CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC.THE LEADERS OF THE WORLD METVIRTUALLY BY VIDEO CONFERENCETHIS MORNING AND WE ARE STANDINGBY TO HEAR MORE ABOUT THAT FROMJUSTIN TRUDEAU, CANADA'S PRIMEMINISTER, AS WE AWAIT HIS DAILYBRIEFING WHICH WILL HAPPEN IN 15MINUTE'S TIME.TO GIVE YOU A STATE OF PLAY HEREIN THIS COUNTRY, LET ME BRINGYOU UP TO DATE ON THE RECENTNUMBERS.MORE THAN 3400 CASES, CONFIRMEDCASES OF COVID-19, AT LEAST 36DEATHS, NEARLY HALF OF CANADA'SCOVID-19 CASES ARE BEINGACQUIRED THROUGH COMMUNITYSPREAD WHICH IS, OF COURSE, ONEOF THE REASONS WHY PUBLIC HEALTHOFFICIALS AND GOVERNMENTOFFICIALS ARE TELLING PEOPLE TOSTAY INSIDE AND LIMIT THEIRSOCIALIZING AND TO SELF ISOLATEAS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.IT CAME THROUGH TRAVEL BUT GIVENMUCH OF THE TRAVEL HAS NOW BEENSHUT DOWN INTO THIS COUNTRY ORHEAVILY RESTRICTED, THECOMMUNITY SPREAD HAS BECOME THEBIGGEST CAUSE OF THIS OR ATLEAST HALF OF THE CAUSE OF THISAND IS THE MAJOR CONCERN FORPUBLIC HEALTH OFFICIALS.EVERY PROVINCE AND TERRITORY HASNOW DECLARED SOME SORT OF STATEOF EMERGENCY, HEALTH EMERGENCYOR GENERAL STATE OF EMERGENCY.PROVINCES ARE LIMITING WHO ISCOMING INTO THEIR PROVINCES ANDTELLING PEOPLE TO SELF-ISOLATEFOR 14 DAYS EVEN IF THEY'VETRAVELED WITHIN CANADA.I JUST WANT TO SHOW EVERYONE ASHOT, A PHOTO, IF I CAN, OF THEG20 LEADERS IN THISEXTRAORDINARY TIME MEETING ANDVIRTUALLY.ALL OF THEM AROUND THE WORLDGETTING TOGETHER FOR A LARGETELECONFERENCE.I BELIEVE YOU CAN SEE OUR PRIMEMINISTER RIGHT IN THE MIDDLETHERE.THAT CALL, AN ATTEMPT TO TALKNOT JUST ABOUT CONTROLLING THEPANDEMIC AND MAKING SURE THEWORLD'S HEALTH ORGANIZATION HASENOUGH MONEY AND CAPACITY BUTMAKING SURE THEY CAN SHORE UPTHE ECONOMIC SYSTEM.THERE HE IS, A NICE CLOSE-UP OFHIM THERE.SO, OBVIOUSLY, THE PRIMEMINISTER WILL TALK ABOUT THATWHEN HE HEAR FROM HIM IN 15MINUTE'S TIME.LET ME BRING IN VASSEY KAPELOSAND CATHERINE CULLEN.SO OBVIOUSLY THIS MEETING COMESAFTER A G7 MEETING WHERE THEREWAS A LOT OF DIFFICULTY, ITHINK, WITH THE SECRETARY OFSTATE, MIKE POMPEO, BECAUSE THEUNITED STATES WANTED THESTATEMENT WHICH NEVER CAME OUTTO INCLUDE SOME LANGUAGE THATTHE PRESIDENT HAS BEENPROPAGATING INSTEAD OF CALLINGIT COVID-19, TRYING TO CALL ITTHE CHINA VIRUS AND WUHAN VIRUSAND THAT DIDN'T WORK FOR ANY OFTHE OTHER G7 FOREIGN MINISTERS,SO NO STATEMENT CAME OUT OF THATCALL.I WOULD IMAGINE, SOUNDS LIKE,THAT THE G20 CALL WENT BETTER.VASSY, I THINK YOU JUST FINISHEDINTERVIEWING THE MINISTER OFFOREIGN AFFAIRS?>> Vassy: I DID.I DON'T WANT TO PREEMPTEVERYTHING HE SAYS.HE DID NOT WANT TO OVERSTEP THEPRIME MINISTER.BUT I WILL MAKE THIS POINT AND ITHINK THIS IS WHAT, FOR ME, WASTHE SORT OF SUBSTANCE OF MY LINEOF QUESTIONING AND HAS TO DOWITH WHAT YOU BROUGHT UP.THAT IS THE U.S. RESPONSE VERSUSWHAT WE ARE SEEING IN OTHERPARTS OF THE WORLD, INCLUDINGTHIS COUNTRY.THERE IS A DESIRE ON THE PART OFTHE G20 AND G7 TO HAVE SOMELEVEL OF COORDINATION IN THATRESPONSE AND THE GLOW OFCOMMUNICATION REMAINING OPEN ORMORE OPEN, I GUESS, THAN NORMAL.WHAT'S IMPORTANT WHEN IT COMESTO THE U.S. RESPONSE AND YOU'VEBEEN TALKING ABOUT IT FOR A FEWDAYS ON THIS SPECIAL, IS SORT OFWHAT IS HAPPENING WITH THEPUBLIC HEALTH ASPECT OF THISSOUTH OF THE BORDER ANDPARTICULARLY IN NEW YORK STATE,WHERE WE ARE SEEING MASSIVEINCREASES IN THE VIRUS, IN THEINCIDENTS OF THE VIRUS, AS WELLAS HOSPITALIZATIONS AND DEATHSBECAUSE OF IT, TOO.THE PRESIDENT HAS COME OUT FORTHE PAST 48 HOURS, A BIT LONGER,ACTUALLY, AND SAID WE WANT THECOUNTRY BACK UP AND RUNNING BYEASTER, WE THINK THAT'SPOSSIBLE.AND HE'S FOCUSING ON THEECONOMIC IMPACT ON ALL OF THIS,WHICH, OF COURSE, WILL BE HUGEAND NOBODY IS ARGUING AGAINSTTHAT.IT RAISES THE QUESTION FOR THISGOVERNMENT IN HOW IT APPROACHESITS OWN RELATIONSHIP WITH THEUNITED STATES AND MORE TO THEPOINT HOW IT APPROACHES THEBORDER.THEY HAVE TALKED AT LENGTH HOWUNPRECEDENTED THE RESTRICTIONSAT THE BORDER ARE.IN OUR INTERVIEW, MINISTERFRANCOIS-PHILIPPE CHAMPAGNE SAYSTHEY'VE CLOSED DOWN THAT BORDER.HE WAS EXTREMELY HESITANT TOACKNOWLEDGE THEY MIGHT HAVE TOGO FURTHER.IF CIRCUMSTANCES DO CONTINUE TOCHANGE, IF, IN FACT, THE U.S.DOES GO AGAINST THE ADVICE OFPUBLIC HEALTH OFFICIALS ANDREOPEN THE ECONOMY IN TWO WEEKS,DOES THAT REQUIRE EVEN MOREAGGRESSIVE MEASURES AT THEBORDER FOR THIS GOVERNMENT?SO FAR, NOBODY HAS REALLY BITTENON THAT, BUT I THINK THATQUESTION WILL SORT OF INCREASEIN ITS SIGNIFICANCE OVER THECOMING DAYS IF THE RHETORICCOMING FROM THE WHITE HOUSE ALSOCONTINUES DOWN THIS PATH.AND SO I THINK THE PRIMEMINISTER WILL LIKELY GETQUESTIONS ON THAT.I THINK THAT IMPACTS THERELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THEINFORMATION GOING ON.I THINK WE'LL HEAR MORE WHERETHAT ECONOMIC BENEFIT ISCONCERNED AND I THINK THEY AREANXIOUS TO KEEP DRIVING HOME THEMESSAGE AROUND THE EMERGENCYBENEFIT, WHO QUALIFIES, HOW MANYMORE PEOPLE CAN ACCESS IT ANDHOW THAT PROCESS UNFOLDS.I'M TOLD THAT WILL BE A BIG PARTOF THE MESSAGE TODAY.>> Rosemary: I SHOULD TELLPEOPLE, BECAUSE WE GOT MANYQUESTIONS AS WE WERE TRYING TOUNDERSTAND IT, THERE'S ANARTICLE OUR WEBSITE WHERE ITWILL SPELL OUT THE MANYQUESTIONS YOU HAVE.JUST ON THE ISSUE OF CANADA ANDTHE U.S., AN ONGOING ISSUE GIVENTHE SPIKE IN THE NUMBER OFCASES, WHICH IS MUCH HIGHER WHENYOU LOOK AT THE CURB OF THEGLOBE THAN WHAT'S HAPPENING INCANADA.BUT THE ECONOMY IS ALSO UNDERENORMOUS AMOUNT OF STRAIN THERE,AS WELL.THREE MILLION AMERICANS ARE NOWSEEKING EMPLOYMENT BENEFITS ANDTHAT'S THE HIGHEST ON RECORDSINCE, I THINK, THE EARLY '80S,WHEN THEY WERE THIS A DRAMATICRECESSION AND THEY PASSED THEIROWN MASSIVE STIMULUS PACKAGE TOA TRILLION DOLLARS AT THE SAMETIME WE DID.I WILL JUST GET CATHERINE CULLENTO WAY IN ON THE QUARANTINE ACTWHICH DID TAKE EFFECT LAST NIGHTAT MIDNIGHT AND WE'RE HOPINGFROM BETTER MESSAGING ON THATFRONT, FROM THE PRIME MINISTER,BECAUSE IT WAS A FAIRLYCONFUSING MESSAGE YESTERDAY.SO MAYBE YOU CAN HELP USUNDERSTAND IT AS WELL.>> WE'RE HEARING A LOT OFQUESTIONS ABOUT THAT AND PEOPLEASKING HOW THEY ARE PARTICULARLYOR THEIR LOVED ONES MIGHT BEAFFECTED BY THE QUARANTINE ACT.SOME OF THE QUESTIONS, WE HAVESOME ANSWERS TO.WHAT WERE ARE THE POTENTIALPENALTIES?IT'S IN PLACE AS OF MIDNIGHT, GOINTO A 14-DAY QUARANTINE.ACCORDING TO THE PENALTIES, AMAXIMUM PENALTY, UP TO $750,000OR SIX MONTHS AND/OR SIX MONTHSIMPRISONMENT AND OFFICIALSPOINTED OUT IN THAT COMMUNIQUE,IF YOU HAVE DONE SOMETHING WHEREYOU HAVE JEOPARDIZED SOMEBODY'SLIFE, SO IF YOU'RE CONTAGIOUSAND IRRESPONSIBLE, THE PENALTIESSCAN BE UP TO A MILLION DOLLARS,THREE YEARS IN PRISON OR BOTH.I KNOW ANOTHER THING A LOT OFPEOPLE ARE WONDERING ABOUT ISWHAT HAPPENS IF I'M TRANSITINGTHROUGH AN AIRPORT?WE KNOW MANY FLIGHTS ARE BEINGPUSHED INTO VANCOUVER, TORONTO,MONTREAL, BUT WHAT IF YOU LIVEIN WINNIPEG OR HERE IN OTTAWA?OFFICIALS ARE SAYING AS LONG YOUARE NOT SYMPTOMATIC OR SHOWINGSYMPTOMS OF COVID-19, YOU CANGET ON THAT CONNECTING FLIGHTAND THEY ALSO SAY YOU CAN GET ONPUBLIC TRANSIT, BUT AGAIN, ONLYIF YOU'RE NOT SYMPTOM QUICK.ATIC.IF YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BEQUARANTINING, IT'S NOT CLEAR WHYYOU WOULD BE ALLOWED TO GET ONPUBLIC TRANSIT.PEOPLE HAVE A LOT OF QUESTIONSAND PICKING UP ON SOME VASSYSAID THAT IS RELATED, THISMANDATORY QUARANTINE IS ARESPONSE TO FURTHER TIGHTENINGTHE BORDERS BUT WHEN IT COMES TOTHE UNITED STATES, THERE'S AREAL QUESTION ABOUT WHAT CANADACAN DO.THEY HAVE TO CONTINUE ORSEEMINGLY, THE FLOW OF TRADE,RIGHT?WE KNOW FOOD, MEDICAL DEVICES,SO MANY IMPORTANT THINGS COMEFROM THE UNITED STATES ANDCANADA IS SO DEPENDENT.SO HOW DO YOU FURTHER TIGHTENTHE REGULATIONS IF, INDEED,THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT TO DO?I DON'T THINK THAT'S CLEAR?>> Rosemary: THE GOVERNMENT DIDCONFIRM THIS MORNING WE HAVE ANEW AMBASSADOR IN THE UNITEDSTATES, KRISTEN HILLMAN, WHO WASTHERE THROUGH THE NAFTANEGOTIATIONS AND HAS A LOT OFRELATIONSHIPS IN WASHINGTON.I LEAVE YOU TO COLLEAGUES, IFYOU DON'T MIND, AND WE'LL COMEBACK TO YOU AS SOON AS THE PRIMEMINISTER EMERGES FROM RIDEAUCOTTAGE BUT I WANT TO GO TOKALMIR, WHO IS A REGISTEREDNURSE WHO TESTED POSITIVE DIDN'TSIGNED UP TO EASE NURSINGSHORTAGES BY OFFERING TO DO SOMETELEHEALTH CALLS.SHE IS SELF-ISOLATING NOW ATHOME AND SHE JOINS ME ON THEPHONE.HOW ARE YOU FEELING?>> STILL FEELING IT BY THE SIGNOF MY VOICE BUT I'M FEELINGFINE, THANK YOU.I KNOW OTHER CANADIANS AREEXPERIENCING WORSE THAN I AM ANDI'M THINKING OF THEM AND WE'LLGET THROUGH THIS TOGETHER.>> Rosemary: SO MANY PEOPLE WHODON'T HAVE THIS AND TRYING TOUNDERSTAND WHAT IT FEELS LIKE,CAN YOU GIVE THEM A SENSE OF HOWYOU'RE FEELING OR HOW IT FEELSDIFFERENTLY THAN A PREVIOUSILLNESS OR ANOTHER KIND OFILLNESS?>> WELL, I CAN TELL YOU THAT,HONESTLY, I'VE BEEN FEELING MILDFLU-LIKE SYMPTOMS THROUGHOUT.IT COMES AND GOES AND SEEMS LIKEONE OF THE WORST FLUS THAT YOUCAN HAVE.THAT'S WHAT IT FEELS LIKE.AND YOU HAVE SOME GOOD DAYS,SOME BAD DAYS AND TODAY SEEMSLIKE A BETTER DAY FOR ME.