    Canadian Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland on Monday said the federal government is launching consultations to help “inform and guide” the country’s economic growth plan.

    Freeland outlined the need to rebuild Canada’s economy even stronger than before the coronavirus pandemic, and added this task must be done for it to be “more innovative and more competitive than ever,” especially since the pandemic has “exposed critical gaps” in Canada’s social safety net.

    As the government says any Canadian who wants a coronavirus vaccine by September will be able to access one, Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland is stopping short of telling Canadians they can plan for a return to normal at the end of the year.

    “This is a sneaky, sneaky virus and we all have to be aware of that,” Freeland cautioned after taking a long pause in response to being asked if Canadians can expect things to reopen at the end of 2021.

    “Having said that, I think it’s also extremely important for us to see that there is light at the end of the tunnel… There is light at the end of the tunnel, but it is a long tunnel.”
