juggling taking care of the kids while trying to get some work done at the kitchen table but frankly that's not everyone's reality for far too many people home isn't a safe place to be for others it's somewhere they're isolated and alone and for too many more they have no place to go at all tough times fall first and hardest on the most vulnerable in our communities but we can change that we can make sure that no one is left without help let me take a moment to speak directly to kids I know these past weeks have been tough they haven't seen your friends not able to go to school you've been

volunteers with Kids Help Phone there are people in your corner making sure you're okay and kids want to speak with your grandparents now our seniors are particularly vulnerable to covet 19 we all know that and it's for them that so many of us are staying home ourself isolating are following the rules but even if they're safe and isolated this is not easy on them maybe they're having trouble getting out to go to grocery if you get groceries maybe they're feeling particularly alone maybe they've already been isolated and this is just an extra degree of stress on them well we've got help

of all I'm very happy as as many people were to see that Sophie has been given the all-clear it's been a few days since she's been symptom free and obviously I want to thank everyone who's sent messages of support she's taken the kids to Harrington I'm going to continue to stay here to do the work that needs to be done and if you think about it people are wondering why I'm still in isolation up to a few days before she was clear I was all still sharing a roof we were being careful but sharing a roof is someone who tested positive for kovat 19 so I have to continue in isolation in order to be sure that we're following all the protocols and the recommendations by Health Canada the work that we're doing continues as a government there is there are lots of companies and organizations around the country who are discovering that you can do an awful lot of work via via telephone via video conferences and that's exactly what I'm doing and I will continue to do it as so many Canadians are as well Thank You next question operator your feet thank you the next question is from Neil Robson the Canadian Press the line is open I'm wondering if you could talk a little bit more about what need and help you will be providing to charities I know several hundred of them made a plea last week for help to be able to continue I think you hinted that there is something coming can you give some more reassurances that the charities that are being so relied upon right now will get to help today we have announcements for charitable and nonprofit organizations specifically that have been doing a great work helping out our youth and our seniors but we recognize there's much more to do not only our organizations in the charitable sector and the nonprofit sector doing incredibly important work during very difficult times they're also in many cases seeing their donations dry it up and are very worried about their capacity to continue to do the work they're doing that's why we're working closely with them and we'll have announcements to make in the coming days about how we're going to ensure that they can continue to do this incredible work that is so important for Canadians and a follow up Mia yeah I'm also wondering are you concerned at all that you're putting too much pressure on airline staff check-in staff people at the train stations to screen people for for covert 19 we already know that a lawful lot of people are not traveling have listened to the recommendations to stay home to avoid non-essential travel this is extremely important and from the very beginning we told people that if you have kovat 19 symptoms you need to stay home you should not travel you must not go out that's going to continue to be the the instructions we give but we've also asked airline and and air and train staff to ensure that nobody with symptoms boards their planes or trains thank you next question operator thank you Elsie next question Comcast only Madrid La

Tom may over Boogaloo around the community continuing a fairly confident the price you see thank you one more call operator please no see thank you next question Alex look here Toronto Star you line is open good morning Prime Minister you announced a whole lot of difference you know funds and measures for small businesses but you know a lot of small businesses are having trouble navigating through what you've announced in terms of tax referrals wage subsidies credit availability that sort of thing groups like the CFIB are trying to help them navigate this but are you considering anything from the federal government to make it easier for people to access the funding that they can access and getting funding to the right people we are doing an awful lot of things that have never been done before by any government in this country we has never been a reason to and as we're developing new policy solutions new ways of helping out people so that we can get through this time and come out the other end of it stronger than ever before we need to you know really figure out both what those things are and to ensure that people are going to be able to access them we are putting out as much information as we can about the different options and I recommend people go to government dot cxo Canada CA to be able to find more information about it I know there are organizations whether it's the CFIB or banks themselves that are giving advice around these new measures we're coming in but we're going to continue to communicate as best we possibly can so that everyone is able to access the help that's there for them even as we create new ways to help people I recognize the challenge and we're going to continue working on it and say Justin second Alex genre connect only talent fair

