Canada is scrambling to deal with a punishing third wave of the pandemic as several provinces have broken records for new daily cases of Covid-19 and hospital and ICU admissions.
"Canada continues to face an incredibly serious situation with this third wave, cases are rising rapidly in many cases, in many places, numbers are higher than they have ever been before and many hospitals are stretched way too thin," said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said during a press conference Friday in Ottawa.
He said the situation was particularly grave in Ontario, with Toronto now seeing records shattered and hospital beds filling up.
Ontario broke more pandemic records Friday for daily cases, hospitalizations and intensive care admissions.

I knew that the liberals would eventually use something to become a dictatorshio.
You can’t play footsies with illiberalism without it becoming a norm.
Canada has had nmore than a year the train personnel and build facilities to deal with the China Virus.
It’s leaders are either nefarious or incompetent.
Either way, the Canadian people should be looking for their first chance to elect new leaders.
How can the world’s most advanced socialized health care system fail to vaccinate people? I thought Canadian health care was the finest in the world.
Third wave, fourth wave, or fifth wave?
New Wave or No Wave?
It’s still rock and roll to me
There much more liberty in Mexico than there is in Canada!
Mexico may be corrupt but as long as you bribe the right people, they'll let you do whatever you want. (as long as you do not piss somebody off)
Just like every other time these “cases are soaring, hospitals and ICUs are overwhelmed, they’re stacking the the dead like cordwood” fear porn stories come out. Total BS, where are the pictures? Where are the media crews stepping over bodies in the parking lots or worming their way through a gurney filled hospital hallway?
This whole COVID19 hoax has turned into a TV reality show. Idiotic people are just eating it up.
Especially when they're next door to the most advanced nation in the world and should have first pickings. Israel, a nation halfway around the world, managed to secure their vaccine supplies before Canada which shares a land border with USA? You gotta be kidding me.
Just out of curiosity how long do you think it takes to train doctors and ICU ruses let alone respiratory therapists?
I'd surmise they "elected" Trudeau, and clowns like Ford, just as we here "elected" Biden.
Elections are so old school.
They’ve done a horrible job of vaccinating.
UK has done much better.
Canada had as much time as any nation to ramp up their vaccination program. I’ve read it is a complete and utter failure in Canada.
Hot Punk, Cool Funk, even if it’s old junk...
How elections work in Canada is that the Federal Quebec party,known as Liberals, will do everything they can to protect Vancouver and the Golden Triangle, which is comprised of the area that has Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal as its vertices.
As long as the Federal Quebec party does that, they will not lose support no matter what they do. They could send a military and kill every Albertan without consequence and I don’t exaggerate by much on that.
I listen to Trunk Rock, rekirds I buy a garage sales etc...
I think this is happening in good part because of the previous lock downs and denial of early treatment/prevention. No chance for people to build up natural immunity or resistance.
That may be true. I was replying to a poster that said canada has had over a year to train personnel. I was just wondering how long he thinks it takes to train medical personnel
They are rationing their vaccine supply. Instead of 2 shots 4 weeks apart they are going with 2 shots 4 months apart. Not kidding. Someone in their health ministry said her post hoc analysis of the clinical trial data shows it works, and that the natural delay in the immune response makes it unnecessary to administer the second dose any sooner.
Who knows? She could be right. But she could also just be providing some cover for the politicians.