>> Rosemary: YOU ARE AREGISTERED NURSE AND OBVIOUSLY,YOU KNOW ALL ABOUT PUBLIC HEALTHAND I IMAGINE YOU WEREPROTECTING YOURSELF.WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU ABOUTCOVID-19 AND HOW CONTAGIOUS ITIS?>> WELL, I THINK WHAT'SIMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND IS THATWE NEED TO BE EXTREMELY MINDFULAND FOLLOW THE RECOMMENDATIONSTHAT OUR PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICIALSARE REMINDING US EVERY SINGLEDAY.AND JUST KNOW THAT NO ONE ISIMMUNE TO IT.WE ALL HAVE TO BE VERY, VERYCAREFUL.IT IS IN OUR COMMUNITIES AND YOUCAN BE A HEALTHY INDIVIDUAL LIKEMYSELF, THAT WAS PRACTICINGSOCIAL DISTANCING AND WANTED TOMAKE SURE I'M WASHING MY HAND.JUST KNOW YOU HAVE TO BE VERY,VERY MINDFUL OF WHAT YOU'REDOING.SO PLEASE FOLLOW THE EXPERTADVICE.STAY AT HOME.I CAN'T STRESS THAT ENOUGH.STAY AT HOME AND PRACTISE SOCIALAND PHYSICAL DISTANCING, SELFISOLATE.WE OWE IT TO CANADIANS, TO OURFRONT-LINE WORKERS, TO OURSENIORS AND EVERY SINGLE ONE OFUS HAS A PART TO PLAY IN TRYINGTO GET THROUGH THIS TOGETHER.>> Rosemary: I KNOW YOUANSWERED THE CALL TO BE ATELEHEALTH NURSE.WERE YOU ABLE TO EVEN START THATBEFORE YOU GOT ILL?AND IF SO, WHY WAS IT SOIMPORTANT FOR YOU TO GETINVOLVED IN THAT?>> WELL, HONESTLY, ROSIE, WHEN ISAW THE INITIAL CALL FOR ACTIONTO THE NURSING SHORTAGE, THEREWAS NO HESITATION THAT I WAS NOTGOING TO PUT MY HAND UP.HELPING PEOPLE AT THE FRONTLINES IS MY PASSION AND I'VEWORKED AT THE FRONT LINES BEFOREGETTING INVOLVED IN POLITICS.IT'S ONE OF THE REASONS WHY IGOT INVOLVED IN POLITICS AND ITWAS AN ABSOLUTE NO-BRAINER FORME TO REGISTER TO PUT MY NAMEFORWARD.I STILL REMAIN ON THAT LIST.I LOOK FORWARD TO CONTRIBUTINGTO THE FRONT LINES WHEN I'MCALLED.I, UNFORTUNATELY, DIDN'T HAVE ACHANCE TO, BUT I LOOK FORWARD TODOING THAT EVEN VIRTUALLY NOWTHAT I'M HOME.BUT I ALSO WANTED TO MAKE SURETHEIR USE MY VOICE TO SHED THELIGHT ON THE REALITY THAT WECOULD POSSIBLY HAVE A SHORTAGEOF NURSES AND AMPLIFY THEMESSAGE.I'M SO PROUD THAT OVER 4500RETIRED OR NONPRACTICING NURSESTHAT HAVE SIGNED UP FOR IT ANDHAVE REGISTERED WITH OURVOLUNTEERS AND I'M SO INCREDIBLYPROUD OF THIS GROUP AND CAN'TTHANK THEM ENOUGH FOR WHATTHEY'RE DOING.>> Rosemary: DO YOU HAVE ANYIDEA HOW YOU GOT IT, HOW YOU GOTTHE VIRUS?>> WELL, AS I SAID, I THINK IT'SA WIDE-SPREAD VIRUS AND SO MANYPEOPLE MAY HAVE IT AND ARE STILLWALKING AROUND IN OUR GROCERYSTORES AND WALKING AROUNDOUTSIDE.THEY THINK AS DR. TAM SAID, THISVIRUS SEES NO COLOUR OR AGE.WE HAVE TO STAY AT HOME ANDPRACTISE PHYSICAL DISTANCING ANDIT'S SO IMPORTANT WE LISTEN TOTHE EXPERTS AND I COMMEND THELEADERSHIP OF DR. TAM, AND OURPRIME MINISTER.>> Rosemary: JUST TO BE CLEAR,IT WAS SOMEONE THAT YOU MET,SOMEONE IN THE COMMUNITY ORSOMETHING LIKE THAT?>> AS I SAID, WE SIMPLY DON'TKNOW BECAUSE JUST LIKE EVERYONEELSE, EVERY OTHER CANADIAN, I'MTRYING TO DO OUR PART FROM -- IDID TRAVEL FROM OTTAWA TOTORONTO WHEN WE CAME BACK AFTERTHE HOUSE FROZE AND I DID GO TOMY OFFICE ONCE OR TWICE AND DIDTRY TO DO GROCERY SHOPPINGBEFORE I KNEW THAT I HAD TO BEPREPARED.AND AGAIN, I THINK IT'S JUSTIMPORTANT FOR US TO LISTEN TOTHE ADVICE OF OUR PUBLIC HEALTHOFFICIALS.PLEASE STAY AT HOME AND FOLLOWTHE INSTRUCTIONS OF OUR PUBLICHEALTH OFFICIALS EVERY SINGLEDAY.>> Rosemary: I THINK YOU TALKEDTO THE PRIME MINISTER YESTERDAYAND, OF COURSE, HIS WIFE, SOPHIEGREGOIRE-TRUDEAU, IS SORT OFCOMING ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THISNOW.DID HE HAVE ANY ADVICE IN TERMSOF HOW TO KEEP WORKING AND HOWTO COPE WITH THE VIRUS ITSELF?>> YES.I WAS EXTREMELY TOUCHED THAT HETOOK THE TIME TO CALL ME,CONSIDERING ALL OF HIS OTHERPRIORITIES.HE CALLED TO JUST CHECK IN TOSEE HOW I WAS DOING.ALSO TO SHARE HIS EXPERIENCE, ASYOU MENTIONED, HAVING BEENTHROUGH IT WITH SOPHIE AND SOMEOF THE UPS AND DOWNS OFSYMPTOMS.IT WAS REALLY NICE TO HAVE HIMGIVE TIPS WORKING FROM HOME,WHICH I KNOW SO MANY CANADIANSARE DOING RIGHT NOW.IT WAS ALSO IMPORTANT TO CATCHUP CONSIDERING WE HAVEN'T SEENEACH OTHER SINCE THE HOUSE ROSEAND HAD A CHANCE TO TELL HIMWHAT I'VE

FOR TWO BILLION IN AIDFOR DEVELOPING COUNTRIES TOFIGHT THE CORONAVIRUS, INCLUDINGHELP WITH TESTING KITS IN AFRICAAND OTHER GEAR NEEDED?WE TALKED ABOUT A NUMBER OFTHINGS, ABOUT THE NEED FORCOORDINATED GLOBAL RESPONSE ANDTHAT IS SOMETHING THAT THE G20IS PARTICULARLY WELL-SUITED TOMOVE FORWARD ON AND WE NEED TOMAKE SURE THAT WE'RE CONTINUINGTO EXCHANGE INFORMATION ANDALIGN IN THE ACTIONS WE TAKE.WE TALKED ABOUT THE NEED TOFLATTEN THE GLOBAL CURVE OF THISPANDEMIC, WHICH MEANS BEYONDJUST INDIVIDUAL COUNTRIES DOINGWHAT'S NECESSARY FOR THEMSELVES,WE NEED TO WORK TOGETHER TO HAVEAN IMPACT THAT GOES BEYOND OURBORDERS.WE TALKED ABOUT THE NEED FORGLOBAL ECONOMIC SUPPORT, FORCITIZENS, FOR BUSINESSES.THE G20 REPRESENTS 85% OF THEGLOBAL GDP AND WE KNOW THAT WEHAVE THE CAPACITY TO STAVE OFFAND TO POSITIVELY IMPACT THEECONOMY AT THIS TIME OFSIGNIFICANT STRESS AND SO, WEPLEDGE TO WORK TOGETHER AND WEALSO TALKED ABOUT THE NEED HELPVULNERABLE COUNTRIES THAT DON'THAVE EITHER THE SCIENCE OR THEHEALTH SYSTEMS TO BE ABLE TOKEEP THEIR POPULATIONS SAFE,INCLUDING THROUGH INVESTMENTSTHROUGH WORLD GLOBALORGANIZATIONS LIKE THE U.N. ORTHE W.H.O. OR THE WORLD BANK.WE ALSO SPECIFICALLY TALKEDABOUT THE CHALLENGES FACINGAFRICA AND HOW WE WILL BE THERETO SUPPORT AFRICA AS THEY FACETHIS PANDEMIC, AS WELL.>> SO DOES THAT MEAN -- THEQUESTION WAS, IS CANADA ANDOTHER COUNTRIES SENDING MONEYAND ADDITIONALLY, SAUDI ARABIAAS THE CHAIR OF THE G20, DID THEPRICE WAR OVER OIL PRICES COMEUP AND WHAT'S HAPPENING THERE?AS I SPOKE ABOUT YESTERDAY, WEWILL BE PARTICIPATING ININTERNATIONAL EFFORTS TO FIGHTTHIS VIRUS.WE KNOW THAT SUPPORT FORVULNERABLE COUNTRIES WHO ARESTRUGGLING WITH THE ABILITY TOCOMBAT THIS VIRUS IS NOT JUSTABOUT BEING ALTRUISTIC BUTPROVIDING CANADIANS AS WELL.THIS MAY FACE RESURGENCES ONCEWE HAVE HANDLED IT IN CANADA ANDOUR ABILITY TO MINIMIZE THOSERESURGENCES WILL BE LINKED TOOUR ABILITY TO HELP AND WORKWITH COUNTRIES IN MORE DIRESITUATIONS.(SPEAKING FRENCH).>> WE RECOGNIZE THATPARTICIPATING IN GLOBAL AID TOCOMBAT COVID-19 IS NOT JUST AQUESTION OF ALTRUISM.IT'S A QUESTION OF DOING THERIGHT THING FOR CANADIANS.WE KNOW THAT PREVENTING ANYRESURGENCE OF THE VIRUS INSEVERAL MONTHS, ONCE WE HAVECONTROLLED IT IN CANADA, WILLREQUIRE CONCRETE ACTION INVULNERABLE COUNTRIES RIGHT NOW.AND THAT'S WHY WE WANT TOPARTICIPATE IN THE U.N.'SEFFORTS TO HELP THOSE COUNTRIESIN DISTRESS.(SPEAKING FRENCH).>> Rosemary: THAT IS THE PRIMEMINISTER OF CANADA GIVING US HISDAILY UPDATE FROM HIS HOME,RIDEAU COTTAGE, HERE IN THENATION'S CAPITAL.HIS SELF-ISOLATION IS OFFICIALLYOVER BUT WE DON'T KNOW WHETHERHE WILL BE WORKING FROM HOME ORCOMING INTO THE OFFICE FROM TIMETO TIME OR WHAT THE NEXT STEPSARE, BUT THAT'S WHAT WE HAVEBEEN TOLD.SO A FEW BITS OF NEWS THERE FROMTHE PRIME MINISTER.THE MAIN MESSAGE, REALLY,REITERATING THE BENEFIT THAT ISNOW GOING TO BE AVAILABLE TOCANADIANS, THE EMERGENCYBENEFIT.AND THAT THAT PORTAL WILL SOONBE OPEN AND MANY OF YOU AFFECTEDBY THE PANDEMIC.BUT LITTLE BITS OF NEWS, TOO,THAT WE WANT TO GET TO WITH MYCOLLEAGUES.VASSY, I'LL START WITH YOU ANDCLOSER TO THE END.THERE'S BEEN A GLOBAL NEWSREPORT THAT THE UNITED STATES ISCONTEMPLATING SENDING TROOPS TOITS NORTHERN BORDERS SO BETWEENCANADA IS THE U.S.IT SOUNDED TO ME LIKE THE PRIMEMINISTER HAD THOSECONVERSATIONS?>> Vassy: IT SOUNDED LIKE HEESSENTIALLY CONFIRMED THE REPORTAND EMPHASIZED HIS WAY OF, IGUESS, CHARACTERIZING THEDISCUSSIONS SO FAR WITH THAT.RIGHT NOW CANADA AND THE U.S.SHARE THE LARGEST DEMILITARIZEDBORDER AND IT'S THEIR DESIRE TOKEEP IT THAT WAY.THAT DOES CONFIRM THOSEDISCUSSIONS ARE TAKING PLACE ANDIT DOES PRESENT, I GUESS, AWHOLE NEW HOST OF COMPLEXITIESFOR THIS GOVERNMENT TO DEAL WITHWHEN IT COMES TO THAT BORDERRIGHT NOW AND THE RELATIONSHIPWITH THE UNITED STATES.WE HAD JUST, PRIOR TO THIS PRESSCONFERENCE, TALKING ABOUTWHETHER CANADA WOULD TAKE MOREAGGRESSIVE MEASURES ABOUTREOPENING ABOUT THE ECONOMY ANDTHE PRIME MINISTER WAS ASKEDABOUT THAT, AS WELL, ANDREFRAINED, AGAIN, FROM SAYINGMORE AGGRESSIVE MEASURES WEREEVEN BEING CONSIDERED.INSTEAD, HE HIGHLIGHTED THEINTEGRATION OF THE TWOECONOMIES, THE RELATIONSHIP,RATHER, BETWEEN THE TWOCOUNTRIES, SOMETHING HE DIDAGAIN WHEN ANSWERING THEQUESTION ABOUT THE POSSIBILITYOF THE BORDER BEING MILITARIZED.I THINK IT WILL BE INTERESTINGTO FIND OUT TO WHAT DEGREE ISTHE U.S. DOING SO AND IT HAD TODO WITH PEOPLE CROSSING INBETWEEN POINTS OF ENTRY.MY UNDERSTANDING LAST WEEK, THENUMBER HAD DECREASED A BIT.THOUGH, THERE WERE PEOPLE ASPART OF THE AGREEMENT TORESTRICT THE ORDER MADE ANAGREEMENT TO TURN ANYONE BACK.THAT WAS A MAJOR SHIFT INPOLICY, TOO, BECAUSE WE HAD BEENTAKING PEOPLE WHO WERE WALKINGIN BETWEEN THOSE OFFICIAL POINTSOF ENTRY AND THEY WERE GOINGTHROUGH THE ASYLUM SYSTEM INTHIS COUNTRY.SO THAT AGREEMENT ESSENTIALLYMADE IT SO THEY WOULD BE TURNEDBACK TO THE UNITED STATES,SHOULD THEY DO THAT.SO CURIOUS TO FIND OUT WHAT THEJUSTIFICATION IS FOR NEEDING AGREATER MILITARY PRESENCE,ESPECIALLY ONE THAT HAPPENS TOBE -- WOULD IT TAKE THE FORM,FOR EXAMPLE, OF BOOTS ON THEGROUND, OR USING DRONES OR AIRSURVEILLANCE OR THINGS OF THATNATURE.