Same allotment. No?

A closer look at Canada's homegrown COVID-19 vaccine candidates

A big article these 2 quotes show the lack of support for our contributions
But Canada has also invested in some COVID-19 vaccines in development here, and there are more than half a dozen Canadian vaccine candidates registered with the World Health Organization (and at least a handful that are not). At least two of the Canadian vaccine candidates are already being tested on humans. The vaccines under development represent a wide range of technologies, from more traditional protein subunit vaccines to newer technologies such as replicating viral vector and DNA vaccines. The options, if approved, would include not just needles, but nasal spray and a vaccine that can be swallowed.

Dr. Volker Gerdts, director and CEO of the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization-International Vaccine Centre at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, argues that "it's very important … to be self-sufficient and have access to vaccines that are being produced here in Canada for Canadians."
The federal government recently invested $1 billion dollars in preorders for seven foreign vaccine candidates, even though there's no guarantee that any of them will ever make it through clinical trials to market.

But some Canadian vaccine developers have reported facing big hurdles in development, including not enough government support. Gerdts said lack of manufacturing capacity in Canada slowed efforts earlier this summer.

Michael Houghton, who is leading a vaccine development team at the University of Alberta, said lack of funding to manufacture vaccines for a clinical trial has set his team back. Providence Therapeutics, a Toronto-based company working on mRNA vaccines against COVID-19, had complained earlier in the year about a lack of government support for clinical trials. However, in October, it received federal funding for human testing. Some other teams, such as Halifax-based IMV and Edmonton-based Entos, have also announced they are getting federal government funding to proceed with clinical trials.

I think the U.S. should supply the world before their population. That should go over well .

Northern Ontario,
Biden is a career politician, an career politician will take a lifetime to reach the position that Trump reached right out of the gate in that horse race.
So the jealous politicians try their best to convince everyone with the help of the media that orange man bad...and the lemmings nod in approval!

If only. Trump is doing everything he can to over turn the results. A LOT of folks "believe" that Biden won in a fraudulent manner. (Facts and numbers and verifications don't have an impact on their "belief". Trump knows this , and this is what is spurring him on. Meanwhile he is total denial and behaving like a dictator who can't let go of power. Trump not only wants to continue......he wants absolute power. He is being obstructive to the transition (deliberately and with malice) and plans to make things miserable for Biden as long as Biden is in power. Meanwhile , the US has reached a quarter million deaths from the virus.....& what is Trump doing?? He is bunkerd in the white house, sending rage tweets by the dozens. and ordering his lawyers to find him a win.......in an election he LOST. He cannot face reality........and that is dysfunctional. (in all ways ). He is MIA when it comes to doing his job.

I thought it would be bad, if he lost.......but it is worse than I had anticipated.

Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal attorney, appeared in court yesterday for the first time in nearly three decades to argue on behalf of the Trump campaign. The campaign’s long-shot case seeks to stop the certification of Pennsylvania’s election, on ridiculously flimsy legal grounds. Among the highlights (or lowlights) of Giuliani’s day:
— He made arguments based on legal claims that the campaign had removed from their lawsuit over the weekend
— He appeared to not understand what a “strict scrutiny” standard of review meant (it’s a basic legal concept that any law student, much less a lawyer, should know)
— He also appeared to not understand what “opacity” meant, asking if it “means you can see” (it means the opposite)
— He opened his arguments by alleging “widespread nationwide voter fraud”, and then later reversed course and claimed that “this is not a fraud case”
This is the kind of shrewd lawyering the Trump campaign is reportedly paying Giuliani $20,000 a day for. This is why multiple attorneys and law firms have withdrawn from the Trump campaign’s legal challenges — there’s simply no evidence or legal argument to back up Trump’s baseless claims of widespread voter fraud.
But don’t be so quick to laugh at Giuliani’s ridiculous performance yesterday. Trump’s lawsuits don’t stand a chance of succeeding, but the distrust he’s sown in our electoral process will poison our democracy for years to come.

Here’s what happened when Rudolph Giuliani made his first appearance in federal court in nearly three decades​

Yes... I heard all about that embarrassing appearance. He is out of touch and was not adequately prepared. He is another casualty of Trump.but does not know it yet.

I saw an interview on TV last night in which one of his counterparts in the proceedings said he was living in his own reality, that he was basically a disaster.

#BREAKING: Fox News viewers were given a dose of legal reality on Sunday morning from constitutional law expert Laurence Tribe.
The Harvard law professor appeared on Fox News Sunday to discuss Donald Trump’s legal challenges to the results of the presidential election.
Tribe referenced the fact that Republican candidates did well in races for the Senate and the House of Representatives in states where they claim there has been fraud. “The Republicans themselves know that President Trump’s claims that Biden’s votes were fraudulent are without merit, because if those claims were true, then those Republicans too would have been elected fraudulently or mistakenly because they were the same ballots,” Tribe said.
Tribe also described Trump’s refusal to concede as “dangerous”.
“If we know that Trump is going to lose in the courts, and we do, why should we care? The reason is that he is undermining democracy because there are millions of people who will believe him even though there is nothing in his arguments and no evidence to back them,” he said.
The former solicitor general of the United States, Ken Starr, appeared on the show alongside Tribe. He said he is favour of the legal challenges. “Everyone has heard, if his or her ears are open, anecdotal evidence, not proof, that people who should not have received those ballots received them,” he said. Tribe countered that when the cases Starr referenced were tested in court “every one of them has been shown empty or been withdrawn.”

