TORONTO — Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says “enough is enough. Go home and stay home.”
Trudeau says staying at home is a duty and the government will enforce it if necessary.
Trudeau says he would rather not enforce it but says those who are not doing their part are putting at risk everyone else including the eventual recovery of the economy and the well being of millions of Canadians.
He says images of people out enjoying the sunshine in large groups is “extremely concerning.”
Trudeau also says the decision by the Canadian Olympic Committee to not send athletes to the Tokyo Olympics unless they’re postponed for a year is clearly the right decision.
He also says Canada has won approval to send more planes to bring Canadians home from Peru, Morocco, Spain, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala.
Trudeau made the comments outside his residence while in self isolation after his wife tested positive for the virus.