>> Rosemary: LET ME TURN TOCATHERINE CULL NETWORKS.EN.TODAY THE MESSAGE IS MUCHCLEARER FROM THE PRIME MINISTERIN TERMS OF WHY THEY'RE DOINGTHIS AND WHAT THE EXPECTATIONIS.>> SAYING AGAIN AND AGAIN MANYPEOPLE HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING THERULES, BUT A SIGNIFICANT ENOUGHNUMBER HAVEN'T THAT THEY FELTTHEY NEEDED TO ENACT THIS.WE HEARD HE SHOULD HAVE GIVENPEOPLE THAT OPPORTUNITY NOT TOFOLLOW THE RULES AND WE'VE BEENREPORTING ON CBC NEWS, FOREXAMPLE, RVS LINED UP IN BORDERTOWNS, COMING ACROSS FROM THEBORDER THAT ALL OF THESE PEOPLESTOPPED AT A WALMART TO GETGROCERIES AND SUPPLIES.THE GOVERNMENT IS SAYING THIS ISNOT WHAT WE WANT TO SEE ANDTALKING ABOUT THE CONSEQUENCES,FINES OF UP TO $750,000, TIME INJAIL IF YOU'RE ENDANGERINGSOMEONE'S LIFE.HE WAS ASKED, ARE YOUENCOURAGING CANADIANS TO REPORTON ONE ANOTHER?HE SAID PUBLIC HEALTH WILL BEDOING THE FOLLOWUP AND WE KNOWFROM VASSY'S INTERVIEW YESTERDAYTHAT THE MINISTER SAID THEYDON'T HAVE THE RESOURCES TOCHECK UP ON EVERYBODY ALL OF THETIME.THIS WILL BE SPOT CHECKS AND ITWILL BE RANDOMIZED.BUT HE SAID ENFORCEMENT WILLHAPPEN WHETHER THROUGH POLICEOFFICERS OR OTHER ENFORCEMENTOFFICERS.IT'S INTERESTING TO NOTE, WEWERE SPEAKING TO THE NOVA SCOTIARCMP BECAUSE, OF COURSE, NOVASCOTIA IS ASKING ANYONE WHO HASCOMING FROM OUT OF PROVINCE,CROSSING INTO THE PROVISIONALBOUNDARIES, YOU HAVE TOSELF-ISOLATE FOR 14 DAY.POLICE THERE SAY THEY HAVEN'TISSUED A TICKET YET AND THIS HASBEEN GOING ON SINCE SUNDAY.THEY'RE TRYING TO EDUCATEPEOPLE.THIS IS NOT JUST ABOUT BORDERCROSSING BUT SOCIAL DISTANCING,AS WELL.ONE OF THE QUESTIONS IN ALL OFTHE OF THIS WILL BE, HOW WILL ITBE ENFORCED AND HOW AGGRESSIVELYWILL IT BE ENFORCED?THE MESSAGE IS GO HOME, STAYHOME, DO NOT PASS GO.>> Rosemary: THERE ARE PEOPLERATTING OUT THEIR NEIGHBOURS.THERE WAS A STORY THIS MORNINGON THE RADIO, A GATHERING ACROSSTHE RIVER IN GATINEAU.I GUESS A NEIGHBOUR CALLED ANDTHERE WERE SIX PEOPLE IN ANAPARTMENT AND POLICE CAME, THEYWERE FINED FOR THE NOISE ANDFINED FOR THE GATHERING.IT'S NOT LIKE IT'S NOT HAPPENINGAND THAT AUTHORITIES WON'TENFORCE AS NEEDED.I'LL PUT YOU TWO ON PAUSE FOR AMOMENT.THIS ISSUE OF PEOPLE COMINGACROSS THE BORDER, COMING BACKINTO THE COUNTRY AND NOTSELF-ISOLATING FOR 14 DAYS, THATISN'T WORKING AND DAVE SEGULINSHAS BEEN DIGGING INTO THIS ANDFOUND PEOPLE NOT BEING UPFRONTAND GETTING ON FLIGHTS, EVEN, IFTHEY'RE TRYING TO GET BACK HOME.>> Reporter: WELL, I'VE BEENLOOKING SPECIFICALLY INTO THEAIR FLIGHT REGULATIONS AND THEGOVERNMENT IS PREPARED TO TAKEMANDATORY LEGAL MEASURES TOQUARANTINE PEOPLE ONCE THEYARRIVE HERE, BUT THE MEASURESBEFORE YOU GET ON THE AIRPLANE,WHEN YOU'RE ABROAD AND TRYING TOGET BACK TO CANADA, THOSE AREVOLUNTARY.IT'S AN HONOUR SYSTEM AND PEOPLEARE CHEATING IT AND YOU CAN KINDOF UNDERSTAND WHY.WE'RE THIS THE MIDDLE OF AGLOBAL PANDEMIC.PEOPLE ARE GROWING DESPERATE ANDIF THEY HAVE SYMPTOMS AND ARESICK, ILL, YOU'RE AWAY FROMFAMILY, YOU'RE AWAY FROMCANADIAN HEALTHCARE AND YOU'REPROBABLY IN A PART OF THE WORLDTHAT ISN'T YOUR COMFORT ZONE ANDYOU WANT TO GET BACK.IF YOU'RE FACED WITH ONLY FLEE EQUESTIONS, DO YOU HAVE FEVER,SORE THROAT, WE'RE LEARNINGPEOPLE ARE TEMPTED TO BEDISHONEST AND COME BACK.BUT THAT'S CREATING A HOST OFOTHER PROBLEMS.IT WAS INTERESTING IN THE LACKOF ANSWER TO THIS ISSUE FROM THEPRIME MINISTER TODAY BECAUSETHEY'RE NOT WILLING TO TAKE ANYSORT OF MANDATORY MEASURES, NOTESTING FOR FEVERS OR PHYSICALTESTS THAT WOULD SCREENPASSENGERS BEFORE THEY GET ONTHE PLANES.AND WE'RE HEARING FROM FLIGHTATTENDANTS AND PASSENGERS ABOARDTHOSE PLANES VERY WORRIED ABOUTPEOPLE WITH EXTREME SYMPTOMS WHOARE ON FLIGHTS THAT THEY AREBEING EXPOSED ON THOSE AIRCRAFT.AND WE'RE LEARNING, ALSO, THATAIR FLIGHT ATTENDANTS, SOME ARENOW CONTRACTING COVID-19.WE ASSUME SOME OF THAT EXPOSUREIS AT WORK.SO IT'S A COMPLEX SET OF ISSUES,BUT RIGHT NOW, THE ADVICE FROMTHE PRIME MINISTER IS, DON'T GETON A FLIGHT, BUT THERE ISNOTHING REALLY PREVENTING PEOPLEFROM KEEPING THEIR SYMPTOMSHIDDEN.>> Rosemary: WHEN THEY GETHERE, THEY WILL HAVE TO BE UNDERQUARANTINE AND THAT WILL SOMEHOWBE MONITORED AND ENFORCED AND ALOT TO EXPECT FROM THE AIRLINESTHEMSELVES, WHO HAVE TO DO THESETESTS.THANK YOU.I THINK WE ACTUALLY HAVE, BEFOREI GO TO DR. PETER LIN, I THINKWE HAVE THE DECLARATION THAT YOUWILL HAVE TO AGREE TO WHEN YOUCOME BACK INTO THIS COUNTRY,BECAUSE IT DOES LOOK SLIGHTLYDIFFERENT THAN IF YOU HAVE BEENTHROUGH CUSTOMS OR ACROSS THEBORDER LATELY.THIS IS WHAT IT SAYS NOW.I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WE MUSTSELF-ISOLATE FOR 14 DAYS TOPREVENT THE POTENTIAL SPREAD OFCOVID-19.SO YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT AND,OBVIOUSLY, THEY'RE TAKING YOURINFORMATION DOWN.IF THERE ARE GOING TO BE SPOTCHECKS BY PUBLIC HEALTHOFFICIALS, EVEN JUST CALLS TOSEE WHERE YOU ARE, THAT IS THEBEGINNING OF THAT ENFORCEMENT.LET ME BRING IN DR. PETER LIN INTORONTO.DR. LIN, OBVIOUSLY, THERE ISCONCERN, BASED ON WHAT DAVE HASBEEN REPORTING AND THE OTHERSTORIES WE'RE HEARING ABOUTSNOWBIRDS, FOR INSTANCE, COMINGBACK ACROSS THE BORDER AND GOINGABOUT THEIR ERRANDS BEFORE THEYGO HOME.DO YOU THINK THAT THE THREAT OFSERIOUS FINES IS GOING TO CHANGEANYTHING?>> HOPEFULLY IT WILL WHEN PEOPLEHEAR THAT.BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, THEIRFAMILY AND FRIENDS WILL BETELLING THEM, DON'T GO HERE ANDTHEY'RE.WE'RE HOPING WE DON'T NEED TOUSE THE POLICE FORCE AND THERCMP, THAT WE COULD USE SOCIALPRESSURE.IN OTHER WORDS, YOUR FAMILY ANDFRIENDS WILL DO THAT.WHEN I WAS LOOKING AT THEFLIGHTS, ALL OF THE ASIAFLIGHTS, EVERYBODY HAS A MASKSON.WE'RE SAYING THE MASKS ARE NOTGOOD, NOT GOOD BUT, PERHAPS,NOW, WE REDISTRIBUTE MASKS INTHIS PARTICULAR SITUATION.NOT NORMAL FLIGHTS BUT MAYBETHIS WILL MAKE PEOPLE FEELBETTER AND LESS LIKELY TOTRANSMIT.WE KNOW IN THE EARLY STAGES OFTHE DISEASE, I WOULD LIE, TOO.IF I AM TRYING TO COME BACKHOME, I WOULD GET ON THATFLIGHT.BUT IF WE HAVE ON MASKS, WEWON'T BREATHE ON THE NEXTPERSON.IN THE EARLY DAYS, YOU CAN JUSTBE BREATHING OUT THE VIRUS ASYOU HAVE ENOUGH IN YOUR BODY.IF WE PUT ON MASKS, WE CANDECREASE IT, TELL EVERYBODY TOGET HOME, SIX FEET APART AND NOGATHERING AND THAT'S WHY THERE'SNO GATHERING.YOU CAN'T TELL A SICK PERSON ANYMORE.WE USED TO THINK IT'S SNEEZINGAND COUGHING, BUT WE HAVE NORMALPEOPLE BREATHING OUT AND IFYOU'RE CLOSE TO THEM, THAT'S HOWYOU'LL PICK UP THE VIRUS.SO PERHAPS NOW, MASKS ON PLANESWOULD BE ANOTHER STEP TO PUT INPLACE AND, PERHAPS, WE WHO PUTIT IN NOW THAN A WEEK FROM NOW.SO WE'RE ALWAYS PLAYING A LITTLEBIT OF CATCH-UP, BUT IT'SDIFFICULT BECAUSE YOU DON'T WANTTO SCARE PEOPLE OR HAVE TO PUTIN ALL OF THESE RULES.BUT MAYBE WE WHO PUT IN THOSERULES NOW.>> Rosemary: ASKING SOMEONE TOWEAR A MASK IS NOT A HEAVY LIFTOR A BIG REQUIREMENT IF YOU WANTTO GET ON A PLANE.DR. LIN, I'LL LEAVE IT THERE FORTODAY.THANK YOU AND ALWAYS GREAT TOHAVE YOU.AS WE WAIT FOR HEALTH OFFICIALSTO JOIN US FOR THE NOONBRIEFING, LET ME GIVE YOU MOREINFORMATION AROUND WHAT WE WEREDISCUSSING WITH CATHERINE ANDVASSY AND WHAT THE PRIMEMINISTER WAS ASKED ABOUT.WE CAN CONFIRM, INDEED, THATCANADA IS AWARE THAT THE UNITEDSTATES IS CONSIDERING MOVINGABOUT 1,000 TROOPS TO THEBORDER.THEY WOULD BE STATIONED ABOUT 2RAND THEY WOULD USE GENERAL KINDOF SENSORS TO LOOK OUT FORIRREGULAR BORDER CROSSERS.THE ORIGINAL BORDER CROSSERS ARESENT BACK TO THE U.S. AND THEREWAS A DAY LAST WEEK WHEN THEHIGHEST NUMBER OF BORDERCROSSERS WAS 17.IT'S UNCLEAR WHY YOU WOULD NEEDTO PATROL THE BORDER FOR SUCH ALOW NUMBER, BUT WE'LL TRY TO GETMORE ANSWERS TO THAT AT THISUPCOMING PRESS CONFERENCE.BEFORE WE DO THAT, THOUGH, IWANT TO GO BACK TO A CANADIANWHO WE HAD ON AT SOME POINT OVERTHE LAST NUMBER OF DAYS.I'M NOT SURE WHAT DAY IT WAS.IT WAS A CANADIAN STUCK IN PERUWHO STILL WANTS TO COME HOME.WE'VE BEEN SPEAKING REGULARLYWITH GREG BESTROSS, STUCK INHOSPITAL IN PERU.I KNOW THINGS HAVE ACTUALLYGOTTEN WORSE FOR YOU AND TELL MEWHAT THE SITUATION IS NOW.>> SO TODAY IS DAY 11 OF OURTIME SPENT ON LOCK-DOWN HERE, ATTHE HOTEL, AND YESTERDAY MORNINGWE RECEIVED INFORMATION THATSOMEBODY IN OUR HOSPITAL DIDTEST POSITIVE FOR COVID-19.AS PER DIRECTION OF THE MINISTRYOF HEALTH OF PERU, THE HOSPITALHAS INFORMED US WE WILL BELOCKED DOWN HERE FOR A DURATIONOF ONE TO THREE MONTHS.>> Rosemary: AND WHAT, IFANYTHING, HAVE YOU BEEN ABLE TOGET IN TERMS OF INFORMATION FROMTHE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT?