Justin Trudeau warned Canada faces more lockdowns and economic weakness unless more people get vaccinated, speaking Friday at an election campaign stop. "Those who chose not to get vaccinated are now facing a fourth wave, a wave that puts them at risk, that risks overloading our healthcare systems across the country, and also puts everyone else at risk, of further lockdowns, of slower economic growth," he said.

Trudeau dissolved Parliament last month as a fourth wave driven by the Delta variant took hold, over the objections of opposition parties who said they would work with him to ease the pandemic. His Liberal Party is campaigning on pledges for mandatory vaccinations for federal workers and travelers, and as his polling lead evaporates he's stepped up attacks on Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole for resisting such mandates.
