Amid ongoing concerns over the pace of the cross-country vaccine campaign now underway — as well as new lockdown measures expected to roll out in Ontario and Quebec over the next few days — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is set to check in with his fellow first ministers as he hosts his weekly tele-conference with provincial and territorial premiers.
