Don Martin: Like the lockdown? Sleep better on a ventilator? Then refuse the vaccine


Having botched any pretense of containing the second COVID-19 wave with an effective blitz of testing, tracing and infection isolation, Canadian politicians are being given a shot at redemption. The smiling-face story of this terribly-sad year is the arrival of the Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine, which should be rolling out toward rolled-up sleeves across Canada in limited numbers next week. It’s what follows which will decide the electoral popularity of premiers and, even though he’s not responsible for the delivery of health care, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. While retired military generals are being set up as fall guys if the rollout derails, politicians will still wear the success or failure of the immunization operation.
