Why this petition matters
It is unacceptable that Canadians are being vaccinated at a MUCH SLOWER RATE than the US, UK and many other countries*. Canada is a multicultural democracy with a publicly funded health care system.
Our Government’s failure to expeditiously procure, manufacture and deliver COVID vaccinations for Canadians is a global embarrassment and more importantly threatens to damage our social fabric and prosperity for generations.
We call on the Prime Minister, his Government and all Provincial Premiers, to speed up procuring, manufacturing and delivering COVID vaccines for Canadians. Vaccinating Canadians who want to be vaccinated should be the #1 focus of Government. This is not about political affiliation or partisanship. This is a Canadian crisis.
Common sense and credible media reports tell us that COVID lockdowns are having severe detrimental effects on Canadians, including our Seniors, but also Children, Young People, Women, and our BIPOC communities. Our social contract and future health and prosperity depends on Government acting speedily and effectively NOW.
The future of Canada is at stake, there is no more time to waste.#vacinatecanadanow
