Will this be happening I wonder.Absolutely, I'll wear it. If everyone that want to be vaccinated, is so, by Sept 30/21. I'll happily admit I miscalculated.
As to promises. I don't much pay attention to the little stuff that really only affect the daily administrative items. I'm talking about things like the promise he made in 2010 when he said, "No way, I will never confiscate guns from Canadians", or words to that effect. Then we come to today.
Will this be happening?Give them credit? I guess so, but I'd consider it the same boat as giving someone a medal for doing their job (after they royally shit the bed in the first place, tried to hide information about it then tried to hide the work they did afterwards..).
I love that people said that Canada couldn't make the September deadline, saying that Canada messed up procurement and would never make that deadline.
Now that the schedule has been pushed up to early July, people are saying they wont meet that deadline. And I'm laughing, because as a country that doesn't produce any vaccines we are 3rd on the G20, ahead of the major countries of Europe, getting the top tier of vaccines in Pfizer and Moderna, and not junk like Sinovac and Sputnik (if you think AZ sucks) all while not making a single vaccine.
This is on par with having the 4th biggest air force and 5th biggest navy at the end of WW2, a great performance by a middle power.
I wonder whether that will be "curbside delivery."
So lets see some countries ahead of Canada.So the first thing I google from CTV news dated April 14th.....
"On a global scale, Canada ranks in the top 40 for the percentage of the population that has received their first dose, and that’s not so bad, says one expert.
I think we can agree that the September deadline will be more than met, and the only question is whether the deliveries by July match up to what I said, and so far, it looks like they will.I wonder whether that will be "curbside delivery."
You may be, or you may face it yourself. Trolling like this does not enhance your argument, or make anything that you have stated a certainty. When the time comes, bray away.
So how did these small population (influence) countries get in line ahead of Canada to secure vaccines? Perhaps their governments were more pro-active?So lets see some countries ahead of Canada.
Gibraltar and Falkland Islands(Small populations, Brits vaccinating them)
Israel(Acted as big pharma guinea pigs)
Seychelles (Small population)
UAE( Guinea pig for Sinovac)
Cayman Islands (Small Population)
Isle of Man(Small Population)
Chile(Sinovac, amongst the highest transmission rates of covid in the world)
Turks and Caicos (Small Population)
Bhutan (Small Population)
United Kingdom (Domestic Production)
Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha (Small Population)
Malta (Small Population)
United States (Domestic Production)
Guernsey (Small Population)
San Marino(Small Population)
Hungary (Sputnik and Sinovac vaccines, still high death rates)
Serbia (Sputnik and Sinovac vaccines)
Anguilla (Small Population)
Uruguay(dont know their story)
Faroe Islands(Small Population)
Singapore (1M Pop)
Iceland (Small Population)
Antigua and Barbuda(Small Population)
Northern Cyprus(Small Population)
Austria (just ahead)
Denmark( Small Population, and just ahead)
Estonia( Small Population, and just ahead)
Dominica( Small Population, and just ahead)
Andorra( Small Population, and just ahead)
Or they bought 20k and thats all they needed, and at the same time Canada was getting 300k, 400k a week and barely making a dent?So how did these small population (influence) countries get in line ahead of Canada to secure vaccines? Perhaps their governments were more pro-active?
So give the Feds new kudos because they’ve changed the narrative from “vaccinated by September” to “first shot by July”, yet you want Ontario to completely clear doses given to them within a day or two?
OK. Should they have requested 3-4 M a week, or as many as manufacturers could provide? Getting caught out for not being prepared is no excuse for not being prepared.Or they bought 20k and thats all they needed, and at the same time Canada was getting 300k, 400k a week and barely making a dent?
I want Ontario to fully clear the doses given to them by the next time they get a federal top up.So give the Feds new kudos because they’ve changed the narrative from “vaccinated by September” to “first shot by July”, yet you want Ontario to completely clear doses given to them within a day or two?
Will you give credit to the fed if they do?I don’t think Canadians will be properly (fully, ie. both shots for Pfizer, Moderna and A-Z) vaccinated before September, per the original promise by the Federal Government.
30,750,000 is the approximate adult population of Canada, and Canada is to have 44 million vaccines by July.Set up a roadside stand to serve crow all you like, Altair, but no one need consume any crow until ALL Canadian adults who want to be, are FULLY vaccinated BEFORE September, as promised originally by Trudeau.
Okay, lets put it this way.OK. Should they have requested 3-4 M a week, or as many as manufacturers could provide? Getting caught out for not being prepared is no excuse for not being prepared.
