Minister of International Trade and Liberal MP for University-Rosedale. Author. Proud wife and mother of three. Runner when I can squeeze it in.
With Ontario declaring a stay-at-home order, the federal government has support available to help Canadians and businesses get through this difficult time. COVID-19 benefits and services can be found here .
Fighting the pandemic is a Team effort. Today I chaired a meeting with @MonaFortier , @bankofcanada Governor, and provincial and territorial Finance Ministers to discuss the current state of the economy and how to build back a stronger, more inclusive country for everyone.
My congratulations to @JanetYellen , who made history today as the first woman U.S. Treasury Secretary. Canada looks forward to working with you as a friend, partner and ally.
And a very personal congratulations to @KamalaHarris ! Your victory is an inspiration to women & girls and to people of colour across our continent. I look forward to working w/ you to help both our countries crush this global pandemic & to crack more glass ceilings along the way.
The future of democracy depends on governing with integrity. Facts matter. Truth matters. Competence and honesty, among elected leaders and in our public services, matter.
Israel and Canada are friends & allies. To claim I suggested otherwise, and to invent a comparison I never made, is dishonest & cynical. Canadians deserve better from their political leaders, @ErinOTooleMP . I trust you will apologize for your deliberately dishonest comments today.
