Compared with the previous election, which produced a Conservative landslide, the Liberal vote was 18% up, against a Conservative drop of 9% and a fall of 8% in the New Democratic support.
