I have never seen Justin Trudeau looking so grim as when he came out of his Rideau cottage today.
And who could blame him?
Covid cases are surging all over Canada, and models suggest that we are heading for a human catastrophe, where sickness and death are everywhere.
So when Trudeau addressed Canadians he spoke straight from the heart.
I was impressed by the firm but compassionate way he told Canadians that now is the time to tighten up.
"We can do this—we've done it before. We know what to do. We understand this virus much better than before. We need to reduce our contacts. We need to do it right now," says PM Trudeau, urging Canadians to act to slow #COVID19 spread in light of bleak new modelling data. #cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/QxrRaXBrq8— CPAC (@CPAC_TV) November 20, 2020
