Tories’ O’Toole says he disagrees with anti-vaccine petition, trusts the science


Opposition political leaders blasted the Liberal government for its piecemeal approach to a plan to get COVID-19 vaccines to Canadians, saying it risks people’s confidence in the science and their ability to have hope for their own futures. Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole blamed people’s fear of the safety of the vaccine — embodied in a petition sponsored by one of his own MPs — on the Liberals’ approach, while Green party Leader Annamie Paul said it ought to be public health leaders, not politicians, providing what details exist. NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh acknowledged provincial premiers also share some of the blame, given their control over health care, but the federal Liberal government has a responsibility to provide an overarching plan.
