Ontario's Vaccine Supply Was Called A 'Joke' & Trudeau Has Fired Back

Justin Trudeau has fired back at Doug Ford after the premier described Ontario’s vaccine supply as a “joke.”

Earlier this week, the Ontario leader blamed the federal government for failing to secure sufficient COVID-19 vaccines on time, causing doses to be distributed unevenly across the region.

He accused Trudeau’s government of "dropping the ball majorly" and said “We do not have enough vaccines from the federal government and it's a joke."

On Wednesday, the PM responded during an online Liberal fundraiser, saying that "one of the easiest things to do is to try and point fingers and deflect."

Trudeau also took a moment to “defend” Procurement Minister Anita Anand (who is in charge of securing vaccines for Canada) by saying she was doing an “incredible job.”

He said his government was “well beyond” the six million doses Canada’s premiers were promised by the end of March, noting that around 9.5 million doses would be in Canada by the end of this week.
