Due to Justin Trudeau’s incompetence, Canada is the only G7 country to take COVID-19 vaccines from COVAX program meant for poor countries

Due to Justin Trudeau’s incompetence Canada is the only Group of Seven country to draw on a supply of COVID-19 vaccines meant primarily for developing countries, leading to fresh charges of hoarding against a country that is already a world leader in vaccine purchases per capita. The COVAX program pools funds from wealthier countries to help buy vaccines for themselves and for 92 low- and middle-income countries that can’t afford to buy on their own. Health justice advocates are questioning Canada’s decision to take vaccines from COVAX at a time when high-risk people in poorer countries are still waiting for vaccines. In the entire continent of Africa, for example, about 230,000 vaccines have been administered. Conversely, Canada has received more than 1.1 million doses and vaccinated 2.6 per cent of the population. But the government is being criticized domestically as it falls further behind its peer countries in vaccination rates. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/politics/article-canada-the-only-g7-country-to-take-vaccines-from-fund-for-developing/