>> SO THE DIFFICULTY IS, AS YOUKNOW, I THINK THERE IS,OBVIOUSLY, A VERY HIGH VOLUME OFCALLS, OF PEOPLE LOOKING TOREACH OUT TO US, PEOPLE LOOKINGOUT TO VARIOUS NUMBERS PROVIDED,BE IT LOCAL HERE IN PERU OR BACKHOME IN OTTAWA.AT THIS POINT, WE HAVE NOT HEARDBACK FROM ANYONE.I'VE ATTEMPTED TO LEAVE MULTIPLEMESSAGES AND I'VE ATTEMPTED TOGET AHOLD OF PEOPLE BECAUSETHREE DAYS AGO, WE WERE INFORMEDTHEY WERE BRINGING A DOCTOR INTOTHIS HOSPITAL TO TEST TWO PEOPLEAND PENDING THE RESULTS, WEWOULD BE LOCKED DOWN HERE FOR 28DAYS.AT THAT POINT IN TIME, WE WERETOLD THERE WAS NO WAY WE ALLOWEDTO LEAVE THE HOSPITAL IN THEMEANTIME.SO ONCE THE RESULTS CAME BACKPOSITIVE, THE MANAGER OF THEHOSPITAL HAD HELD A MEETING ANDINFORMED US OF THE CIRCUMSTANCESAND BASICALLY TOLD US WE WOULDBE LOCKED DOWN FOR ONE TO THREEMONTHS.I HAVE PREEMPTIVELY TRIED TO GETTHIS INFORMATION OUT TO OURGOVERNMENT, TO SEE WHAT KIND OFINTERVENTION COULD HAVE HAPPENEDPRIOR TO SOMETHING LIKE THISHAPPENING.MY FIANCE AND MYSELF, EVACUEEWE'VETAKEN THE PRECAUTION TO ISEOURSELVES AND I WISH THAT ACTIONHAD COME SWIFTER BECAUSE WE'REIN A SITUATION THAT I DON'T KNOWIF WE WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE ITHOME.>> Rosemary: THERE'S BEEN ONEFLIGHT OUT OF LIMA, PERU AND IDON'T KNOW IF YOU'VE HAD THOSEUPDATES AND IF YOU RESPOND.>> YEAH, I CHECKED ON TWITTERTHIS MORNING.I'VE BEEN UP EVERY MORNING 5:30,6:00 A.M. TO SEE IF THERE'S ANYINFORMATION MADE AVAILABLE.THIS MORNING, THE TWITTER PAGEDID INFORM THE MASSES THAT THEYARE GOING TO HAVE A FLIGHT FROMCUSCO TO LIMA TOMORROW.YESTERDAY, THEY HAD FILLED UPTICKETS FOR A FLIGHT DIRECTLYFROM LIMA THAT WILL BE LEAVINGLATER ON THIS AFTERNOON.MY FEAR IS THAT WE ARE LOCKEDDOWN THERE THIS HOTEL NOW AND WEDON'T BELIEVE WE'LL BE ABLE TOEVEN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THECHANCE OF GETTING ON THAT FLIGHTFROM CUSCO TO LIMA BECAUSE OFTHE FACT THAT THIS HAS BEENPLACED IN A MILITARY QUARANTINE.>> Rosemary: IF YOU LEFT WHATWOULD HAPPEN OR IF YOU TRIED TOLEAVE, WHAT WOULD HAPPEN?>> WE'VE BEEN TOLD IF WE DO NOTCOOPERATE WITH THE QUARANTINE,WE WILL GO TO JAIL FOR FIVE TOTEN YEARS HERE IN PERU.>> Rosemary: CAN I ASK YOU, IKNOW YOU WENT DOWN FOR A WEDDINGAND I KNOW PERU WASN'T ON THELIST OF COUNTRIES AT THE TIMEBUT I KNOW THE WORLD WAS SEEINGTHIS PANDEMIC SPREAD.DO YOU KNOW REGRET GOING THEREAND TAKING THIS -- I GUESS ITWAS A BIT OF A GAMBLE, RIGHT?DO YOU REGRET THAT?>> I MEAN, HINDSIGHT IS ALWAYS20/20 AND I LOOK BACK ACT THE AEDECISIONS AND WOULD WE DO THINGSDIFFERENTLY?ABSOLUTELY.WE WENT ON THE ADVICE OF OURGOVERNMENT WHICH TOLD US THEREWAS NO NEED TO WORRY, PERU WAS ASAFE PLACE AND AT THE TIME WEARRIVED, THERE WERE FOUR CASESIN PERU AND IT DIDN'T SEEM LIKETHE CURRENT SITUATION WE'RESTUCK IN.I DON'T THINK ANYONE COULD HAVEPREDICTED THE BORDERS CLOSING IN24 HOURS OR HAVE PREDICTED THEVERY QUICK REACTION THAT THEPERU GOVERNMENT PUT IN PLACE TOALLOW FOR FOREIGN CITIZENS TOGET HOME.ABSOLUTELY, WOULD WE DO THINGSDIFFERENTLY?ABSOLUTELY.BUT AT THIS POINT, WE'RE LEFT INTHIS SITUATION.WE'VE CHECKED EMAILS AND FILLEDOUT FORMS AND WAITED FORSOMETHING TO HAPPEN AND OURWORST FEAR HAS SEEM TO COME TOLIGHT NOW.>> Rosemary: I'LL HOPE THATGOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AREWATCHING AND LISTENING, BUT THEYMADE IT CLEAR THAT NOT EVERYONEWILL GET HOME.SO IF YOU'RE NOT GOING GET HOME,ARE YOU PREPARED AND HOW WILLYOU STAY THERE FOR A MONTH ORMORE?>> I MEAN, AT THIS POINT, ITDOESN'T SEEM LIKE WE HAVE VERYMUCH OF A CHOICE.I'VE SEEN THE TOLL THAT THISSITUATION HAS TAKEN ON OURMENTAL HEALTH.I'VE SEEN THE ANXIETY ATTACKSTHAT HAVE HAPPENED WITH MYFIANCE AND I'M GENERALLY WORRIEDFOR OUR MENTAL HEALTH AND NOWKNOWING THERE'S POSITIVE CASESIN THIS PLACE THAT WE'RESTAYING, I'M WORRIED FOR MYPHYSICAL HEALTH.I'VE DONE EVERYTHING I CAN DO TOMITIGATE ANY RISK.WE'VE ONLY LEFT OUR ROOM TO USETHE WASHROOM AND GRAB FOOD ANDCOME BACK.THERE'S BEEN NO SOCIALINTERACTION.THIS HAS NOT BEEN A VACATION.THIS IS US SITTING ON OUR PHONESFOR 12 TO 15 HOURS A DAY,WAITING FOR SOME RESPONSE,WAITING FOR SOME ACTION AND THECANADIAN GOVERNMENT TOLD US TOSTAY PUT, ABIDE BY LOCAL LAWENFORCEMENT.YOU CAN'T GO ON THE STREET SOMUCH AS TO GRAB SOMETHING FROMTHE SUPERMARKET WITHOUT HAVINGSOMEBODY FROM THE MILITARY ORPOLICE STOP YOU.YOU CAN IMAGINE WHAT THAT LOOKSLIKE WHEN YOU'RE LOOKING TOPOTENTIALLY CHANGE THE LODGINGTHAT YOU'RE STAYING AT.THERE HAS NOT BEEN THE OPTION TOCHECK OUT AND TO LEAVE UNLESS WEWERE LEAVING TO GO HOME.>> Rosemary: OK, GREG, THANKSAGAIN FOR TALKING TO US AND IKNOW THAT -- I'M SURE PEOPLEWERE LISTENING, PEOPLE INGOVERNMENT, AS WELL, AND LISTEN,I WISH YOU THE BEST AND THE VERYLEAST, GOOD HEALTH AS THIS GOESON AND PLEASE KEEP US POSTED ASTO WHAT'S HAPPENING.>> THANK YOU.>> Rosemary: AS WE STAND BY NOWTO BRING YOU THE NOON UPDATE,THE REGULAR NOON UPDATE FROMCABINET MINISTERS AND PUBLICHEALTH OFFICIALS, LET'S ME BRINGYOU UP TO DATE OUT OF THE LATESTNUMBERS OUT OF ONTARIO TODAY,NOW UP TO 858 CASES AND THAT'SUP 170 CASES, WHICH IS THELARGEST SINGLE DAY INCREASE INTHIS PROVINCE.(PLEASE STAND BY).AND THAT IS OUR DAILY COVERAGEOF THE PANDEMIC UPDATE.WE ARE GOING TO SIGN OFF FROMCBC TELEVISION AND YOU CANCONTINUE WATCHING, THOUGH, ON"CBC NEWS NETWORK" AND CBC.CA.I'M ROSEMARY BARTON HERE INOTTAWA.THANK YOU FOR WATCHING.>> -- THAT CANADA IN PARTICULARWOULD WANT TO SEE HAPPEN, BUT WE HAVE A LITTLE BIT MORE DETAILS ON THAT. >> Vassy: YEAH, WE DO HAVE A BIT MORE DETAIL ON THAT.THE PRIME MINISTER WAS ASKED VERY DIRECTLY, AS YOU MENTIONED, ROSY, WHETHER OR NOTTHOSE DISCUSSIONS ARE TAKING PLACE, AND HE CONFIRMED THAT, YES, THE DISCUSSIONS ARE TAKINGPLACE.WHILE YOU WERE INTERVIEWING OURFRIEND IN PERU, I WAS CALLING, TRYING TO FIND OUT WHETHER THISWOULD START.BECAUSE IF THE U.S. WANTS TO DOTHIS TO ADDRESS THE ISSUE THAT PEOPLE HAVE BEEN CROSSING IN BETWEEN CHECKPOINTS, THOSE NUMBERS DWINDLED PRIOR TO LAST WEEK WHEN AN AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE U.S. AND CANADA CAME INTO EFFECT THAT WOULD RESTRICT THE FLOW OF THOSE BORDER CROSSERS.SO INSTEAD OF BEING ABLE TO CROSS BETWEEN THOSE CHECKPOINTS, AND THEN BE PROCESSED THROUGH THE ASYLUM SYSTEM, THE PROCESS THAT CAME INTO EFFECT LAST FRIDAY, THEY WOULD BE DENIED AND WOULD BE SENT BACK TO THE UNITED STATES.THE REASONING BEHIND THESE DISCUSSIONS IS INTERESTING.I COULD NOT GET A CLEAR ANSWER YET ON SORT OF WHEN THEY BEGAN.HOW DOES THE AGREEMENT THAT WASARRIVED AT BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA FACTOR INTO THAT?WHAT I AM TOLD THAT DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER CHRYSTIA FREELAND HAS BEEN BRIEFED ON THE INCIDENT, AND WE SHOULD GETSOME SORT OF TIMING ORINSTIGATION ABOUT THIS. >> AS YOU SAY, THE NUMBERS, LAST WEEK, THEY WERE 47, 45 -- FRANKLY, THE CONCERN WOULD ACTUALLY BE FOR US RATHER THAN THE UNITED STATES, GIVEN THE WAY THEIR NUMBERS ON COVID-19 ARE SORT OF SPIRALLING OUT, PARTICULARLY AS YOU TALKED ABOUT IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK.IT SEEMS SORT OF CURIOUS THAT THE UNITED STATES WOULD WANT TOPUT PATROLS ALONG THE BORDER, GIVEN THAT THEY ARE IN A MUCH WORSE SITUATION.BUT I DON'T PRETEND TO UNDERSTAND THE LOGIC HERE IN ANY WAY.OKAY.I'LL GO TO CATHERINE CULLEN.FEEL FREE TO WEIGH-IN ON THAT.BUT IN PART, THE QUARANTINE EFFECT IS COMING THROUGH THE UNITED STATES, WHERE THE NUMBERS ARE MUCH HIGHER, AND THE VIRUS IS MUCH LESS CONTAINED. >> YEAH.I COULD WANT TO TOUCH ON THAT FOR A SECOND.THE OTHER QUESTION I THINK WE WOULD HAVE IS WHY PEOPLE LEAVING THE UNITED STATES WOULDBE SUCH A GREAT CONCERN FOR THEUNITED STATES IF THIS DECISION IS SEEN AS BEING PART OF THE RESPONSE OF COVID-19.CERTAINLY, PEOPLE CROSSING THE BORDER IN CANADA A BIG CONCERN,BUT WHY WOULD THE U.S. ADMINISTRATION BE WORRIED ABOUTPEOPLE WHO ARE OUTGOING?STILL GETTING A LOT OF INFORMATION ABOUT THE MAN IN QUARANTINE.YOU WILL BE FACED WITH THESE QUESTIONED IF YOU CROSS AT A LAND BORDER.IF YOU'RE DRIVING YOURSELF HOME, SO IF YOU'RE DRIVING ACROSS THE BORDER, IF YOU'RE DRIVING FROM THE AIRPORT, CERTAINLY, LEAVING THE AIRPORT,THE QUESTION IS, DO YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS OR NOT?BUT IF YOU'RE DRIVING YOURSELF ACROSS THE BORDER, ALL INDICATIONS THAT WE HAVE, IT'S FINE, BUT DON'T MAKE STOPS ALONG THE WAY.IF YOU'RE DRIVING HOME, DO YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS?SOMETHING WE NEED TO TOUCH ON, EARLIER, WHEN THE PRIME MINISTER WAS MAKING HIS REMARKSAND ADDRESSING CANADIANS, THEY'LL HAVE THE BENEFIT OF WITHIN 14 DAYS, THE PORTAL WILLBE UP AND RUNNING.I KNOW THERE'S A LOT OF PEOPLE FOLLOWING THIS VERY CLOSELY, WONDERING WHEN THEY'RE GOING TOHAVE MONEY IN THEIR POCKETS.>> CAN I JUMP IN FOR A QUICK SECOND?