During his address on April 16, Justin Trudeau revealed that he got into an argument with his oldest kid that morning about COVID-19 restrictions.
He said that he knows Canadians are exhausted by the pandemic and just want to be done with it, which is how his 13-year-old son Xavier is feeling as well.
"Xavier is 13 years old and he misses his friends. He doesn't want to be doing school online. He wants to go outside and play basketball with his friends. He wants to have the normal life that, quite frankly, we all want right now," Trudeau said.
He also noted that this isn't just something his family is dealing with, saying that families across the country are having talks like this and parents aren't "enthused" about restrictions either.
Trudeau said that nobody wants to "hunker down for a few more weeks" but that Canadians have to follow public health rules or else the summer will be at risk.
