Prime Minister Justin Trudeau addressed media on Tuesday, providing updates on the federal response to COVID-19, and getting personal over how the pandemic has impacted his family.

Trudeau said that the pandemic "really sucks," saying that the increasing cases in Canada could lead to cancellations of in-person Christmas celebrations, or Halloween.

"It's frustrating to have to explain to your kids in many parts of the country—like here in Ottawa—that we're not going to be trick or treating this weekend. And it's frustrating knowing that unless we're really, really careful, there may not be the kinds of family gatherings we want to have at Christmas," said Trudeau.

"My six-year-old asked me as few weeks ago: 'Dad, is COVID-19 forever?' I mean, he's in Grade 1, this was supposed to be his big year as a big boy, and they're not even singing in his classroom," he continued.

Trudeau urged Canadians to follow the advice of health authorities, as deaths in Canada inch closer to the 10,000 mark.

"We will get through this. Vaccines are on the horizon. Spring and summer will come and they will be better than this winter," he said.

Trudeau said that lockdowns did work in the spring as the curb was flattened. "Now in the second wave... We have better tools to deal with COVID-19, and we can be a little more targeted," said Trudeau. "It's frustrating to see friends in the other end of the country do things that you can't."