>> YES. >> Vassy: I JUST WANT TO SAY THAT AFTER THAT, THE PRIME MINISTER WAS MISSPEAKING.IT'S STILL GOING TO BE TEN DAYS. >> YEAH.HE'S WORKING LONG HOURS, SO IT'S -- A MATTER OF FOUR DAYS IS A BIG DEAL FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE, SO IMPORTANT TO KNOW THAT THE TARGET IS -- THE TARGET, ANY WAYS, IS STILL TEN DAYS AFTER YOU GET THAT PROCESS.THE PRIME MINISTER DID CONFIRM TODAY THAT KIRSTEN HILLMAN HAS BECOME CANADA'S NEW AMBASSADOR IN WASHINGTON, WHICH IS PROBABLY WELL TIMED, GIVEN THESE REPORTS THAT WE'RE HEARING COMING OUT.AMBASSADOR HILLMAN HAS BEEN A FACTOR IN THE NEGOTIATION OF THE NEW NAFTA BETWEEN CANADA, THE U.S., AND MEXICO AT A TIME WHEN, OBVIOUSLY, THE ONGOING ISSUES, WHETHER IT BE FROM AN ONGOING HEALTH PERSPECTIVE OR AN ECONOMIC PERSPECTIVE BETWEENTHE CANADA, THE U.S., AND MEXICO.I THINK I'M GOING TO PLAY A CLIP -- CAN I PLAY A CLIP?THE PRIME MINISTER IS GOING TO MAKE SURE THE BORDER DOESN'T THICKEN IN THE MIDST OF THIS.THERE WAS A LOT OF EFFORT TO SHUTDOWN NONESSENTIAL TRAVEL BETWEEN THE U.S. AND CANADA, BUT TO KEEP TRADE MOVING PRETTYFREELY.AND ANY CONCERN BY THE UNITED STATES TO MOVE TO THICKEN THAT BORDER WOULD BE WORRISOME FOR THE GOVERNMENT.LET ME PLAY THIS CLIP FOR YOU AWHILE AGO PRIME MINISTER PRIME MINISTER -- >> THAT IS THE PRIME MINISTER WEIGHING IN ON THAT.THE DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER HAS BEEN IN CHARGE OF THIS FILE SINCE, REALLY, THE FIRST ELECTION IN 2015.I'M NOT EVEN SURE IN WHAT WAY THIS WOULD HELP THIS MEASURE, THAT THE UNITED STATES IS AT LEAST CONTEMPLATING, VASSY.I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CAN WRAP YOUR HEAD AROUND THAT.I'M NOT SURE WHY IT WOULD BE NEEDED OR WHAT IT WOULD ACTUALLY DO. >> Vassy: YEAH, AND I GUESS TO TAKE THE QUESTION ONE STEP FURTHER, ROSY, THAT'S WHAT I WAS ASKING WHEN I WAS CALLING, IS THERE A REASON TO TAKE THAT BEYOND THIS?IS THE PRESIDENT INTERESTED IN REMILITARYIZING THE BORDER BEYOND THE PRIME MINISTER SAID SO?THERE HAVE BEEN POINTS AT WHICHTHE ISSUE OF BORDER CROSSERS HAS BEEN A BIG ONE, THERE'S BEEN THOUSANDS OF THEM TRANSVERSING.THERE'S A -- TRAVERSING.IT'S BEEN A BIG POLITICAL ISSUE, BUT AT THIS POINT, IT JUST DOESN'T ADD UP.IS THERE A DESIRE TO SEE THE REMILITARIZATION OF THE BORDER LIKE THEY HAVE ON THE SOUTHERN BORDER.THE U.S. PRESIDENT ALWAYS HAS SAID HE TREATS THE TWO BORDERS THE SAME.ON THE FACE OF IT RIGHT NOW, THE JUSTIFICATION PROVIDED BY THE WHITE HOUSE DOESN'T SEEM TOMATCH UP WITH THE REALITY, AND I KNOW THAT'S A STATEMENT THAT COULD MATCH UP IN OTHER INSTANCES, AS WELL, BUT DESPITETHAT, THE UNPREDICTABILITY OF THIS WHITE HOUSE HAS BEEN PRETTY STRONG.IT IS CURIOUS TO SEE, AND I THINK WHERE MINISTER FREELAND IS CONCERNED, I WOULD LIKE TO SEE WHERE THE DISCUSSIONS BEGAN.HAVE THE UNITED STATES FLOATED OTHER JUSTIFICATIONS BEYOND BORDER CROSSERS, AND DID SORT OF THE AGREEMENT THAT WAS REACHED LAST WEEK, DOES THAT INFLUENCE OR IMPACT THE DIRECTION OF THESE DISCUSSIONS AT ALL?I THINK THERE ARE SO MANY QUESTION MARKS RIGHT NOW ABOUT WHY THIS IS HAPPENING, AND ALL WE KNOW IS THAT IT IS.>> WE DO KNOW, TOO, THAT SOMETIMES PAST EXPERIENCES GET FLOATED OUT THERE BY THE UNITEDSTATES, AND THEN CANADA SPENDS DAYS AND DAYS AND DAYS TALKING THE U.S. OFFER THE LEDGE, AND THEN, THEY DIAL IT BACK.I IMAGINE THAT SEEMS TO BE THE CONVERSATION NOW, BUT AGAIN, WE'LL HEAR FROM THE DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER.>>> AGAIN, THE PRIME MINISTER WAS TALKING ABOUT RELIEF AVAILABLE FOR MANY CANADIANS.PORTAL IS NOT OPEN ON THE WEBSITE, BUT ESSENTIALLY, IT ALLOWS YOU ABOUT $2,000 PER MONTH IF YOUR EMPLOYMENT HAS BEEN AFFECTED IN ANY WAY BUT THE PANDEMIC IF YOU HAVE TO LOOK AFTER YOUR KIDS.SO LOTS OF DIFFERENT CRITERIA THAT HAS BEEN PUT OUT TO YOU.SO LOTS OF PEOPLE ARE OUT OF JOBS, HAVING TO WATCH THEIR KIDS DURING THIS TIME.JOINING US IS A RENTER IN THE CITY, AND YOU RECENTLY LOST ONEOF YOUR JOBS.TELL ME SOME MORE.>> WELL, ACTUALLY, THREE JOBS.ONE OF THE JOBS, I USED TO BE AN USHER AT MASSEY HALL, AND I WAS LAID OFF DUE TO RENOVATIONS, AND OBVIOUSLY, WITH ALL OF THIS GOING ON, WHO KNOWS WHEN THAT'S COMING BACK.MY MAIN EMPLOYMENT IS I WORK ASA YOGA INSTRUCTOR, MEDITATION INSTRUCTOR, AND WITH ALL THE SELF-ISOLATION, THAT WHOLE BUSINESS IS NOW AN ON-LINE BUSINESS.IT'S A LOT OF CHANGES FOR EVERYBODY, AND IT'S QUITE CHALLENGING, ACTUALLY, TO WORK WITH.MY THIRD JOB IS IN RETAIL, AND RIGHT NOW, WE WERE JUST SENT HOME, SO I'M NOT WORKING AT ALLRIGHT NOW. >> YOU'RE NORMALLY A PRETTY BUSY GUY, IT SOUNDS LIKE. >> YES. >> THE RENT PAYMENT IS COMING UP THE FIRST OF THE MONTH.I DON'T KNOW IF YOU'D WANT TO GIVE ME A SENSE OF WHAT YOU PAYOR IF YOU'RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO DO IT THIS MONTH. >> WELL, I'M NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO DO IT THIS MONTH BECAUSE I'M MAKING SURE THAT OUR GAS TANKS ARE FILLED, WE HAVE GROCERIES THAT WE NEED.FORTUNATELY, THE LANDLORD REACHED OUT TO US YESTERDAY TO FIND OUT IF EVERYTHING'S OKAY AND IF THERE'S A CHANCE THAT WEWOULD BE ABLE TO MAKE PAYMENT AND IF NOT, WHAT SORT OF ADJUSTMENTS WE CAN MAKE?SO WE'RE SORT OF WAITING TO FIND OUT WHAT THE PRIME MINISTER HAD TO SAY ABOUT ALL THE VARIOUS THINGS ALLOWABLE TOTHE COMMUNITY. >> SO THIS EMERGENCY BENEFIT, IT SOUNDS TO ME LIKE YOU PROBABLY COULD MAKE A CASE TO IT, GETTING ACCESS TO IT, SO IFYOU GET CLOSER TO APRIL, AND IT'S $2,000 A MONTH, HOW WOULD THAT HELP?WOULD THAT HELP YOU?>> I THINK IT WOULD, WITH THE RENT AND OTHER THINGS THAT ARE COMING THROUGH, BUT AGAIN, WE'RE GOING THROUGH THAT SCENARIO WHERE WE'RE SORT OF LIVING CHECK TO CHECKS AND WITHOUT ANY SENSE OF GOING BACKTO WORK, WE'RE BASICALLY RELIANT ON HOW THIS PLAYS OUT.I'M VERY THANKFUL FOR IT.I THINK IT'S A GREAT STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION, AND I DO CONSIDER MYSELF FORTUNATE, BUT I KNOW THERE'S LESS FORTUNATE PEOPLE, WHETHER THEY DON'T HAVEA HOME OR -- THERE'S SO MANY DIFFERENT THINGS AT PLAY. >> YESTERDAY, THE PRIME MINISTER ANNOUNCED A FREEZE ON RENT, A FREEZE ON EVICTIONS.BUT HE ALSO SAYSROUND THE HOUSUARE TRYING TO SELF-ISOLATE, ANDI IMAGINE THAT MAKES IT ALL A LITTLE MORE DIFFICULT. >> WELL, YOU KNOW, AS A WEIRD TWIST OF FATE, IT'S BEEN GREAT BECAUSE AS YOU'VE STATED, I'VE KEPT A PRETTY BUSY LIFESTYLE.THESE PAST COUPLE OF WEEKS HAVEBEEN GREAT BECAUSE I HAVE A LOTOF TIME TO SPEND WITH HIM.IT GIVES MY PARTNER LISA MORE TIME TO DO THE THINGS THAT SHE NEEDS TO DO INSTEAD OF BEING A CAREGIVER 24-7 BECAUSE WHEN I COME HOME, I AM SO TIRED.I AM LOOKING FOR THE SILVER LINING IN ALL OF THIS, AND HOPEFULLY, WE GET THROUGH THIS IN THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE. >> SO LET ME JUST LEAVE ON THIS.HOW STRESSED OUT OR WORRIED AREYOU ABOUT MONEY AND PAYING OR MAKING ALL YOUR BILLS AT THIS STAGE?>> WELL, THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION.AND I WILL SAY, I'M LUCKY.I HAVE A PRACTICE BASED IN YOGAAND MEDITATION, SO MY WHOLE THING IS HOW TO DEAL WITH STRESS.BUT THAT BEING SAID, IT'S ON MYMIND A LOT.I'M UP TILL THE WEE HOURS IN THE MORNING, FIGURING OUT HOW WE'RE GOING TO MAKE IT AND KEEPMY FAMILY SAFE.GOING TO THE GROCERY STORE, IT'S TOUGH, GOING THERE, AND COMING HOME, SANITIZING YOUR FOOD AND EVERYTHING.AND HAVING A TODDLER, YOU DON'TWANT TO TRANSMIT ANYTHING TO THIS LITTLE BOY WHO'S SO INNOCENT AND HAPPY ALL THE TIME. >> WELL, I WISH I HAD YOUR MEDIMEDI -- MEDITATIVE SKILLS AT A TIMELIKE THIS.GO AHEAD. >> YEAH.I WAS GOING TO SAY THERE'S BEENA LOT OF YOGA INSTRUCTORS IN THIS COUNTRY THAT HAVE BEEN SUPPORTING THE COMMUNITY ON-LINE.SO WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE IS VISIT YOUR YOGA STUDIO ON-LINE,SEE WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP.YOGA AND MEDITATION IS FREE FOREVERYBODY, LET'S USE THIS AS ANOPPORTUNITY TO DISCUSS WHAT IT CAN DO FOR US. >> WELL, I'M GLAD YOU'RE TAKINGEVERYTHING IN STRIDE AND THAT YOU'RE GETTING THE INFORMATION YOU NEED.IF YOU DON'T, REACH OUT TO US, AND WE'LL GET IT TO YOU. >> THANK YOU. >> TAKE CARE, AND HAVE A NICE DAY. >> NAMASTE. >> I KNOW THAT THE FINANCE MINISTER, FOR INSTANCE, HAS TALKED ABOUT HOW BANKS ARE SUPPOSED TO ALLOW YOU SOME FLEXIBILITY NOW IN MORTGAGE PAYMENTS.IF YOU'RE A RENTER, YOU'RE IN ADIFFERENT BOAT ENTIRELY, AND YOU'RE PRETTY MUCH DEPENDENT INBEING ABLE TO USE THE PAYMENTS THAT YOU GET FROM THE GOVERNMENT OR HAVING A FLEXIBLELANDLORD.>>> I'M SURE THAT'S A STORY THAT YOU'VE HEARD A FEW TIMES BEFORE, PEOPLE THAT ARE PROBABLY NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO PAY RENT IN ABOUT A WEEK'S TIME.TELL ME WHAT YOU'RE HEARING FROM PEOPLE?>> YEAH.WE'RE DEFINITELY HEARING FROM ALOT OF INVESTORS AND LANDLORDS.OF COURSE, EVERYONE'S MINDFUL OF WHAT'S GOING ON, SO BOTH LANDLORDS AND COMMERCIAL TENANTS, RESIDENTIAL TENANTS, THEY'RE ALL WORKING WITH THEM TO COME UP WITH A PLAN TO GET THROUGH THE NEXT FEW MONTHS. >> JOHN, I'M GOING TO LEAVE YOU -- I'M SURE WHAT YOU'RE SAYING IS SUPER INTERESTING, BUT OUR TECHNOLOGY IS FAILING US A LITTLE BIT.THIS IS THE PROBLEM WHEN WE'RE DOING SO MANY REMOTE INTERVIEWS.WE'LL COME BACK TO YOU BECAUSE IT'S SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND YOU.I'M GOING TO GO BACK TO MY GUESTS BECAUSE THEY'RE WAITING FOR THE PRESS CONFERENCE, ALONGWITH ME.