Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will quarantine in an Ottawa hotel after he returns from in-person meetings with G 7 leaders in the U . K . next week, according to sources in his office. Trudeau said last week that he would attend the meetings of G 7 leaders who are set to meet in London on June 11 to 13 for conversations expected to cover topics like COVID-19 vaccine passports and the global economic recovery from the ravages of the virus. A hotel in Ottawa is currently being prepared for him and Trudeau — and the delegation travelling with him — will remain there until his PCR test comes back

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is facing backlash for not staying at a designated quarantine hotel after this weekend's G7 summit in the U.K.

Trudeau's office has confirmed that the prime minister and the Canadian delegation will quarantine in an Ottawa hotel once he arrives from his first international trip since the pandemic began, and will remain there until his PCR test comes back negative.

Barlow said he believes Trudeau should stay at the same hotels any other Canadian would. Conservative MP Michelle Rempel Garner has proposed a motion, that could be voted on Tuesday, demanding Trudeau stay at an already approved site rather than a new location in Ottawa. “These strict public health protocols, which include hotel quarantine in Ottawa, are for the prime minister and all of the delegation — including media — and are the same strict protocols every other traveller has to abide by.” Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland returned from the G 7 summit this weekend and is

Trudeau flew out of the nation's capital of Ottawa on Thursday; Canadian prime ministers do not fly commercial due to security reasons. However, Ottawa is not among the Canadian cities that accept international flights during the coronavirus pandemic.

International arrivals have been diverted to major airports in four cities—Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and Calgary—where Canadian travelers have had to quarantine for up to three days (pending a negative PCR test) in a government-designated airport hotel.

The mandatory hotel stay has been in place since February with officials suggesting that the 72-hour stay would rack up to $2,000.

On Wednesday, the government announced that fully vaccinated Canadian citizens would no longer have to complete a hotel quarantine, instead isolating at home until the negative COVID test comes back.

Justin Trudeau Warns Canada 'Not Immune' to Intolerance After Deadly Attack on Muslim Family

  Justin Trudeau Warns Canada 'Not Immune' to Intolerance After Deadly Attack on Muslim Family "If anyone thinks racism and hatred don't exist in this country, I want to say this: How do we explain such violence to a child in a hospital?," Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said.A pickup truck plowed into the family at an intersection in London, Ontario on Sunday as they took an evening stroll. The boy's two parents, a grandmother, and his 15-year-old sister were killed. Trudeau called the assault a "terrorist attack motivated by hatred" while speaking in front of Parliament. The family immigrated to Canada 14 years ago.

Trudeau ’s comments come after weeks of the government urging Canadians not to take any non-essential trips outside of the country, and amid a warning from Trudeau that he may impose restrictions at any time that could make it harder for them to return. Cases linked to international travel account for just two per cent of COVID-19 cases in Canada . The measures come amid an uncomfortable reality about the number of travellers that are skipping quarantine measures altogether. More than 6.3 million travellers who have entered Canada since the start of the pandemic were not required to quarantine

Officials say Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has discussed loosening the quarantine requirement for fully-vaccinated Americans. A pact limiting travel between the two countries has been in effect since March 2020, and has shattered Canada 's tourism industry. Canada is considering lifting COVID-19 travel restrictions for fully-vaccinated American tourists on June 22, as world leaders prepare to discuss a global reopening plan at the G 7 summit . Officials have said that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has discussed loosening the 14-day quarantine requirement for American travelers

But Trudeau has only received his first dose of the AstraZeneca COVID vaccine.

In a press release issued last week, Trudeau's office said, "The Prime Minister and the Canadian delegation traveling to the U.K. and Belgium will follow strict public health protocols and procedures during their visit, while in transit, and when they arrive home."

In comments sent to Newsweek, Trudeau's press secretary Alex Wellstead added that, "These strict public health protocols, which include hotel quarantine in Ottawa, are for the Prime Minister and all of the delegation—including media—and are the same strict protocols every other traveler has to abide by."

