The ‘hope for the best’ approach still seems to be in place…
With mounting reports that restrictions on vaccine deliveries from both the EU and India could take place – due to those countries prioritizing their domestic vaccine rollouts – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was asked about whether Canada would see our shipments held back.
He struggled to give a clear answer.
Conservative Health Critic Michelle Rempel Garner asked Trudeau separately about both countries, and he strangely seemed almost unprepared for the questions, despite having known – or at least should have known – it would be asked about.
You can watch the exchange below:

Unfortunately, this apparent lack of preparation is nothing new.
We’ve seen the Trudeau government basically operate on a ‘hope for the best’ strategy throughout this crisis, starting back when they downplayed the risk and said border controls were racist.
While hoping for the best may be nice, a real government can’t operate that way, and must be prepared for contingencies and boost self-sufficiency, rather than put virtue-signalling ahead of the national interest.
