The long weekend has already begun, but some people are still working. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was among them, as he gave another daily address on Saturday. However, he appeared ready to start his weekend like everyone else, keeping it short and refusing to repeat himself.\nDuring his May 16 address, Trudeau announced an increase to the Canada Child Benefit. In addition to an extra $300 per child, the benefit itself is being increased to keep up with the cost of living.\nWhile taking questions from reporters, Trudeau was asked in French about the benefit.\nHe responded in French as well, providing the information he had already given during his remarks.\nHowever, rather than repeating his answer in English, he simply said, "I said it during the speech in English," before heading back into Rideau Cottage with a smile on his face.\nThis response appeared to make someone in the audience laugh loud enough to get picked up on the live feed before it ended.\nThe daily address was slightly shorter than normal, and Trudeau was also rocking a much more casual outfit, complete with jeans and comfortable shoes.\nConsidering he made this address on the Saturday of the Victoria Day long weekend, it's possible that he just wanted to get started on his own time off.\nLIVE: PM Justin Trudeau provides update on federal response to COVID-19 EN DIRECT : Le PM Justin Trudeau fait le point sur la réponse fédérale à la COVID-19 #cdnpoli #polcan #COVID19 https://t.co/ysZIn8SeIF— CPAC (@CPAC_TV) May 16, 2020\nDuring the same address, Trudeau made the announcement that Health Canada had approved the country's first clinical trials of a potential COVID-19 vaccine.\n"Research and development take time and must be done right but this is encouraging news," the Prime Minister said."\nPM Trudeau's Saturday update on federal response to #COVID19:—Health Canada approves first Cdn clinical trials for potential vaccine —Canada Child Benefit to increase in July for upcoming year—up to $100M for Canadian Red Cross to address COVID-19 & future floods, wildfires pic.twitter.com/SIIHHaZBm4— CPAC (@CPAC_TV) May 16, 2020\nOther politicians were getting their long weekends started as well. Premier Doug Ford shared a recipe for his cherry cheesecake on Twitter.\nHowever, it raised questions about whether he was properly social distancing or not.\nFor people who might have been upset about missing out on the usual activities, it might comfort them to know that this Victoria Day weekend is going to be a rainy one.