However, other elected officials have disagreed that Trudeau's plan follows the same protocols that other Canadian travelers have had to adhere to.

The new guy? Biden debuts at democracy's most exclusive club

  The new guy? Biden debuts at democracy's most exclusive club WASHINGTON (AP) — Angela, Boris, Emmanuel, Justin, Mario, Yoshihide and a relative newcomer: Joe. They’re the board of global democracy’s most exclusive club, and they’re meeting this week after four years of U.S. disruption and a two-year coronavirus interruption. Already on a first-name basis with relationships that range from just months to years, the leaders of the Group of Seven industrialized democracies are gathering Friday amid hopes that the departure of their most unruly member and a new era of personal friendships enhanced by face-to-face discussions can restore a global anti-authoritarian consensus on climate, the coronavirus, China and Russia.

PM Trudeau to quarantine at Ottawa hotel after upcoming trip to G 7 summit . Travellers who refuse hotel quarantine will soon face larger fines. In late May, just after the restrictions were rolled over for another month, Canada ’s COVID-19 Testing and Screening Expert Advisory Panel called for an end of the hotel quarantine program for all travellers. Comprised of infectious disease specialists and public health experts, the panel raised a series of issues with mandatory hotel quarantines , including that a number of travellers chose to pay the fine of up to ,000 to skip the hotel stay , without presenting a

Travellers coming into Canada will be forced into mandatory hotel quarantines , part of a suite of measures designed to keep Canadians at home as the government grows increasingly concerned about the risk of new COVID variants that Travellers testing negative will be able to finish their 14-day quarantine at home, but Trudeau said the government would step up surveillance of those quarantines . Private security firms have been hired to knock on doors of returning travellers to ensure they’re staying at home, and the government will be

At the House of Commons Health Committee, Conservative MP John Barlow questioned the head of Public Health Agency of Canada Ian Stewart about Trudeau's quarantine plans.

"I just find it strange that the prime minister of our country is traveling internationally, which he's asking every Canadian not to do, and there wouldn't be a very detailed strategy and plan for his quarantine," Barlow said.

Stewart said the agency was focused on making sure that international travelers are being tested and not spreading the virus, which Trudeau's plan follows.

Conservative MP Michelle Rempel Garner also called out Trudeau in a tweet, writing: "I guess the hotels where the alleged sexual assaults and COVID-19 outbreaks didn't cut it for Trudeau—he gets his own special hotel at your expense. One set of rules for him, one for everyone else."

On Tuesday, Garner proposed a motion demanding that the prime minister stays at an already approved site in one of the four cities where international arrivals have been limited to.

A government advisory panel has already recommended an end to the hotel quarantine program but the recommendation remains under review by the federal government, which on Thursday, increased the fine to $5,000 for travelers who refuse to complete the program.

Allies hope to bond, look beyond virus at G-7 summit in UK

  Allies hope to bond, look beyond virus at G-7 summit in UK LONDON (AP) — There will be roundtable meetings, one-on-one chats and a group photo against a picturesque backdrop. When leaders of some of the world’s richest nations meet Friday at the English seaside for a three-day Group of Seven summit, much of the choreography will be familiar. But the world has changed dramatically. Since the G-7 last met two years ago, the coronavirus pandemic has killed more than 3.7 million people and decimated economies with lockdowns and layoffs. A planned G-7 meeting in the United States last year was postponed, then canceled.So when British Prime Minister Boris Johnson welcomes U.S.

Because Canada has focused on getting at least one shot into every citizen's arms, few will be exempt from the hotel quarantine. While nearly 70 percent of Canadian adults have at least one dose of a COVID vaccine, only 7 percent are fully vaccinated.

All nonessential travelers, including tourists who are neither Canadian nor permanent residents, are barred from entering the country at this time.

The Canadian-U.S. border has also been closed for more than a year now, with current restrictions set to expire on June 21.

Newsweek reached out to Trudeau's office for comment but did not hear back before publication.
