Ottawa, ON – The Hon. Erin O’Toole, Leader of Canada’s Conservatives and the Official Opposition, issued the following statement on Justin Trudeau’s third wave:
“As the third wave of this pandemic began to grip Canada with rising case counts, hospitalizations, and new lockdowns, Justin Trudeau told us he had no regrets about his handling of the pandemic. It is easy to have no regrets when others are left to clean up the mess.
“While Justin Trudeau has been busy patting himself on the back, Canadians are falling further and further behind.
“The Trudeau government has categorically failed to keep COVID variants out of Canada, failed to keep our border under control, and failed to secure vaccines in January and February. This is Justin Trudeau’s third wave.
“As we watch other countries like the U.S. and the U.K. emerge from the pandemic, Canada sinks deeper into a crisis of the Prime Minister’s making.
“Canada’s Conservatives will continue to hold Justin Trudeau accountable for his failure to keep Canadians safe and secure the future.”