>>> YOU HEAR ABOUT THE FINANCIAL HELP, THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE THAT NEED IT, AND NEED IT FAST. >> Vassy: GO AHEAD, CATHERINE. >> WELL THING THAT WE DIDN'T TOUCH ON AFTER PRIME MINISTER'SCONFERENCE WAS THE QUESTION HE WAS ASKED ABOUT CREDIT CARDS AND A CREDIT CARD GRACE PERIOD.WE'VE HEARD, GETTING THESE SMOKE SIGNALS FROM THE GOVERNMENT ABOUT THAT THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT CREDIT TO HELP NOT ONLY BUSINESSES BUT TO HELPINDIVIDUALS.THE GOVERNMENT SAID LISTEN, WE'VE PROPOSED THAT TO THE BANKS.WE WANT TO SEE THAT HAPPEN.YOU CAN IMAGINE THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO ARE WORRIED ABOUT PAYING RENT ARE INTERESTED. >> YEAH.COAXING THE BANK DOESN'T ALWAYSWORK -- OKAY.I'M GOING TO GO TO DEPUTY PRIMEMINISTER CHRYSTIA FREELAND WHO'S LEADING THE PRESS CONFERENCE.>> A DAILY REMINDER TO ALL CANADIANS.WE MUST ALL PRACTICE PHYSICAL DISTANCING.>>> TODAY, THE PRIME MINISTER ANNOUNCED KIRSTEN HILLMAN AS AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITED STATES.I HAVE WORKED WITH KIRSTEN SINCE 2015, AND I KNOW THAT AS WE BATTLE COVID-19 AND HAVE SO MUCH WORK TO DO WITH THE U.S. ON SO MANY DIFFERENT ISSUES, KIRSTEN IS EXACTLY THE RIGHT WOMAN TO ALMOSTDOUBLED IN NEWFOUNDLAND YESTERDAY.>> AS WELL, INCREASED LABORATORY CAPACITY, AND THE ABILITY OF LABORATORY HOSPITALSTO CONFIRM CASES CONTRIBUTED TOA SHARP SPIKE IN QUEBEC THIS WEEK.CASES ARE RELATED TO A RANGE OFEXPOSURES AND TRAVELERS RELATEDTO MARCH BREAK IN QUEBEC, TO A LARGE FUNERAL THAT ALMOST DOUBLED NEWFOUNDLAND'S CASE COUNT YESTERDAY.WE ARE NOW SEEING A SNAP SHOT OF COVID-19 IN CANADA, WHERE 6%OF ALL CASES REQUIRE HOSPITALIZATION, AND 2.6% OF ALL CASES ARE CRITICALLY ILL, AND 1% OF CASES HAVE BEEN FATAL.THE FACT THAT CANADA'S FATALITYRATE IS AT 1% INDICATES THAT THE HEALTH CARE SYSTEM IS NOT CURRENTLY OVERWHELMED, BUT THESE FATALITIES COULD BE REDUCED FURTHER BY PREVENTING ILLNESS IN OUR MOST VULNERABLE POPULATIONS.MANY OF THE DEATHS IN CANADA HAVE BEEN LINKED TO OUTBREAKS AND CLUSTERS IN OUR PROVINCES.THE SERIOUSNESS OF THIS DISEASECANNOT BE OVERSTATED.OLDER ADULTS AND ADULTS WITH SERIOUS MEDICAL CONDITIONS ARE AT RISK.BUT NOT ONLY CAN PEOPLE OF ALL AGES GET CAN HE VEERLY ILL, BUT -- SEVERELY ILL, BUT IT WILL IMPACT ALL.ANYONE AFFECTED BY THE SERIOUSNESS OF COVID-19 AND THENEED FOR PHYSICAL DISTANCING SHOULD LOOK TO COUNTRIES LIKE ITALY AND THE FACT OF A HEALTH SYSTEM SEVERELY OVERWHELMED.SO BY KEEPING A DISTANCE BETWEEN YOURSELVES, YOU ARE HELPING EVERYONE.>> OKAY.NOW WE'RE GOING TO HEAR FROM OUR MINISTER OF EMPLOYMENT, DISABILITY, AND WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT. >> BEFORE I BEGIN, I'D LIKE TO TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO THANK THE A.L.S. AND L.S.Q. SIGN LANGUAGE INTERPRETERS, WHO HAVEBEEN WORKING HARD TO PROVIDE SIMULTANEOUS TRANSLATIONS DURING THESE PRESS CONFERENCES,SO ALL CANADIANS CAN STAY INFORMED.THANK YOU.YOUR WORK IS HARD, AND WE APPRECIATE IT.OVER THE PAST FEW WEEKS, WE'VE ALL BEEN ASKED TO WORK TOGETHERTO STOP THE SPREAD OF COVID-19.I KNOW THIS HAS COME WITH A LOTOF UNCERTAINTY, ANXIETY, AND CONCERN, ESPECIALLY THE PART ABOUT NOT BEING ABLE TO PAY YOUR CHECK. >> THE LEGISLATION ENACTED YESTERDAY IS THE FIRST STEP TO HELP WITH SOME OF THE STRESS BYIMPLEMENTING SPECIAL MEASURES TO SUPPORT CANADIANS WHO ARE STRUGGLING BECAUSE OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC. >> SO EFFECT HELP, WE'VE INTRODUCED THE EMERGENCY RESPONSE BENEFIT.FROM THE VERY BEGINNING, WE WANTED TO HELP ALL WORKERS, WHETHER OR NOT THEY WERE ELIGIBILITY FOR E.I.WE TOOK ACTIVE ACTION IN THE E.I. BY WAIVING THE SIX-WEEK BENEFITS, AND THEN, AN UNPRECEDENTED WAVE OF E.I. APPLICATIONS CAME ROLLING IN, AND THEN, IT BECAME CLEAR THEREWAS UNCERTAINTY AND CONFUSION AROUND WHICH BENEFIT TO APPLY FOR.AT THAT POINT, IT BECAME OBVIOUS THAT WE HAD TO SIMPLIFYTHE EXISTING BENEFITS BY MERGING THEM INTO A SINGLE TEMPORARY EMERGENCY BENEFIT FOREVERYONE.>> OUR E.I. SYSTEM WAS NOT DESIGNED TO ADDRESS A GLOBAL PANDEMIC SITUATION.IT DOESN'T HELP ALL WORKERS, AND IT DOESN'T CONTEMPLATE THE MYRIAD OF SITUATIONS THAT WORKERS ARE FACING DURING THIS CRISIS WITH ITS SIGNIFICANT ECONOMIC IMPACTS.IT'S CLEAR WE NEED AN EMERGENCYIMPACT OUTSIDE OF EXISTING GOVERNMENT PROGRAMME PARAMETRESTO RESPOND TO THIS EMERGENCY SITUATION.THAT'S WHAT THE CANADA EMERGENCY RESPONSE BENEFIT IS.RETROACTIVE TO MARCH 15, CANADIAN WORKERS WILL HAVE ACCESS TO THE CERB TO A MAXIMUMOF 16 WEEKS IF THEIR INCOME LOSS IS RELATED TO COVID-19.IT'S A STREAM LINED BENEFIT WITH A STRAIGHTFORWARD ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA.THE PORTAL FOR ACCESSING THE EMERGENCY RESPONSE BENEFIT WILLBE OPEN IN EARLY APRIL, AND UNTIL THEN, CANADIANS CAN CONTINUE TO APPLY FOR E.I. ON-LINE AND WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE ENROLLED IN THE CERB.WE'RE TRULY DOING EVERYTHING INOUR POWER TO HELP CANADIANS ANDPROTECT THEM AGAINST THIS VIRUSAND ITS ECONOMIC IMPACTS.WE'LL CONTINUE TO WORK TOGETHERTO FIND WAYS TO SUPPORT CANADIAN WORKERS AND THEIR FAMILIES.MERCI.THANK YOU. >> OKAY.THANK YOU, CARLA. >>> AND NOW, I GIVE THE FLOOR TO THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE TREASURY BOARD. >> THANK YOU, CHRYSTIA.THE MAIN MESSAGE TODAY IS INFORMATION AND SUPPORT, AND BEING CLEAR ON THE INSTRUCTIONSTHAT WE ALL MUST FOLLOW IN SOCIAL DISTANCING, BUT ALSO THECLEAR DIRECTIVES ISSUED YESTERDAY WHEN THE QUARANTINE ACT WAS INVOKED TO ENSURE THAT EVERYONE WHO COMES BACK TO CANADA SELF-ISOLATES FOR AT LEAST 15 DAYS UNDER PROPER CONDITIONS, OTHERWISE, THE QUARANTINE WILL NOT COME INTO EFFECT.WE HAVE CREATED THE CANADA EMERGENCY RESPONSE BENEFIT.IT IS MORE SIMPLE, IT'LL BE QUICKER.IT'S MORE INCLUSIVE, AS WELL.IT IS GENEROUS, IT IS $2,000 A MONTH FOR THE NEXT FOUR MONTHS,AND THAT'S BECAUSE WE WANT TO AVOID HAVING A BREAK IN THE EMPLOYMENT LENGTH BETWEEN EMPLOYERS AND EMPLOYEES.NOW WE WANT TO ENSURE THAT WHENTHE ECONOMY COMES BACK ON-LINE,PEOPLE WILL BE ABLE TO PAY THEIR WORKERS QUICKLY.>> THANK YOU.AND OF COURSE, WITH US ALSO IS PATTY HAJDU, OUR DEPUTY OF PUBLIC HEALTH, AND OUR MINISTER, PLEASE. >> SO WE ARE GOING TO TAKE THREE QUESTIONS ON THE PHONE.>> THANK YOU.MERCI.PLEASE PRESS STAR-ONE ON THE PHONE IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION.THERE WILL BE A BRIEF MOMENT WHILE THE PARTICIPANTS REGISTER.THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE.[SPEAKING FRENCH LANGUAGE]>> OUR FIRST QUESTION IS FROM MIA ROBSON OF THE CANADIAN PRESS.>> HI.I'M WONDERING IF YOU CAN TALK ABOUT A LITTLE BIT ABOUT HOW THE QUARANTINE FOR PEOPLE COMING BACK TO CANADA WOULD BE ENFORCED, THE MEASURES THAT YOU'LL ACTUALLY TAKE AND HOW THAT WILL BE ENFORCED. >> OKAY.PATTY CAN ANSWER THAT. >> WELL, FIRST, I'LL TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO THANK OUR COLLEAGUES AT THE CANADIAN BORDER SERVICES TO PUT IN PLACETHE MEASURES THAT WILL HELP US ENFORCE THE QUARANTINE ACT MEASURE THAT WE ANNOUNCED YESTERDAY.ULTIMATELY, WHAT WE ARE DOING IS REMINDING THESE CANADIANS --AND THESE ARE CANADIANS IN THE MINORITY, I WILL SAY WHO ARE NOT TAKING THE NEED TO SELF-ISOLATE SERIOUSLY.>> SO I'M JUST GOING TO TAKE PEOPLE BACK A LITTLE BIT IN IMAGINING WHEN YOU ENTER THE INTERNATIONAL BORDER INTO CANADA.SO ANY SYMPTOMATIC PEOPLE WILL BE IMMEDIATELY GIVEN AN ORDER TO ISOLATE.IF THEY CAN GET IN A PRIVATE VEHICLE TO GET HOME, WE'LL CHECK ON THEM.IF THEY CAN'T GET HOME, WE'RE, OF COURSE, PUTTING THEM IN A FEDERAL QUARANTINE PLACE.WE'RE ALSO TAKING THEM TO A RISK ASSESSMENT, AS WELL.SO IF YOU'RE LIVING WITH SOMEONE WHO HAPPENS TO BE OLDEROR WITH UNDERLYING MEDICAL CONDITIONS, THAT, OF COURSE, WILL BE TAKING THAT INTO ACCOUNT SO WE CAN CONSIDER THEMSEPARATELY.WE HAVE CONTACT WITH THEM, WE FOLLOW THEM SO THAT WE HAVE A SEAMLESS PROCESS WITH LOCAL HEALTH AUTHORITIES.FOR ASYMPTOMATIC TRAVELERS, THEY CAN MOVE ON AS FAST AS POSSIBLE TO THEIR HOME, ESSENTIALLY, THEIR PLACE OF RESIDENCE IN CANADA.THEY ARE GIVEN THE ORDER WHICH SPECIFIES THE KIND OF CONSEQUENCES AND THE PENALTIES THAT YOU MAY ENCOUNTER IF YOU DID NOT FOLLOW THE ORDER.THEY ARE ALLOWED TO GO HOME.THEY'RE ASYMPTOMATIC, AND THEY'RE ASKED TO SELF-ISOLATE, AND WE'RE DOING RANDOM CHECKS AS THAT IS FELT TO BE THE MOST REASONABLE APPROACH.WE'LL ALSO WORK WITH PUBLIC HEALTH.THEY HAVE ORDERS IN PLACE, AS WELL, FOR SELF-ISOLATION.SO THIS IS A COORDINATED EFFORT.SO IF, FOR WHATEVER REASON, SOMEONE IS NOT COMPLYING, WE CAN THEN COLLABORATE WITH LOCALHEALTH AUTHORITIES IN THE FOLLOW-UP PROCESS. >> FOLLOW UP?