"In December’s Angus Reid poll on this issue, just 23% of Canadians said the federal government had done a “poor job in securing vaccines” compared to 47% who said the government had done a good job. In the latest survey, 57% said the government has done a poor job while just 29% say the government has done a good job.

After being shown results in other countries including the U.S., U.K., France and the Netherlands, survey respondents were asked whether or not the vaccine program was a failure, 59% said failure and that Canada should be doing better compared to other countries. This view is shared by 82% of Conservative voters, 47% of NDP voters and even 41% of Liberal voters.

It’s also a view widely held in Ontario and Quebec – both vital to Trudeau’s re-election chances. Even half of voters in Atlantic Canada and British Columbia feel that way...

The daunting math of Trudeau's goal to have all willing Canadians get COVID vaccine by September

Between April 1 and Sept. 30 there are 26 weeks, meaning the provinces will have to put at least two million doses per week into the arms of Canadians

But an Angus Reid poll released on Friday showed that just 28 per cent of Canadians are confident that the September number is achievable and 36 per cent of people believe it will be 2022 before they have their shot.

Why Canada is falling behind in Covid vaccinations

Canada's inoculation drive began 14 December, and the country has so far given just over 1.18 million doses. It currently stands at 40 in global rankings of doses per 100 people, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

"Delays in the delivery of vaccines appear to have hurt the Liberals," said Canadian polling firm Abacus Data on 5 February.

"Government approval, the prime minister's image, and vote share are all down over the past few weeks. Simultaneously, negative perceptions of the government's handling of the vaccination file have risen sharply."

Smug Liberal government is too incompetent to get vaccination right

You may think we have a vaccination crisis in this country. And if you’re not a paid or volunteer Liberal flak you may think it’s about health not PR. But it’s really a crisis of government competence. The reason they can’t vaccinate is they can’t do much of anything.

For instance buy sidearms or ships for the armed forces. Get guns away from criminals or tell criminals from law-abiding citizens. Decide when to lock us down or explain why. Deliver a budget or explain why they haven’t. Balance the books. Fix health wait lists. Maintain infrastructure. Be transparent.

We live in a land of childish make-believe instead of coming to grips with the adult reality of human frailty and the irrevocable nature of some mistakes. It’s up to voters to wake up and shake the politicians awake on everything from health care to geopolitics.

Otherwise, if you think this is a crisis, just wait.

Trudeau begs for vaccine to save political hide

"This week, our prime minister, Justin Trudeau, begged India to give us COVID vaccines.

Liberal backbencher Dr. Marcus Powlowski (Thunder Bay-Rainy River), a medical doctor who used to work with the World Health Organization, recently wrote to colleagues, “It is hard to have faith. It is hard now to accept reassurances that we are prepared, that we are doing all of the right things, when we can never, ever get any specifics.”

So, the first thing wrong with the PM’s cadging to Delhi is that it is probably driven mostly by panic and politics.

The second problem is that India’s vaccine production is supposed to be for domestic use by its own 1.3 billion people or by the developing world. Does Trudeau’s plea to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi therefore mark the second time in as many weeks that the Trudeau government has tried to steal vials from poor countries just to save its electoral hide back home?"

There may be more vaccines coming to Canada, but will it be enough, and will they be here in time to prevent what many believe to be as our impending surge into a third wave?

‘Perfect storm’: Is Canada headed for a third wave of COVID-19?


"With a downward trend of daily cases, Canada is seemingly wrestling through the tail end of a second wave. But public health officials and infectious diseases experts are already raising the alarm bells on a third peak.

“The combination of that optimism from a successful lockdown leading to governments wanting to reopen and the background of these variants of concern emerging, plus, delays in the vaccine arrival is setting up really this perfect storm for a massive third wave,” said Dr. Brooks Fallis, a critical care physician in Toronto.

But, since vaccinations for the general population are not expected to start until April, it is less likely that the COVID-19 vaccines could prevent a third wave, Dr. Isaac Bogoch, an infectious diseases specialist and physician at Toronto General Hospital, said."

Mother inlaw 89 got her first COVID-19 shot.

She then received a letter stating ,the vaccine will not prevent you from getting the virus but may help to reduce symptoms if you do get the virus.

So good luck with that !!

Noway of knowing when or if a second shot will be available!

Canada’s procurement efforts are disastrous for a G7 country

"Early on in the global frenzy for vaccine development and testing, Canada had negotiated a joint-testing program reportedly under the responsibility of then Innovation Minister, Navdeep Bains with a promising Chinese developer, CanSino Biologics. Mere days after Ottawa announced the program, Conservative Health Critic, Michelle Rempel Garner was told that the vaccine supplies set to be shipped to Canada for testing was being held by the Chinese General Administration of Customs in Beijing. Nevertheless, the CanSino vaccine prospect quickly slid down the Vaccine Task Force’s global rankings and recommendations, rendering any further efforts as futile.

While Justin Trudeau was wasting time trying to mend diplomatic ties with a Chinese government that wasn’t having any of it, other developed countries swiftly signed on with the most promising candidates in Pfizer and Moderna, as well as taking steps to boost domestic production capacity."

How Ottawa's mistakes ensured you'll likely be vaccinated six months later than everyone else

Ever since this pandemic began, COVID-19 has cost 1,800 Canadian lives per month and at least $500 million per day. We’re so far behind the rest of the developed world that as of right now, it looks like we won’t achieve mass vaccination until SIX months later than everyone in Europe and the United States.

Canada clears Johnson & Johnson vaccine, first to approve 4

"Canada is getting a fourth vaccine to prevent COVID-19 as the country's health regulator has cleared a Johnson & Johnson shot that works with just one dose instead of two, officials said Friday.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Canada has an agreement with Johnson & Johnson for 10 million doses between now and September. It was not immediately clear when Canada would get its first shipment."

From the CTV of all sources?

Mistakes were made, many of them, as 1st year of COVID-19 under Trudeau management ends

Mistakes were made. Many of them. Some emergency relief measures worked, procurement orders were placed but unreliably delivered while delays in implementing anti-viral medical protocols turned deadly.
