He added that he will continue to stand up for the interests of Canadians and do what it takes to keep them safe during the pandemic. 

Trudeau mentioned that in dealing with the current administration, his government was able to stand up for Canadian steel and aluminum workers, seemingly in reference to tariffs the Trump administration put in place.
