Coronavirus: Minister says Canadians should come home as more countries lock down

Canada may not have closed its borders, but Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages Mélanie Joly said Canadian travellers should come home as more countries around the world go into quarantine mode and restrict travel over the novel coronavirus.

“Canadians are at the best when they’re pulling each other together. And that’s exactly what we need right now,” Joly said in an interview with Global News’ Mike Le Couteur on Sunday’s episode of The West Block.
