The Challenge for Canada
“We, like many other countries, thought we could buy our PPE from abroad, ultimately buy vaccines from abroad in a timely way. That just hasn’t been the case for either, and we’re suffering as a consequence… We need to think about all of the essential items on which we can’t rely on international markets for.”
