Trudeau Says He’d Be ‘Supportive’ Of New Interprovincial Travel Restrictions

The PM said he’d back restrictions to stem the third wave of COVID-19.

Justin Trudeau has confirmed that he’d be prepared to back interprovincial travel restrictions in Canada, in an attempt to prevent the spread of COVID-19 across the country.

Speaking to CBC Radio on April 14, the prime minister was asked whether he’d support restricting travel to and from certain provinces to help slow the third wave of the pandemic.

 

In particular, Trudeau was asked to comment on Premier John Horgan’s recent indications that he is considering limiting travel in and out of B.C.

“Every step of the way, I’ve been supporting premiers and territorial leaders on what they need to do to keep people safe,” Trudeau said.

The PM continued, “As we saw with the Atlantic bubble, as we saw with the Arctic territories, they make decisions around closing off the regions. That is something that we are supportive of.”

He added that the decision to shut domestic borders would be down to the respective provincial government, while the federal government’s role is to “help make those decisions easier […] by providing income assistance and financial supports for businesses.”