>> Caller: YEAH, JUST TO FOLLOWUP ON THAT.DO YOU HAVE ANY NUMBER OF CANADIANS THAT ARE IN THE -- I DON'T WANT TO CALL IT THE FORCED QUARANTINE, BUT IN THE FEDERAL QUARANTINE PLACES?HOW MANY CANADIANS ARE BEING HELD IN THE FEDERAL QUARANTINE PLACES?AND ARE THERE ANYTHING PEOPLE CAN HELP WITH SO CALLED SNITCH LINES, CALLING POLICE?WHAT CAN PEOPLE DO IN TERMS OF OTHER PEOPLE NOT FOLLOWING THE ORDER?>> IN TERMS OF PEOPLE AT THE FEDERAL FACILITY, THESE ARE VERY DYNAMIC NUMBERS.THEY'RE VERY FEW AT THIS POINT.FOR EXAMPLE, WE DO HAVE SOMEONEWHO IS SICK IN THE VANCOUVER FACILITY.WE HAD AN EXAMPLE OF A COUPLE THAT WENT ACROSS THE LAND BORDER WITH QUEBEC.THEY WERE NOT ILL, BUT THEY WERE LIVING WITH SOMEONE THAT WAS IMMUNOCOMPROMISED.WE HAD A TRUCK DRIVER, AS WELL,SO THAT WAS SOMEONE WHO WAS IMMEDIATELY PUT INTO ISOLATION.THESE ARE PEOPLE THAT MAINTAIN OUR ESSENTIAL SERVICES, BUT IF THEY ARE SICK, WE ARE MAKING SURE THAT THEY DO NOT IMPACT THE HEALTH OF CANADIANS.THEY ARE RIGHT NOW VERY, VERY FEW PEOPLE, AND SOME OF THESE MIGHT ALREADY BE -- YOU KNOW, ONCE WE ARE SURE THAT WE CAN SAFELY MOVE ONTO THEIR HOMES WITH THE HELP OF PUBLIC HEALTH,WE WILL THEN DEPART, SO IT'S A VERY DYNAMIC NUMBER.AND YOUR SECOND QUESTION, SO I THINK OVERALL, THOUGH, I HAVE TO SAY THAT CANADIANS ARE VERY COLLABORATIVE.THIS QUARANTINE ACT IS TO LAYERON AN ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENT OFSELF-ISOLATION.THAT IS THE PURPOSE.OF COURSE, IF THERE ARE VIOLATIONS, WE'RE WORKING WITH LOCAL PUBLIC HEALTH AUTHORITIES.WE'RE WORKING VERY CLOSELY WITHTHEM TO FIND ANYONE WHO MAY BE VIOLATING THE ORDER.WITH THOSE RANDOM CHECKS, WE ARE, OF COURSE, FROM OUR END, CHECKING ON PEOPLE WHO MIGHT ALSO NOT BE FOLLOWING THE ORDER.BUT AS THE MINISTER SAID, WE ARE RAPIDLY SETTING ALL OF THIS.>> THANK YOU, MINISTER.>> Caller: YES, HELLO.I WOULD LIKE TO FOLLOW UP ON THOSE RANDOM CHECKS.HOW WILL THEY BE CONDUCTED?WILL THEY BE DONE IN PERSON OR OVER THE PHONE AND IF THEY'RE DONE OVER THE PHONE, HOW WILL IT BE POSSIBLE TO KNOW IF THEY'RE COMPLYING OR NOT?>> WE ARE GOING TO GET THE NECESSARY INFORMATION ABOUT TRAVELERS ARRIVING IN CANADA, IT'S NOT EVERYONE, BUT IT'S A SECTION OF PEOPLE, AND WE WILL WORK CLOSELY WITH DEPARTMENT OFHEALTH.THERE'S A RANGE OF OPTIONS.SOMEONE MIGHT GO TO THE PERSON'S HOME, BUT THERE ARE OTHER OPTIONS, AS WELL, THAT WE'RE EXAMINING BECAUSE THE CONTEXT IS DIFFERENT, DEPENDINGON THE PROVINCE OR TERRITORY. >> Caller: I JUST WANT TO KNOW,FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE COMING BACK TO CANADA, THEY DON'T NECESSARILY LIVE IN THE SAME CITY WHERE THEIR PLANE HAS LANDED.I THINK THERE WERE TALKS ABOUT ORGANIZING TRANSPORTATION FOR PEOPLE WHO DON'T HAVE THEIR CARS OR THEIR OWN PERSONAL CARSAT THE AIRPORT.HAVE YOU SORTED THAT OUT?HOW IS IT GOING TO WORK, AND WHERE CAN PEOPLE CALL TO GET THAT SERVICE?>> THANK YOU FOR THE QUESTION.THE TRANSPORTATION IS FOR SYMPTOMATIC PASSENGERS SO THEY'RE NOT IN CONTACT WITH OTHER PASSENGERS IN CANADIAN TRANSIT THAT WOULD OBVIOUSLY BEAT RISK BECAUSE OF THEIR POTENTIAL INFECTION WITH COVID-19.AS THE DOCTOR HAS ILLUSTRATED, ASYMPTOMATIC PASSENGERS ARE GIVEN PUBLIC HEALTH ADVICE, INCLUDING THE ORDER TO QUARANTINE WHEN THEY GET TO THEIR FINAL DESTINATION, ALONG WITH A MASK, AND TOLD TO DON THE MASK IF THEY SHOULD GET ILLAT ANY POINT ALONG THEIR TRAVEL. >> BUT IF THEY DON'T ARRIVE IN THEIR HOME CITY, HOW DO THEY DOTHAT?>> THE SAME WAY THAT ALL OTHER PASSENGERS ARE TRAVELING.THEY WOULD GET ONTO THEIR NEXT FLIGHT OR WHATEVER FORM OF TRANSPORTATION IS TAKING THEM TO THEIR FINAL DESTINATION, ANDTHIS WOULD ONLY BE ALLOWED IF THEY ARE ASYMPTOMATIC.IF THEY ARE SYMPTOMATIC, THEY WOULD BE TRANSPORTED BY ONE OF OUR OFFICIALS AND PLACED INTO QUARANTINE UNTIL IT WAS DETERMINED THAT THEY ARE SAFE TO TRAVEL ONWARDS. >> JUST TO BE CLEAR, THE MEDICAL ASSOCIATION HAS CONTRACTED TRANSPORTS, SO DEPENDING ON THE SITUATION, THEILL PASSENGERS MAY EITHER BE TRANSFERRED TO A FEDERAL QUARANTINE SITE SO IF IT'S WITHIN A MEDICAL TRANSPORTATIONDISTANCE, WE WOULD ACTUALLY DRIVE THEM ALL THE WAY HOME.>> YES.THE NEXT QUESTION ON THE PHONE.>> THE NEXT QUESTION IS FROM ALEX FROM THE TORONTO STAR.PLEASE GO AHEAD.>> Caller: HI.THANKS FOR TAKING MY QUESTION.I THINK THIS ONE MIGHT BE FOR THE DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER.JUST WHAT -- CAN YOU TELL US ANYTHING MORE ABOUT THE DISCUSSIONS WITH THE AMERICANS?THERE'S THIS NEWS REPORT THAT THEY'RE CONTEMPLATING PUTTING TROOPS AT THE BORDER.JUST WHAT EXACTLY THEY'RE THINKING ABOUT DOING, AND WHAT OUR RESPONSE IS TO THAT?>> THANK YOU FOR THE QUESTION, ALEX, AND THE PRIME MINISTER DID ADDRESS THAT IN HIS DALY PRESS EVENT THIS MORNING.I THINK FOR DETAILS OF WHAT THEAMERICANS ARE CONSIDERING, THE PEOPLE TO ASK ARE THE AMERICANS, AND THE UNITED STATES, OF COURSE, IS A SOVEREIGN COUNTRY, WHICH DOES, AS IT OUGHT TO DO, MAKE ITS OWNINDEPENDENT DECISIONS ABOUT WHAT TO DO WITHIN ITS OWN BORDERS.HAVING SAID THAT, WE -- LET ME SHARE WITH CANADIANS WHAT CANADIAN POLITICIANS, MINISTERS, HAVE BEEN EXPRESSINGVERY FORCEFULLY, WHAT OUR DIPLOMATES, INCLUDING OUR NEWLY-APPOINTED AMBASSADOR, AMBASSADOR HILLMAN, HAS BEEN SAYING ABOUT THIS PROPOSAL.AND THAT IS CANADIANS AND AMERICANS ARE RIGHTLY PROUD TO SHARE THE WORLD'S LONGEST UNMILITARYIZED BORDER.THIS IS AN IMPORTANT EXAMPLE OFHOW OUR COUNTRIES VERY EFFECTIVELY WORK TOGETHER.IT IS ALSO THE CASE THAT CANADAAND THE UNITED STATES ARE VERY CLOSE MILITARY ALLIES.WE ARE PARTNERS IN NORAD, DEFENDING OUR CONTINENT, AND WEARE PARTNERS IN NATO.WE HAVE BEEN WORKING VERY EFFECTIVELY TOGETHER IN OUR ECONOMIC RELATIONSHIP.WITNESSED THE RATIFICATION, EVEN IN THESE DIFFICULT TIMES, IN THE NEW NAFTA.AND LAST WEEK, WE MANAGED, WORKING TOGETHER, A VERY GOOD RECIPROCAL AND COOPERATIVE AGREEMENT ON RESTRICTING NONESSENTIAL TRAVEL ON OUR BORDER, ACROSS OUR SHARED BORDER.IN VIEW OF ALL OF THESE CONNECTIONS, AND THE IMPORTANCEOF THE RELATIONSHIP, CANADA IS STRONGLY OPPOSED TO THIS U.S. PROPOSAL, AND WE HAVE MADE THATOPPOSITION VERY, VERY CLEAR FORAMERICAN COUNTERPARTS, AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO.AT THE END OF THE DAY, EVERY COUNTRY TAKES ITS OWN DECISIONS, BUT OURS IS AN IMPORTANT AND VALUED PARTNERSHIP, AND WE ARE MAKING VERY CLEAR CANADA'S POSITION.THANKS.>> ALEX, ONE FOLLOW UP?>> Caller: YEAH, THANKS FOR THAT.AND JUST EXPANDING ON THAT, WE'RE SEEING AROUND THE WORLD, TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS, BORDER SHUTDOWNS, YOU KNOW, COUNTRIES SORT OF SCRAMBLING FOR SUPPLIES.ARE YOU WORRIED THAT THE PANDEMIC WILL SORT OF PROMPT A TURN INWARDS?WILL IT INCREASE CONSUMER PROTECTIONISM OR CAUSE COUNTRIES TO TURN AWAY FROM INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION?>> ABSOLUTELY.WHEN IT COMES TO PROTECTIONISM,I THINK WE ARE ALREADY SEEING THAT.I THINK WE HAVE TO BE THOUGHTFUL ABOUT THE REACTION.ON ONE HAND, EVERY COUNTRY IN THIS TIME WHEN WE ARE FACING REAL DANGER TO THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF OUR CITIZENS, EVERY COUNTRY NEEDS TO FOCUS ON THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF ITS OWN PEOPLE, AND THAT IS WHAT OUR GOVERNMENT IS DOING.AND WE DO THAT WITH NO APOLOGY,IN FACT, WITH REAL CONVICTION.HAVING SAID THAT -- AND I THINKDR. TAM HAS BEEN VERY EFFECTIVEAT COMMUNICATING THIS -- AT THEEND OF THE DAY, THE REALITY OF A GLOBAL PANDEMIC IS THAT IT ISGLOBAL.AND THE LONG-TERM LESSON THAT WE SHOULD BE LEARNING FROM ALL OF THIS IS HOW IMPORTANT INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION IS.NOW, THE LESSON THAT WE ARE BEING TAUGHT IS THAT NONE OF USIN THE WORLD CAN BE SAFE AND HEALTHY UNLESS WE ARE WORKING HARD TO BE SURE THAT EVERYONE IN THE WORLD IS SAFE AND HEALTHY, AND THAT'S WHY INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION IS REALLY IMPORTANT.CANADA HAS BEEN A COUNTRY THAT,FROM THE INSEPT OF THE RULES BASED INTERNATIONAL ORDER -- INCEPT OF THE RULES-BASED INTERNATIONAL ORDER HAS BEEN ANEXAMPLE FOR ALL OF US.THE PRIME MINISTER TODAY PARTICIPATED IN A CALL OF G-20 LEADERS, AND THAT'S AN EXAMPLE OF HIS LEADERSHIP IN THE INTERNATIONAL RESPONSE.THANK YOU.>> THANK YOU, MINISTER.WE'LL TURN TO THE PHONE FOR THREE QUESTIONS, STARTING WITH MIKE FROM GLOBAL.>> Caller: THANK YOU.MINISTER HAJDU, THE PRIME MINISTER SAID MILLIONS OF P.P.E. IS COMING INTO CANADA.WHERE IS IT COMING FROM?>> WELL, THANK YOU FOR THE QUESTION.I'LL TURN TO DR. TAM FOR SOME DETAILED LEVEL DISCUSSION.SOME OF IT IS COMING FROM CHINA, SOME OF IT IS COMING FROM OTHER SOURCES.AS YOU KNOW, WE HAVE DOMESTIC SOURCES THAT WE'RE TRYING TO PROCURE FROM, AS WELL.AND I THINK TO THE DEPUTY PRIMEMINISTER'S LAST COMMENT, I REFLECT ON THE FACT THAT THIS IS A GLOBAL PANDEMIC, AND I THINK ANOTHER THING THAT I FOCUS ON IS THE FRAGILITY OF OUR DELIVERY SYSTEMS.AND WHEN ONE COUNTRY IS THE ONLY COUNTRY THAT CAN SUPPLY THOSE GOODS, IT PUTS OUR SYSTEMAND SITUATION SOMEWHAT AT A DISADVANTAGE.I AM EXTREMELY PROUD OF THE COLLABORATIVE EFFORTS THAT ARE HAPPENING ACROSS GOVERNMENT ANDWITH PROVINCES AND TERRITORIES TO ENSURE THAT WE CAN PROCURE WHAT WE NEED.WE'RE MAKING PROGRESS ON THE FILE.IS IT PERFECT?NO, BUT CERTAINLY, I THINK WE'RE GETTING A LOT FURTHER IN THE LAST WEEK OR TWO THAN WE HAVE BEEN IN A WHILE.