‘This sucks’: Justin Trudeau gets candid on life during the pandemic
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau leveled with his nation during a COVID-19 press briefing Tuesday, saying of the ongoing pandemic it “sucks, it really, really does.”
Trudeau offered the candid assessment as coronavirus cases are rising in some parts of the country, leading to continued government measures meant to ease the bug’s spread, the CBC reported.
“This sucks, it really, really does,” Trudeau said, according to the report.
“Nobody wanted 2020 to be this way, but we do get to control how bad it gets by all of us doing our part.”
Certain Canadian provinces — including Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, Manitoba and Quebec — are in the throes of an outbreak consisting of more cases than the first wave last Spring, according to CBC.
The increase in COVID-19 patients around Toronto has contributed to some hospitals in the area nearing 100 percent capacity, the report said.
Trudeau warned the country of a “tough” winter, but urged people to remain resilient. If not, the prime minister noted, holiday celebrations may be impeded.
“Unless we’re really, really careful, there may not be the kinds of family gatherings we want to have at Christmas,” Trudeau said.
“It’s easy for us to want to throw up our hands … it’s frustrating to have to go through this situation,” he conceded.
