Trudeau test positive for COVID, Parliament set to resume today



Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced via social media that he has tested positive for COVID-19.


This comes days after the Prime Minister announced that one of his children had tested positive as well.


Trudeau said in a post, "This morning, I tested positive for COVID-19. I’m feeling fine – and

I’ll continue to work remotely this week while following public health guidelines. Everyone, please get vaccinated and get boosted."


This new comes on the heels of Parliament setting to resume. According to the official itinerary released by the Prime Ministers Office (PMO), Trudeau is set to attend Question Period virtually this morning.


Outside on Parliament Hill, the Freedom Convoy that has been setup since Saturday morning looms heavily as Parliament sets to return this morning.


Canadians from coast to coast to coast arrived on Parliament Hill to send a message to the Prime Minsiter and the Federal Government, 'End restrictions, and Lets get back to normal.'


The convoy started as a protest to the Cross Border travel restrictions the trucking industry was required to undergo if passing from Canada to the United Staes.


The rally outside of parliament continued into Sunday. No word on how long the rally would continue for, as of 8:30 AM MST the live feed from Parliament Hill Live Web Camera didn't give a view of Wellington street but few people were seen at the hill.
