Coronavirus: Trudeau, health officials address COVID-19 situation in Canada | LIVE

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the federal government is creating a new emergency rent subsidy that will provide funds directly to businesses who need help paying their rent.

The previous rent subsidy was paid to landlords.The new subsidy will cover up to 65 per cent of eligible rent costs for businesses which have lost revenue because of COVID 19 and up to 90 per cent for businesses which have to close entirely because of the second wave of COVID-19.

As well, the coronavirus pandemic is expected to accelerate unless Canadians reduce their contact with others, new modelling shows.

Health Canada’s latest modelling suggests that by Oct. 17, the cumulative case total could range between 188,150 and 197,830, Dr. Theresa Tam, Canada’s chief public health officer, said.

In addition, Trudeau discussed job numbers after Canada added 378,000 net new jobs in September, Statistics Canada says. The gain, which was far stronger than economists expected, brings employment to within 720,000 of its level in February, before the novel coronavirus pandemic took hold in Canada.

    I keep wondering when all those ethics violations are going to be taken care of? I also wonder why the NDP and Bloc sold out their morals and backbones for concessions.

    Someone should get in there and cut out the first 20 minutes of this stuff, so when you turn it on he comes out right away. I know it's no great sin, no big deal, but they spend big bucks on sound and such, it seems like a simple fix.

    Someone who earned less than $5000 who claimed the CERB has to pay it all back. Someone who earned $100 000, only has to pay half of it back! Brilliant policy

    The only reason why we flattened the curve before is because we shut down. Until the Vaccine has been administered to most of the population the only way to flatten this curve unfortunately is to shut down again. this wave is worse than the first.

    It's always "it's you the peoples responsibility, it's all down to your actions, what you do now will affect what we see in 2 weeks….yadda yada yada". The problem is the people don't know night from day anymore, every report or update confuses, contradicts others. Wear a mask, it's so important, but on the other hand you don't have to. Stay at home, go to work, isolate as much as possible, send your kids to school, keep your bubble small, curves is up, curve is down.
    It's never going to be our leaders responsibility or fault if anything goes wrong, it will always be because the people didn't listen. It's pure politics, shift the blame to others, and cover their butts.

    Oh no they forgot to close the comments, here comes all the retards that thinks this is fake. I’m 90% sure they’re the same people who thinks vaccines are fake too.

    Already too late for some. Saw a few Boston Pizzas closed their doors. And why hasn't anyone questioned the validity of the models being used?

    Honestly speaking, all actions are reactionary. In fact, the words from the PM and advisors were from the beginning of COVID arrival in Canada was, “we are watching, we are monitoring.”
    This is NOT the first health epidemic Canada has faced, and the approach has NEVER changed when tackling such problems. It is entirely fair to say that letting people walk off planes quarantine from flights originating in mainland China and Northern Italy at International Airports in Canada for weeks back in March without quarantine was a mistake. No hindsight 20/20 vision here.
    After this, first mistake control of the disease was reactionary and in catchup mode.
    International passengers fie Arrival Forms. No followup on arriving passengers by jet in particular from already known pandemic areas was mistake #2.
    Canada Revenue Agency knows last years income from employment for all but those who are just entering the labour force. It is on a computer, along with Social Insurance Nu bet and Home Address. Absolute perfection with regards to the latter is acknowledged as impossible BUT accurate for an exceedingly high percentage of Canadians. Income based on “historical income” rather than a One Cheque Sum Fits All, approach which was a “brain dead approach” was error #3.
    Swing … Whiff, Swing … Whiff, Swing … Whiff.
    Thank goodness our PM and Cabinet Ministers are not in our military!! Planning, monitoring under their watchful eye would see an invasion force entering Canada on Parliament Hill in Ottawa before an announcement from the PMO that an invasion force that the Government had surrendered.

    We have a PM that is running a country behind a desk, pathetic.
