Trudeau Says Canada Must 'Remain Vigilant' To Avoid A Fall Lockdown

Trudeau Says Canada Must 'Remain Vigilant' To Avoid A Fall Lockdown”

Ahead of the unveiling of Canada's retaliatory measures in response to the United States' tariffs on Canadian aluminum, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the trade action by U.S. President Donald Trump "unjust".

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau warned Monday that Canada was "not out of the woods" with the coronavirus, urging citizens to be vigilant amid an uptick in virus cases nationwide.

"One of the things we're seeing is, with numbers rising across the country, we are not out of the woods", he told reporters.

The past several weeks have seen a resurgence in COVID-19 across Canada, with the trendlines increasing after a summer lull, sparking reminders from the country's top public health officer for Canadians not to let their guards down as colder temperatues come.

"As I've said many times we will always be there to defend Canadian workers, defend our aluminum sector", Trudeau said on his way into the second day of his cabinet's retreat.

Trudeau had previously indicated the speech would present a bold plan for rebuilding a more sustainable, equitable and clean economy.

The speech itself is now expected to focus more on getting through the pandemic than how to rebuild after it's over, with details on the longer-term recovery measures not revealed until an economic statement later in the fall.

Last week, CBC News reported that the government also would use the speech from the throne to signal its intention to make child care more widely available and to launch a green recovery plan.

March 10 was the date of a government briefing note prepared for Hajdu, reported by the CBC, which incorrectly told her that with only 12 reported cases in Canada, the risk of COVID-19 spreading was low and we were "well-equipped to contain cases coming from overseas".

The latest numbers of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Canada as of 11:01 a.m. EDT on September 14, 2020: There are 136,972 confirmed cases in Canada. "But our focus is very much on what we need to do to control COVID-19".

Parliament is set to resume with a throne speech on September 23.

New Democratic Party Leader Jagmeet Singh and his wife, Gurkiran Kaur Sidhu, react on stage at his election night headquarters in Burnaby, B.C., on October 22, 2019.

The MPs want a resolution on the matter to go directly to the floor for debate and a vote.
