LILLEY: Trudeau’s new vaccination plant won’t help us
Justin Trudeau stood proudly in front of Rideau Cottage in Ottawa and made it sound like reinforcements were on the way to help defeat COVID-19. Canada, you see, is about to finally start making vaccines in this country again. “This is a major step forward to get vaccines made in Canada, for Canadians,” Trudeau said. Sounds good; it’s what I’ve been calling for. We should be making vaccines in Canada. The problem is that Trudeau’s plan doesn’t call for retooling an existing facility, the whole plan is to keep moving forward with a new plant for the National Research Council in Montreal.
