Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is making clear he doesn't want to be on the campaign trail this fall.

At the same time, Trudeau says holding an election campaign, if one was forced on Canadians, would not be an irresponsible act.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is warning Canadians that we aren't immune as countries in Europe and elsewhere see a steady rise in new COVID-19 infections.

Trudeau says we've come too far to give up now. He is urging Canadians to follow public health guidelines and stay vigilant.

Trudeau is wrapping up a two-day cabinet retreat today.

Cabinet meetings included talk of a bold plan to rebuild Canada's battered economy, as well as the more immediate challenge of confronting a potential second-wave.
