Trudeau Says "Here We Are Again" & Gets Serious About COVID-19 Outside Of Rideau Cottage
During Justin Trudeau's COVID-19 update, he was outside of his home once again and he got serious about Canada's COVID-19 situation.
"I don't want to be here this morning," he said. "You don't want me to be here this morning. But here we are again."
I don't want to be here this morning. You don't want me to be here this morning.
He noted that COVID-19 cases are spiking across the country and Canadians need to do everything possible to slow the spread.
"We're in a moment right now where, even with all the sacrifices I know Canadians have been making these past 10 months, we are now going to have to really tighten up once again," Trudeau said.
He mentioned how we're going to have to follow public health guidelines like wearing masks and keeping contacts low for another few weeks and even for another few months.
This press conference at Rideau Cottage is a return to what happened at the beginning of the pandemic when Trudeau would give daily updates from outside of his home.
Recently, he had been doing briefings with other federal ministers at the Sir John A. Macdonald Building across from Parliament Hill and people aren't sure how to process this change.
