Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has issued a final plea ahead of Christmas for Canadians to avoid hosting or attending large gatherings in a bid to prevent post-holiday increase in COVID-19 cases.
While appealing to Canadians, the Prime Minister made it known that this is not the first time Canadians would celebrate Christmas the way it would be celebrated this year. He assured Canadians that better days would be back, as such, Canadians must protect themselves.
He said: “Our country has been through difficult Christmases before. There have been times when our grandparents or parents couldn’t be with family or had to put traditions on hold.
“Well this Christmas, it’s our turn. It’s up to us to protect each other. It’s up to us to pull together to hold on and to know however dark the winter may be, spring is coming and better days will be back.”