>> Caller: SO THIS IS ON TOP OFTHE -- CHINA SENT US LAST MONTHABOUT 16 TONNES OF EQUIPMENT, RIGHT?THAT'S WHAT I HAVE HERE.IS THIS ON TOP OF THAT, OR IS THAT NUMBER TOTALLY CRAZY?>> I'M SORRY.WHAT WAS THE QUESTION AT THE BEGINNING?>> Caller: CAN YOU CONFIRM THATCHINA IS SENDING BACK MORE EQUIPMENT THAN THE 16 TONNES LAST MONTH?>> I'LL HAVE TO GET BACK TO YOUON THAT UNLESS DR. TAM HAS DETAILS.WEL HAVE TO GET BACK TO YOU ON THAT.BUT I WILL SAY I'M PROUD HOW HARD MANUFACTURERS ACROSS THE GLOBE ARE WORKING TO INCREASE THEIR PRODUCTION.I, TOO, HAVE REGULAR CALLS WITHMY COUNTERPARTS, G20 COUNTERPARTS, AND THE QUESTION OF PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT AND OTHER SUPPLIES WAS OF PARAMOUNT IMPORTANCE.I WILL SAY THE EFFORTS THAT AREHAPPENING ON DOMESTIC PRODUCTION AND OTHER CONTINENTSIS VERY INSPIRING.>> JULIA, CBC.>> YOU SAY YOU DON'T LIKE WHAT THE PROPOSAL IS FOR THE U.S.CAN YOU JUST TELL US WHAT THE PROPOSAL IS, AND WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT. >> AGAIN, THE SPECIFICS OF WHATTHE U.S. DECIDES TO DO WITHIN ITS OWN BORDERS IS TRADITIONALLY A QUESTION THAT IS RIGHTLY POSED TO AMERICAN LEADERS, AND I THINK THAT IT WOULD BE INAPPROPRIATE FOR ANYONE OTHER THAN U.S. LEADERS TO COMMENT ON WHAT THEY ARE CONTEMPLATING.IN TERMS OF WHAT WE'RE DOING ABOUT IT, WE ARE VERY DIRECTLY AND VERY FORCEFULLY EXPRESSING THE VIEW I SHARED A MOMENT AGO,WHICH IS THAT IN CANADA'S VIEW,THIS IS AN ENTIRELY UNNECESSARYSTEP WHICH WE WOULD VIEW AS DAMAGING TO OUR RELATIONSHIP.I WOULD LIKE TO THANK MINISTER BLAIR FOR SPEAKING TO HIS COUNTERPART ABOUT THIS, AND MINISTER SAJJAN FOR SPEAKING TOHIS COUNTERPART ABOUT THIS.HAVING SAID THAT, THIS IS OUR NEIGHBOUR HAVING THE RIGHT TO DO WHAT THEY CHOOSE TO DO ON THEIR BORDER.I WILL SAY THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WE'VE BEEN IN VERY CLOSE CONTACT WITH OUR AMERICAN COUNTERPARTS WITH AT THE LOCAL LEVEL, AT THE GOVERNMENT LEVEL THAT CANADA IS TAKING WHEN IT COMES TO PUBLIC HEALTH HERE IN CANADA.THANKS. >> >> Reporter: OKAY.I'M NOT SURE IF IT'S A QUESTIONFOR PATTY HAJDU OR THERESA TAM,BUT WE'RE HEARING ATTENDANTS ARE GETTING SICK ON FLIGHTS BECAUSE THEY'RE PASSENGERS THATTHEY HAVE TO DEAL WITH.IS THERE ANYTHING BEING DONE TOSTOP THIS?>> I'LL ANSWER THIS, AND THEN, I'LL TURN TO DR. TAM.WE'VE TURNED TO INDUSTRY SECTORGUIDELINES TO CARE FOR EMPLOYEES IN THAT SECTOR THAT CAN HELP THEM -- PREVENT THEM FROM ACQUIRING COVID-19.WE KNOW THAT THERE ARE A VARIETY OF FRONTLINE WORKERS, INCLUDING RETAIL WORKERS THAT ARE EXPERIENCING A HIGHER DEGREE OF CONTACT WITH WORKERS.WE CONTINUE TO REFINE THAT SECTOR AND GUIDANCE AS WE UNCOVER VARIOUS SECTORS OF THEIR WORK, AND I WILL TURN TO DR. TAM FOR MORE COMMENT ON THAT. >> SO WE PROVIDE GUIDANCE TO DIFFERENT SECTORS AND HAVE BEENENGAGING WITH AIRLINES ON AN ONGOING BASIS.SOME OF THE CURRENT MEASURES BEING PUT IN PLACE, FOR EXAMPLE, ENSURING THOSE SICK PASSENGERS GET ON THE PLANE, OFCOURSE ALSO PROTECTS THE CREW THAT'S ON THE PLANE AND ENSURING THE PEOPLE HAVE THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT -- FOR EXAMPLE,PUTTING A MASK ON SOMEONE THAT'S SICK AND TRYING TO SEPARATE THEM.INCREASING ENVIRONMENTAL CLEANING AND PROCEDURES LIKE THAT, PROVIDING ADVICE TO -- AND ENSURE THAT THE AIRCRAFT IS -- IS CLEANED AND SAFE, AS WELL.SO OF COURSE ANYONE ARRIVING INCANADA WHO IS ILL WILL BE TAKENCARE OF, AS WITH OTHER TRAVELERS, AS WELL.BUT I THINK I UNDERSTAND THE CONCERNS, AND IT'S REALLY PUBLIC HEALTH GUIDANCE THAT'S BEEN PROVIDED.>> OKAY.ONE LAST QUESTION FOR THE ROOM BEFORE WE GO BACK TO THE PHONE.RACHEL FROM C.T.V. >> OKAY.MY FIRST QUESTION IS FOR MINISTER HAJDU AND DR. TAM.FIVE UNIVERSITIES IN CHINA HAVEDONE A STUDY THAT A TWO-WEEK QUARANTINE MAY NOT BE ENOUGH, AND PEOPLE MAY START SHOWING SYMPTOMS AFTER THE TWO WEEKS.WOULD CANADA CONSIDER INCREASING THIS PERIOD, AND IS THERE ANY DISCUSSION ABOUT THIS?>> GIVEN THIS IS A RESEARCH QUESTION, I'LL TURN IT OVER TO DR. TAM. >> I THINK WE WILL CERTAINLY REVIEW THIS PAPER, BUT OF COURSE THERE'S ALWAYS A DISTRIBUTION IN TERMS OF INCUBATION PERIOD OF WHEN PEOPLE FEEL SICK.IT'S STILL THE MOST COMMON MEDIAN -- IT'S STILL FIVE TO SIX WEEKS -- FIVE TO SIX DAYS, ESSENTIALLY.SO WE HAVE TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE RANGE, SO I THINK, CERTAINLY, DIFFERENT HEALTH MEASURES ARE LAYERS, AND YOU'RENEVER GOING TO CATCH THE ENTIRECURVE, BUT OUR PUBLIC HEALTH MEASURES ARE THERE TO ENCOMPASSTHE RANGE OF THAT INCUBATION PERIOD.FOR ALL OF THOSE KINDS OF PAPERS, I HAVE TO SORT OF REVIEW HOW SOLID THE EPIDEMIOLOGIC EVIDENCE IS. >> AND I HAVE A FOLLOW UP QUESTION ABOUT THE MATERIALS SENT TO CHINA.WHEN CANADA SENT THIS, WAS THERE A RECIPROCAL AGREEMENT BYCHINA TO SEND BACK MATERIALS WHEN WE MIGHT NEED IT?>> AGAIN, I'LL TURN IT OVER TO DR. TAM ABOUT THE PRINCIPLE OF EQUIPMENT SHARING. >> SO I THINK AT THE OUTBREAK -- I THINK WE ARE IN ADIFFERENT MOMENT IN THE PANDEMIC, BUT THE W.H.O. CALLEDFOR GLOBAL SUPPORT TO CHINA, AND I THINK IT'S A VERY IMPORTANT PUBLIC HEALTH PRINCIPLE, WHICH IS CONTAINMENTAT SOURCE IS THE MOST IMPORTANTTHING ONE MUST DO AT THE BEGINNING OF ANY OUTBREAK.BY CONTAINING THE EPICENTRE, YOU'RE GOING TO HELP THE WORLD,YOU'RE GOING TO HELP CANADA, ASWELL.IN THE END, I THINK IT'S HELPING TO PREVENT FURTHER SPREAD, AND THAT WILL ALSO AFFECT CANADA AND THE REST OF THE WORLD.THAT'S REALLY THE CONCEPT, AND I THINK THAT THE GLOBAL COLLABORATION IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT, PARTICULARLY IN PANDEMIC CIRCUMSTANCES.IF YOU WANT SOMEONE TO CONTAIN THE SOURCE, WHETHER IT'S WEST AFRICA FOR EBOLA OUTBREAK OR ESSENTIALLY WUHAN FOR THE OUTBREAK THAT IMPACTED CHINA FIRST, THAT CONTAINMENT IS CRITICAL.>> THANK YOU.WE'LL TURN TO THE PHONE FOR THENEXT QUESTIONS. >> Caller: OKAY.GO AHEAD.>> Caller: YES.GOOD MORNING.HELLO.MINISTER FREELAND, I'D LIKE TO COME BACK TO THE ISSUE OF THE BORDER AND THE AMERICANS' INTENTIONS.IF YOU CAN'T TELL US EXACTLY WHAT THOSE INTENTIONS ARE, I'D LIKE TO ASK YOU, DO YOU REALLY TAKE THIS IDEA BY DONALD TRUMP SERIOUSLY, AND WHAT HAPPENS ON THE TRANSPORTATION OF GOODS, AND WHAT EFFECT WOULD IT HAVE ON THE SUPPLY CHAIN?[SPEAKING FRENCH LANGUAGE]>> WITH REGARD TO THE DISCUSSION REGARDING THE POSSIBILITY THAT WASHINGTON WOULD SEND TROOPS TO THE CANADIAN BORDER, I HAVE TO STRESS THE FACT THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT A POTENTIAL DECISION BY THE U.S., AND IT ISCOMPLETELY INAPPROPRIATE FOR ANOTHER COUNTRY TO TALK ABOUT THE INTERNAL CONVERSATIONS TAKING PLACE IN ANOTHER COUNTRYREGARDING A DECISION THAT MAY BE MADE YET.WITH REGARD TO KNOW PRECISELY WHAT THE AMERICANS ARE DISCUSSING IN WASHINGTON, WELL,THERE, WE HAVE TO SPEAK DIRECTLY TO THE AMERICANS IN WASHINGTON.I WANT TO BE VERY CLEAR HERE BECAUSE IT IS IMPORTANT FOR CANADIANS TO KNOW THAT OUR GOVERNMENT'S POSITION IS A POSITION THAT HAS ALREADY BEEN EXPRESSED DIRECTLY TO OUR AMERICAN NEIGHBOURS.IT'S THAT THE PROPOSAL OR THE IDEA TO HAVE AMERICAN TROOPS SENT TO OUR BORDER IS UNNECESSARY, AS THE PUBLIC HEALTH SITUATION DOES NOT REQUIRE SUCH ACTION.AND ON THE CANADIAN SIDE, WE DONOT THINK THAT IT WOULD BE APPROPRIATE GIVEN THE VERY CORDIAL RELATIONSHIP THAT OUR TWO COUNTRIES HAVE, AND THE MILITARY ALLIANCE THAT EXISTS BETWEEN OUR TWO COUNTRIES.WITH REGARD TO THE POSSIBLY -- POSSIBLE SECTOR OF INTERNATIONAL TRADE BETWEEN THETWO COUNTRIES, I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THAT THE OFFICIAL DECISION HAS NOT YET BEEN MADE, BUT THATIS NOT WHY WE'VE TAKEN SUCH A STRONG POSITION IN OUR CONVERSATIONS WITH THE AMERICANS.THE IDEA OF POSSIBLY SENDING TROOPS TO THE BORDER, WELL, I CAN ASSURE CANADIANS THAT IT'S NOT BECAUSE THE AMERICANS HAVE SOME KIND OF INTENTION TO PREVENT TRADE FROM TAKING PLACE.IT'S NOT A TRADE ISSUE.AT THE SAME TIME, CANADA HAS TAKEN A STRONG POSITION BECAUSEWE THINK THAT, SYMBOLICALLY SPEAKING, AND EVEN PHILOSOPHICALLY SPEAKING, WHEN IT COMES TO THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA, IT'S IMPORTANT FOR US TO HAVE A BORDER BETWEEN NEIGHBOURING COUNTRIES THAT HAVE BEEN FRIENDS FOR A VERY, VERY LONG TIME TO BE AN UNMILITARYIZED BORDER.THANK YOU.SO IF WE -- >> Caller: SO IF WE ASK THE QUESTION ANOTHER WAY, WE'RE ASKING ABOUT THE BORDER CONTROLS, FOR EXAMPLE, BECAUSE OF THE HIGH NUMBER OF CASES THAT ARE HAPPENING IN NEW YORK STATE.>> WELL, WE'VE ALREADY TAKEN A POSITION, AND IT'S BEEN DESCRIBED BY OUR MINISTER OF HEALTH.[Please stand by]>> THE TRUCKS THAT COME OVER THEBORDER, THEY BRING MEDICATION.SO PRESERVING TRADE BETWEEN THEUNITED STATES AND CANADA IS VERYIMPORTANT AND THAT'S WHAT WE'VEDONE.AT THE SAME TIME, WE NOW HAVE ARESTRICTION.DR.
