Prime Minister Justin Trudeau addresses Canadians from outside his home in Ottawa on the federal government’s response to the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) pandemic. He also comments on reports that United States president-elect Joe Biden plans to withdraw authorization for the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. The pipeline is intended to carry bitumen from Alberta to refineries on the Gulf of Mexico. The prime minister also faces questions about Canada’s supply of Pfizer vaccines and about the fate of Conservative MP Derek Sloan. Party leader Erin O’Toole wants to remove Sloan from caucus for accepting a donation to his leadership campaign from a known white supremacist.