Can Trump actually stage a coup and stay in office for a second term?​

Actually no, he didn't.



Experts like Fauci who amended his projections based on updates about the virus. You and others forget this is a NOVEL virus - never been seen before - and no one knew what it'd do, how it'd act, etc. Those projected losses were just that, *projected*. If you don't know what that means, look it up. Thankfully their projections didn't end up being as bad, though it's still fukin' horrible.



Yeahno. He first left it up to the states to deal with it. He didn't negotiate anything; major manufacturers were calling HIM and states about orders but because he was fuking the dog and didn't believe and was a sulky little brat, he wouldn't allow extra $$ to the states to put those orders ahead.



Sure, which is DANGEROUS because not all the proper studies and reviews may hold the vaccine up as good to even use. And remember, Pfzer is NOT part of Warp Speed. Haven't heard about the other company. That said, because of uncertainty about a rushed vaccine, how many won't take it? Don't get me wrong, I hope to all the Gods that these two vaccines are viable and will have little to no side effects so they CAN be used. Too many are suffering with this BS and if we can do this, then awesome. But I know I certainly question such a quick response especially when other vaccines take years.



Yes he did, and see above. Science changes, data changes, things change, daily.



Yeah, it is amazing, and brings rise to questions too.



Much as I don't like the man, I think he did do a good job at least for a bit covering the virus.


Yeah, and I don't approve of that, except... that's a lie.

https://www.canada.ca/en/institutes...research--details-of-the-funded-projects.html


TORONTO -- A Quebec City biopharmaceutical company, which began clinical trials on humans on Monday for a plant-derived COVID-19 vaccine, is among at least five Canadian research groups deep in the hunt for a vaccine.

Didn't know Edmonton and Saskatchewan were in Quebec...

Should be an acceptable article for it's by CBC

Why Trump's Operation Warp Speed is credited with helping accelerate COVID-19 vaccine development


Operation Warp Speed, a Trump administration initiative to manufacture COVID-19 vaccines as fast as possible, should be lauded as a successful endeavour in what has otherwise been a poor effort to deal with the coronavirus, experts say.

"No doubt, Operation Warp Speed is a huge success," said Tinglong Dai, associate professor of Operations Management and Business Analytics at Johns Hopkins University Carey Business School. "You can like or hate the Trump administration, but no doubt, it's a huge success — unprecedented success."

Jesse Goodman, the former chief scientist of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, agreed that the U.S. government deserves credit for the high priority placed on Operation Warp Speed.

"This is a bright spot in the pandemic response. I mean, the rest of it has been dismal," said Goodman, who is also director of Georgetown University's Center on Medical Product Access, Safety and Stewardship.

During a virtual STAT Summit, Anthony Fauci, director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, also lauded Operation Warp Speed for being a "success — certainly in the arena of vaccines, it's been a success."

Launched in May, Operation Warp Speed (OWS) is a government initiated private/public $10 billion US program to help provide support to companies in the development, manufacturing and distribution of 300 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine, with initial doses ready by January 2021.

Pfizer, Moderna announce potential vaccines​

On Wednesday, pharmaceutical company Pfizer Inc. announced that new test results show its coronavirus vaccine is 95 per cent effective, is safe and also protects older people most at risk of dying.

Earlier this week, biotech firm Moderna Inc. also announced similar effectiveness of its own vaccine candidate.

The experts agree that Operation Warp Speed played a significant role in Moderna's development of a potential vaccine.

"Without OWS, there would be no Moderna vaccine. Period," Dai said.

Allison Winnike, president of the Texas-based Immunization Partnership, an organization providing advocacy and information about immunization initiatives, said that Moderna benefited tremendously from Operation Warp Speed, in part, by receiving close to $1 billion to support its vaccine development and clinical trials.

"That really got them to where they are today," she said.

As well, Operation Warp Speed signed an agreement with Moderna that the U.S. government promised to purchase 100 million doses once they were approved.

Also, Operation Warp Speed created the clinical trial network that helped get the Moderna trials completed, Goodman said.

If the situation was reversed and the Dem outgoing potus behaved like a lunatic (as Trum is behaving)........one can imagine the screaming from the reds. If the dems tried to overturn the results in a n election......again...... the Reds would be having hissy fits unbecoming to humanity.

Biden is handling all this lunacy with dignity, professionalism.& responsibly. Meanwhile Trump is not even doing his job.But he is listening to Rudy's conspiratorial theories that have no foundation inreality.

He will probably NEVER acknowledge that he LOST...........and his supporters reinforce his delusion.
His psyche is such that it cannot accept it. He never had the disposition for the job and still does not.
