The Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) candidate for the riding of Pontiac, Michel Gauthier, criticized Justin Trudeau’s government over the country’s vaccine supply.
“We all hope with all our hearts, regardless of political inclinations, that Canada can find a solution to its vaccine supply and that the provinces can undertake their massive vaccination campaign. The CISSSO only needs vaccines to put a date on the start of his campaign in the six vaccination centers spread over his territory. Every effort has been made to be ready,”said Mr. Gauthier.
Asked on the same subject by CHIP 101.9, Liberal MP for Pontiac, William Amos had a different version.
“Very good news that we announced on Friday. Canada announced that we will receive 84 million doses of Pfizer and Moderna by the end of September. We have negotiated an accelerated schedule for the Pfizer vaccine. . It also represents 2 million additional doses between April and June. We have no control over the amount of doses that we can receive week by week, but we will receive the amounts of doses that we have ordered per quarter”, believes William Amos.
“To reach the goal of vaccinating 70 to 75% of the population, by September, it would be necessary to administer approximately two million vaccines per week. But Canada received only 75,000 doses of Pfizer last week. And Ottawa expects to receive on average less than half a million doses per week over the next month "thinks Michel Gauthier.
