Trudeau pledges more health-care workers, rapid testing for pandemic-battered Ontario


Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he is working with provinces and territories to send more health-care workers to Ontario and boost rapid testing to shepherd Canada’s most populous province through a gruelling third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“First, we are mobilizing federal health-care workers from across government departments to deploy to the front lines in Ontario, in specifically the [Greater Toronto Area] where the situation is the most critical,” Trudeau said in a video posted to Twitter on Sunday afternoon.

“Second, Canadians across the country aren’t just watching the situation closely, they’re springing into action to help. There are provinces that have managed their health-care capacity for their own local situations and have the ability to lend a hand to others.”
