Trudeau, Justin

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau defended a bill that would regulate YouTube videos as programs subject to CRTC controls.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will be entering a COVID-19 quarantine hotel when he jets back from the G7 meetings this month – but it won’t be the same one regular Canadians are held.

International arrivals are only allowed in airports in Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary, where they having quarantine hotels nearby.

But Trudeau will do is own lockdown in Ottawa, near his home.

Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland has said she will also go to a quarantine hotel when she returns with Trudeau.

Calgary MP Michelle Rempel-Garner introduced a motion into the House Friday demanding Trudeau stay in one of the hotels regular Canadians had to use.

“He needs to stay where the rest of us are expected to stay, or scrap the program,” Rempel-Garner tweeted.

A government advisory panel recommended last week that the Trudeau government stop the quarantine program.

The fine for those refusing to comply rose this week from $3,000 to $5,000.

Trudeau travels to England June 11 to 13 for the G7 meeting.
