OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says even one case of COVID-19 coming in from abroad is a case too many.

He says new restrictions on travel are coming and he is urging Canadians to cancel all travel plans they may have.

He says that includes travel abroad and travel to other provinces.

He says while the number of new cases linked to travel remains low, the government won’t hesitate to impose stricter measures at the border.

He says the bad choices of a few won’t be allowed to put others in danger.

The Liberal government has been hinting that tougher border controls are coming and Trudeau says they are working on what can be done without interrupting trade flows.
