The Liberal government was too slow to close the border to flights from hot spots (they only did so after calls from our Leader) and too slow to procure vaccines for Canadians who want them (less than 2.5% are fully vaccinated; 21.8% have received only one dose). Yet the Liberals refuse to admit any of their mistakes. They have repeatedly tried to shift the blame to the provinces and past governments, and continue to repeat vague talking points. With health officials tying vaccination rates to ending lockdowns, the Liberals’ failures mean more lockdowns, isolation, and substance abuse. While vaccinated Americans are going to hockey games, visiting family, and hosting in-person awards shows, we can’t even travel within our own province. It’s time for real leadership in Ottawa.
