347,466 Total cases in Canada

If a similar number of people test positive for the illness on November 25, it's possible Canada will report 350,000 total cases before Friday.

This comes as multiple provinces continue to report record-high numbers of positive tests.

Additionally, regions that were previously less impacted by COVID-19 are now recording more and more cases.

Rising figures have even led to the breakdown of the Atlantic travel bubble.

Addressing the rising figures on Monday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau urged Canadians in badly-affected areas to avoid travel and stay at home whenever possible.

Discussing the holidays just days earlier, Trudeau said that a normal Christmas would be “out of the question” this year.

Hailing from Quebec, 15-year-old Olivier Rioux clocks in at a neck-ache-inducing 7 feet, 5.33 inches tall, which has earned him a place in the 2022 edition of the Guinness World Records as the world's tallest living male teenager. That makes him taller than any of the Toronto Raptors players.

Justin Trudeau Just Promised To Crack Down On 'Mobs' Protesting In Health Care Settings

If elected, he says the Liberals would move to criminalize blocking health care buildings.

With anti-vaccine protests taking place all over the country on September 13, the federal leaders have finally weighed in and Justin Trudeau is not holding back.

"The Liberal Party of Canada, if reelected to form government, will make it a criminal offence to block access to buildings that provide health care," said Trudeau while in Vancouver on September 13. "Whether that's hospitals, clinics, abortion clinics, pharmacies, testing centres, it is not OK that across the country, hospitals are having to put up barricades today to manage the mobs coming their way."
