Justin Trudeau said the Canadian government is preparing for “multiple outcomes” in the U.S. election but that he hopes there will be no disruption after the vote.

“I have always had confidence in Americans’ capacity to move forward in a successful way. They’ve been running elections successfully for a very long time and we’re certainly hopeful that everything will go smoothly regardless of the outcome in a few weeks,” Trudeau said Friday at press conference in Ottawa.
