Mr. Speaker, every step of the way we have been informed by science, experts and data on how to keep Canadians safe through this pandemic. We recognize that people are eager to get things back to normal. We also know that as people get fully vaccinated it will be possible to remove many of the restrictions that are in place. We will be making announcements around that in the coming weeks. The reality is that every step of the way our top priority must be the safety and security of Canadians during what are hopefully the final months of this pandemic in Canada.
