(Ottawa) After sending military reinforcements to Ontario, the federal government also assisted Nova Scotia by deploying troops there, and said it was ready to hand over Alberta as well.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau confirmed at a press conference on Tuesday that members of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), including nurses, have begun to be deployed to Ontario to carry out aid operations in the province.

Justin Trudeau said, “Our government asked Alberta what kind of support they might need to keep people safe and control the situation.”

The Prime Minister, who received the AstraZeneca vaccine last Friday along with his wife Sophie Gregoire, congratulated the people of his generation, “X”, who have rolled up their sleeves to receive an injection in recent times.
Canada is scheduled to receive approximately two million doses of the vaccine this week, including approximately 300,000 initial doses of the one-dose vaccine from Johnson & Johnson (Jensen). However, most of the dosage will come from Pfizer-BioNotech.
“We hope we are in the final stages of this epidemic,” Justin Trudeau dropped.
