Coronavirus: Trudeau announces $214M investment for made-in-Canada vaccine development | FULL

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Friday that the federal government will be investing $214 million for made-in-Canada vaccines, including $173 million to Medicago to advance their vaccine candidate and create a production facility in Quebec City.

Trudeau was joined by Procurement Minister Anita Anand, chief public health officer Dr. Theresa Tam and deputy chief public health officer Dr. Howard Njoo, alongside other ministers.

As of Friday, Canada has a total of 209,184 COVID-19 cases and 9,862 deaths. Nearly 23,500 people have recovered from the virus. Tam said Canada is testing nearly 75,000 people daily.

Following Thursday night’s U.S. Presidential debate, Trudeau said Canada is hoping everything runs smoothly during the election and added that whoever is president in the years to come, they will continue to stand up for Canadian interests.

When asked about why Ontario received more rapid tests than Quebec, where the COVID-19 situation is worse, Tam briefly explained how distribution system works, but also promised to look further into the situation.

    COVID-19

    C = 100 (Roman Numerals)
    O = 79 (ascii)
    V = 5 (Roman Numerals)
    I = 1 (Roman Numerals)
    D = 500 (Roman Numerals)

    Total = 685
    685 – 19 = 666

    CORONA

    C = 3
    O = 15
    R = 18
    O = 15
    N = 14
    A = 1

    Total = 66 + the 6 letters that make up corona, 666

    Trudeau certainly loves throwing our money out the window, he must have waisted a trillion dollars this year alone. Trudeau needs to be stopped before we end up like Venezuela of the North, I thought he spent Billions on Covid already and that was in other countries not just in Canada.

    Viruses constantly evolve and you can never make an effective vaccine. This is crime. Treason.

    Here’s an idea, how about getting the money to pay for these vaccines from the WE group instead of tax payers money? They certainly seem to have the funds for it, as we saw through the generous payments made to the Crime Minister’s family. I’m sure they wouldn’t mind extending that generosity to all Canadians by paying for the vaccine.

    Vaccines are not about making you healthy. It alters your DNA and it slowly make you sick. You should question everything.

    Who owns the media? Does the government owns the media? It is very bias and I don't believe them.

    Pharma companies are not liable for their vaccines injury or death. So really they don't need to care what they put in the vaccine. And how it affect people. Even people who owns a home need to buy insurance for their house just in case someone slip and fall on their property. The home owner is liable for injury that happens on their property.
