What nice information that Canada will be capable to produce its personal vaccine later this yr by way of Novavax in Montreal. The one draw back to this in fact is that the manufacturing facility has but to be constructed.
Right here we’ve got one other instance of presidency incompetence in dealing with something. Anyone way back might have seen the necessity for this.
We now have been in a pandemic for almost a yr, so by way of ahead pondering and planning you’ll count on to anticipate the issues of acquiring and administering the vaccine.
However not the Canadian authorities. Why don’t we’ve got services to fabricate?
This entire enterprise of acquiring and manufacturing, then distribution would have been higher managed by the non-public sector. Put somebody in cost, who by way of every day buying and distribution and all different logistical necessities is aware of what they’re doing. Manufacturing corporations do that daily.
As an alternative right here we’re a G7/8 nation who ranks barely within the high 20 on this planet for vaccine pictures — even behind Brazil, Romania and Iceland.
Generally on this world you need to be a squeaky wheel, sadly I ponder if our authorities even has a wheel.
