Premier François Legault has asked the Federal government to ban all non-essential international travel leaving Canada, like the people flying to all-inclusive resorts.

He says that “…given the situation … in Quebec” he doesn’t “understand [how] a person decides to go to … … an all-inclusive hotel” and if he doesn’t get an answer from the federal government, the province will implement its own measures.

In the meantime, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Federal travel rules could change very quickly and suggests people who booked trips cancel them, that the risk of bringing home the virus or ending up stranded abroad is not worth it.
