One of her children also tested positive for COVID-19 two days ago. Justin Trudeau had been in isolation since last week.
“This morning I tested positive for COVID-19. I feel good, and I will continue to work remotely this week, in accordance with public health guidelines. Please go get vaccinated and get the booster dose,” he wrote on Twitter on Monday morning.
Ce matin, j’ai eu un résultat positif au test de dépistage de la COVID-19. Je me sens bien, et je vais continuer de travailler à distance cette semaine, conformément aux consignes de la santé publique. S’il vous plaît, allez vous faire vacciner et recevoir la dose de rappel.

Several politicians have sent him recovery wishes, including the mayor of Montreal, Valérie Plante.
Je te souhaite un prompt rétablissement, Justin! Prends bien soin de toi et de tes proches.

Return to power
Parliamentary proceedings resume in Ottawa on Monday. The context is to say the least particular, as the “freedom convoy” has been installed in front of the parliament, on Wellington Street, since the beginning of the weekend. Vans and heavy trucks block the street, and multiply the horns on the spot.
Their presence forces the suspension of certain activities in the capital. Some businesses have temporarily closed in the area. Pressure on the government to force the departure of the convoy is mounting day by day.
The Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, was scheduled to address the media on the matter Monday at 11:15 a.m. The press conference was finally postponed until noon.
