Reflecting on the year, the PM admitted it was “challenging” as he mentioned the global COVID-19 pandemic, acts of “senseless violence” that occurred and “heartbreaking stories and calls for justice from racialized Canadians and Indigenous peoples…”

However, Justin Trudeau spoke of “a renewed sense of hope” that is being carried into the new year.

Sharing his goals for 2021, the Liberal leader spoke of ensuring all Canadians will have free access to vaccines “as soon as possible,” as well as continuing to support people via COVID-19 benefits.

In addition, he promised to “make our country stronger, more sustainable, and more just for everyone.”

According to his message, this means “building a more inclusive economy” and working to address “the systemic barriers that discriminate against too many Canadians.”

Trudeau also spoke of taking further action when it comes to climate change, particularly by investing in clean energy and technologies. 

He concluded the statement by adding, “Now, as we look to the opportunities that await us in 2021, let us all continue to build a Canada that is stronger, fairer, and more equitable for everyone.”
