COVID-19: Canada Responds

NDP Leader on Line 5 Pipeline, COVID-19 Protests

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh speaks with reporters on Parliament Hill, where he reiterates his call for the federal government to improve the paid-sick leave program to fight the spread of COVID-19. He also faces questions on the imminent shutdown of Enbridge’s Line 5 pipeline, which carries crude oil and natural gas from Alberta to eastern Canada by way of the United States. Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has ordered the line to be shut down by May 12, 2021, citing environmental concerns. The NDP leader is also asked about the link between anti-lockdown protests and far-right groups. (May 11, 2021) (no interpretation)
