I literally laughed out loud when this headline scrolled through my Twitter feed:
Canada will donate excess COVID-19 vaccine to poorer countries
We’re at least six months away from knowing if we have enough to meet demand from Canadians, yet we can commit to giving the vaccine away to other countries?
Obviously, it’s never too early for another virtue-signalling Justin Trudeau press release.
As of this morning, approximately 250,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccines have arrived in Canada and are being distributed to provinces. Another 368,000 are expected to arrive by the end of December.
Canada is scheduled to receive 4 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines by the end of March and a total of 60 million from Moderna and Pfizer sometime in 2021.
If you don’t know the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines both require two doses per person to be effective then maybe, just maybe, you’ll fall for the nonsense spewed by the Prime Mistake and his loyal minions.
“I am pleased to confirm that just last night our prime minister confirmed that we would absolutely be donating any excess capacity that Canada has,” said International Aid Minister Karina Gould.
Gould refused to say when the Great Canadian Vaccine Giveaway would take place, nor would she confirm Canadians would be a priority.
“We will be taking it one day at a time,” Gould said.
Translation: “It’s politically damaging to the Liberal Party brand to admit we will give away millions of doses of COVID-19 vaccines long before the government meets demand from Canadians.”
W.H.O. COVAX Initiative
When Karina Gould says they’re “taking it one day at a time” she’s dancing around the fact Canada is a signatory to COVAX, an initiative led by the World Health Organization, that states:
What does “sufficient doses to protect a certain portion of their population” mean?
Whatever Justin Trudeau says it means.
And when he does make that decision, I’m sure Karina Gould will dutifully “confirm that our prime minister confirmed” whatever she says in her next vacuous virtue-signaling press release.
