Throne speech: Trudeau government outlines their priorities amid COVID-19 pandemic | FULL

Global News published this video item, entitled “Throne speech: Trudeau government outlines their priorities amid COVID-19 pandemic | FULL” – below is their description.

Canada’s Governor General Julie Payette delivered the throne speech on behalf of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government on Wednesday, unveiling the Liberals’ long-term pandemic plan when Parliament resumes on September 23. The throne speech outlined sweeping plans to tackle things like climate targets, systemic racism, and the deep blow the COVID-19 pandemic has delivered to Canadians in vulnerable jobs and communities across the country. It comes as cases spike in many regions including Ontario and Quebec, and as frustrations grow with long wait times for testing and with a lack of reliable at-home or rapid test options. There were few specifics, though, on plans to address those daily realities, though the speech laid out promises that the federal government will help provinces ramp up testing capability and move as quickly as possible to get new testing methods approved and available. While throne speeches are typically a pageantry of ceremonial grandeur, the packed ritual was pared back to respect public health protocols to curb the spread of COVID-19.
