Canada PM Trudeau indicates U.S. border restrictions to last a long time
  + stars: | 2020-12-01 | by ( Reuters Staff | ) www.reuters.com sentiment -0.96   time to read: +1 min
Trudeau’s comments were a clear indication that the border restrictions will last well into 2021. The two countries have highly integrated economies and Canada sends 75% of its goods exports to the United States every month. “Until the virus is significantly more under control everywhere around the world, we’re not going to be releasing the restrictions at the border,” Trudeau told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. when asked about the issue. But the premiers of Canada’s major provinces have repeatedly said they have no interest in reopening the border as long as cases of COVID-19 continue to escalate in the United States. A second wave is also sweeping across Canada, where authorities are starting to reimpose restrictions on businesses and limiting the size of gatherings.

LONDON/TORONTO (Reuters) - Britain and Canada struck a rollover trade deal on Saturday to protect the flow of $27 billion-worth (£20.32 billion) of goods and services between them after Brexit, and vowed to start talks on a bespoke agreement next year. Her Canadian counterpart Mary Ng said the transitional agreement “largely replicates” the EU deal on tariff reductions and provisions for labour and environment. “We do want an ambitious, high level comprehensive trade agreement with the UK,” Ng said, signalling Canada wanted similar terms to the EU deal. In less than two years it has agreed trade deals with 53 countries, accounting for 164 billion pounds ($217.82 billion) of British bilateral trade. The UK-Canada Trade Continuity Agreement will be subject to final legal checks before it is formally signed.

Cases continue to spike and authorities complain some people are being more careless about taking precautions. Tam said the worst case scenario, a spike to 60,000 daily cases, would occur if people became more sociable. Even if current restrictions on gatherings are maintained, new daily cases will jump to over 20,000 by Dec. 31 compared with less than 5,000 now. “Absolutely do not go above what we have now (in terms of daily cases) otherwise we are really in trouble,” she said. Officials predict that by Nov. 30 the total death toll could be between 11,870 and 12,120, with the total cases between 366,500 and 378,600.

OTTAWA (Reuters) - Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Friday that Canada’s hospital system could be overwhelmed by a possible quadrupling of new COVID-19 cases by year end as its biggest city Toronto prepared to impose a lockdown. Cases continue to spike and authorities complain some people are being more careless about taking precautions. Earlier, Chief Public Health Officer Theresa Tam said in the worst case scenario, a spike to 60,000 daily cases, would occur if people became more sociable. “The situation is extremely serious and further action is required to avoid the worst case scenario,” Ford said at a press briefing. Officials predict that by Nov. 30 the total death toll could be between 11,870 and 12,120, with the total cases between 366,500 and 378,600.

OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s main rival in an election that could come as early as next year on Thursday said he would toughen the country’s stance on China, including potentially boycotting some goods produced there.

China has also shut down most imports of Canadian canola. “Maybe flip flops and patio furniture might be OK if we can trace those to more appropriate sources,” he said.

Huawei Technologies Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou leaves a court hearing in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada November 17, 2020. Canada Border Services Agency’s (CBSA) officers have testified that they had reason to detain and investigate Meng regardless of the pending arrest warrant. Meng’s arrest has set off a diplomatic conflict between Ottawa and Beijing. On Thursday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he had no regrets about Meng’s arrest regardless of foreign policy implications. Recent testimony has reviewed and scrutinized minute-to-minute developments at the airport on the day of Meng’s arrest, as her lawyers seek to prove abuses of process that invalidate her extradition.
