Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau discussed the ongoing government response to the coronavirus pandemic, including the vaccine rollout strategy as the country continues to see record numbers of COVID-19 cases.
Ministers and Government of Canada officials then provides an update on the COVID-19 pandemic following Trudeau's update.
First however, Trudeau levied perhaps his harshest-ever attack on U.S. President Donald Trump, telling Canadians on Friday that Trump, along with other U.S. politicians, "incited" the violent mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol building on Wednesday, disrupting the certification of Joe Biden’s presidential election win and leaving four dead.
Trudeau also said Friday that Canada is on track to deliver approximately 1.3 million doses of the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines by the end of February, adding that vaccinations would “scale up” in February and that the government expects to have shots in the arms of all Canadians who want them by September.
Finally, Trudeau marked one year since the Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752 crash shortly after takeoff near Tehran, telling family and friends of the victims: “I cannot imagine your pain.”
