LILLEY: Canada gets extra doses but it ain’t due to Trudeau

DM

Over the next two weeks, Canada will receive an extra 1.5 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine thanks to the Americans deciding they don’t need it right now. This is on top of the 500,000 doses of the COVIDSHIELD version of AstraZeneca that we recently received from India after other countries rejected their shipments. While overall this is good news for Canada’s vaccine rollout, I’m again shaking my head over how we are getting the doses. The Trudeau government announced a deal to buy “up to 20 million doses” of the AstraZeneca vaccine yet we haven’t received a single dose due to that contract.
