Global National: Feb. 12, 2021 | Confusion surrounding COVID-19 travel restrictions

New restrictions for incoming travellers will come into effect on Feb. 22, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced on Friday — including a fresh hotel quarantine requirement. But, there are still unanswered questions and confusion surrounding the process. Abigail Bimman has more.

Canada’s chief public health officer warns that new COVID-19 variants threaten to derail the work being done to cut the number of cases and hospitalizations. As Heather Yourex-West reports, some in the medical community fear a third wave is coming unless we change course now.

Newfoundland and Labrador election officials have cancelled in-person voting a day before polling stations were set to open, in response to an alarming rise in coronavirus cases in the province. Ross Lord has details.

The defense attorneys for Donald Trump wrapped up their presentation in the former president’s impeachment trial today, where lawyers argued that Trump didn’t incite the Jan. 6 rally crowd to riot at the U.S. Capitol and that his words were merely figures of speech. Jackson Proskow has the latest.

Every day more cases of COVID-19 variants are being confirmed in Canada, and since they are easier to catch, Canadians are likely going to have to brace themselves for even tighter public health restrictions. Dawna Friesen takes a deeper look.

Five years ago Prime Minister Justin Trudeau declared that Canada’s back on the international stage. Mike Le Couteur has a reality check on Canada’s foreign policy.

Plus, COVID-19 has forced Canada’s only NBA team to play out its season in the U.S. Mike Armstrong checks in with the Toronto Raptors to see how the move has gone.