junkie kyon Ombudsman and you call about Prime Minister there there have been numerous reports that prisons are particular concern prisoners are concerned about the measures in place to protect them from the outbreak if it reaches prisons in Canada but what do you say to prisoners who are concerned right now that they're dealing with one bar soap for a week and no other countermeasures we are very concerned about the fact that our correctional institutions could be places where there is our places where there could be greater vulnerability to covet 19 that's why we've been working very closely with Corrections Canada and I know Minister Bill Blair Public Safety Minister will have more to say on this this is something that we are digging into very carefully because we need to make sure we're keeping everyone safe in this country okay so connect those institution the Correctional Canada so please vulnerable adult and what our cookies don't news alone considered Hawaii avec the sophistic election Canada II the Minister Blair poor as to reckon with and fanfares kinases I forget this terminal security thank you will now go to questions in the room Ian Wood CTV News Prime Minister this morning you made a small announcement for with regard to seniors giving money to charity groups there but what about those that are on fixed income seniors who have watched their investments and their retirement savings dwindle away on the market are we going to see any increases to CPP or other provisions for them like you've offered to to to workers and small businesses our focus right away has been figuring out how to ensure that we can replace sources of income and revenue that have been lost because of CO vat19 for so many Canadians across the country who were relying on their paychecks to get through from week to week until this actually hit but we recognize that seniors are facing greater vulnerabilities and we are looking carefully at measures to be able to support them through this tough time as well and the Dutch government has sent back 600, 000 masks to China that they deemed were defective I'm wondering when will we receive the masks that China has said they're going to send to us and what assurances do we have that they will be effective and have we seen a thaw in our relationship with China in the course of this crisis um we will be receiving equipment masks and gloves and gowns from China extremely shortly in the coming days and at the same time I can assure people that Health Canada has very strong procedures for evaluating for ensuring that what we get is up to the necessary standards and there will be no no coroner's cut on this one we need to make sure that the equipment that our health care workers rely on to keep them safe as they keep us safe is of a quality that is going to actually do the job and we're going to continue to engage with the world and try to work collaboratively through this difficult time it is a global pandemic and countries need to set aside their differences and work together to get us through this as best possible and that's certainly the approach that we're taking topical Beeman Global News prime minister in the case of the quarantine act and also in the case of the measures announced for travelers yesterday there's been no clear information about enforcement for those who break the rules and yesterday in Ontario we saw a snitch line for price Gaucher's I'm wondering if you can provide more information about enforcement in general and also wondering are you encouraging Canadians to report other Canadians who aren't following the rules to local authorities I think first of all it's really important that we all follow the rules what we do today what we do what we've done over the past few days what we will be doing over the coming days will have a direct impact on whether or not Canada is able to make it through this crisis in the best possible way it'll have a direct impact on our health care workers what we are choosing to do right now these weeks will affect deeply whether and how we get through this crisis and get out the other side better so I really impress upon everyone the need to self isolate to follow the rules to make sure that we are not putting ourselves or our neighbors or communities at risk Health Canada does follow-ups with people in terms of respecting quarantine that's an important part of what we do and I would really encourage Canadians to continue to spread the message share with each other how important it is to continue to stay home I'd also like to ask you to respond to reports that we're hearing about how truck drivers deemed essential workers are being treated when they cross the border not having access to washrooms or restaurants and some just being made to stay in their trucks I we are very concerned with the need to continue essential services and that includes obviously supply chains that are so important for keeping people Fed keeping people with the medications they need through this difficult time we continue to work with folks at the border to ensure that the smooth flow and respectful support for these essential workers happens at the same time as we're ensuring safety for for our citizens it's always a challenging balance to establish what we need to keep working to try and make sure that we can continue to get these essential goods while people are taking risks by continuing their essential work eldorado canada revenues escaped division during minute concern alle scenario so Lake Albert

there are cities across the country who are preparing arenas and community centers to prepare them into makeshift hospitals if needed what does that tell you about where we are in the arc of this crisis and as well what is the sage Canadians about their hospitals capacity I think it's a message that we are preparing for every eventualities we are hopeful that the behavior that people have engaged in now will keep numbers to a manageable level of people affected who need hospital hospitalization and that is why we are working extremely hard to encourage everyone to stay home and to not not risk spreading this virus further that is how we will control the spread our health care systems are designed to function close to capacity in normal situations day in and day out we need the our hospitals to be able to handle normal surges whether it's during flu season or after an accident or an illness we have a health system that works pretty well to handle the needs in regular times these are not regular times and therefore it is appropriate and necessary that we look at how to expand our health system to handle unprecedented numbers in an unprecedented crisis and I want to commend all the people unless you have symptoms of kovat 19 or unless you have returned from overseas or outside the country within 14 days and when you do go outside make sure if you're you don't have any of those three categories make sure that you are keeping your distance don't gather in groups in parks keep those distance and if you are in quarantine or self-isolation and you need some fresh air open a window or step outside onto your stoop if that's a private place but really we need people to be abiding by the rules the public health has put out particularly people who have returned from travel outside the country we are ensuring that we're able to deal with this surge people are putting situations putting emergency measures in place but we are hoping that there won't be a surge because we have seen other areas overwhelmed even if they have strong health care systems that's why it's so important that everyone abide by the instructions given yes we put them on when Johnny.
