Trudeau to receive AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine with PMO "busy trying to book appointments" | FULL
CA, 21 Apr 2021
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland will be taking questions from the media on Tuesday afternoon after meeting with front-line pharmacists from across the country to discuss the ongoing vaccination efforts against COVID-19.
Freeland tabled Canada's first federal budget in more than two years on Monday, extending Ottawa’s COVID-19 “lifeline” for those still struggling after a difficult year — including aid for laid-off workers — another few months as it aims to pull Canada through the pandemic once and for all.
Freeland's first crack at a budget plan is also widely viewed as a pre-election platform. There is more than $100 billion in new spending over the next three years targeting a wide variety of voters. There are promises for seniors and their caregivers, working parents, students and business owners.
“This budget is about finishing the fight against COVID,” Freeland said Monday in her speech in the House of Commons.
