Trudeau warns premature reopening could send Canada ‘back into confinement’

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau warned on Saturday that if provinces move too quickly to reopen their economies, a second wave of the coronavirus pandemic could send Canada “back into confinement this summer.”

Trudeau said Canada was “not in the recovery phase yet,’ adding “We are still in the emergency phase … The vast majority of Canadians will continue to need to be very careful.”

Canada will also take a “very close look” to ensure companies are not unduly profiting, Trudeau said.

“We need to make sure no one is profiting in an exaggerated way from this crisis,” Trudeau said. “We will take a very careful look to ensure that … no one is focusing on profit before supporting Canadians.”
