Other countries should follow Canada's lead and pull out of 2020 Olympic games - Trudeau

OTTAWA, March 23 (Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Monday the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) made the right decision to not participate in the summer Olympics and to push for a postponement, urging other countries to do the same.

Speaking outside his home where he is under quarantine, Trudeau addressed the COC’s announcement from Sunday, saying: “This was absolutely the right call and everyone should follow their lead.” (Reporting by Steve Scherer and David Ljunggren)
