Trudeau ‘open to strengthening’ international travel measures as new COVID-19 variants emerge


Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said today the federal government is open to strengthening pandemic restrictions on international travel as concerns mount about Canadians travelling abroad — but suggested the government’s pre-existing measures are still effective.

“Our measures have been very strong, but we’re always open to strengthening them as necessary,” he said when asked if the government would consider a ban on international travel.

“We’re always looking at various measures as they are effective elsewhere in the world.”

Trudeau insisted that Canada’s mandatory 14-day quarantine for those crossing into Canada has been “extraordinarily effective.”
