Canadians are being strongly urged to not travel to their cottages during the coronavirus crisis. This is especially true for cottages that lie across provincial borders. Justin Trudeau, however, is ignoring these rules yet again in order to go to his cottage at Harrington Lake.
Trudeau will give the daily briefing on the coronavirus pandemic in Ottawa Saturday before leaving for his cottage to join his family for Sunday and Monday, according to the Canadian Press. It's expected that he will give no updates on these days.
His previous Easter weekend vacation to Harrington caused outrage as it confirmed for many that there's one set of rules for the prime minister and another for ordinary Canadians. It even led to Trudeau being mocked on Fox News' Tucker Carlson tonight.
Trudeau's cottage getaway involves crossing the provincial border of Quebec and Ontario, a trip that has been strongly discouraged by provincial premiers. Police have been set up at the border to bar entry in either direction. Ordinary Canadians are being regularly turned away.
