When and How Will the Coronavirus Pandemic End?

Canada says it will apply extra scrutiny to foreign investment in companies that are related to public health or that supply critical goods during the pandemic.

“There are vulnerable businesses that are going to be important to our recovery who are perhaps exposed to foreign purchases,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told reporters in Ottawa Sunday. “We will be strengthening our oversight and paying close attention to foreign investment in this country to ensure there aren’t people taking advantage of this crisis.”
