  • Three military contingents of medical workers are now in Ontario or on their way to support overwhelmed hospital staffs, says the Canadian department of Defence in a statement.
  • Ontarians are dealing with a pandemic surge in cases including numerous new VOCs says chief public health officer of Canada, Dr. Theresa Tam. (Watch video below.)
  • The team-Canada Canadian support frontliners come from across Canada as part of a newly inspired team-Canada approach, says Public Safety Minister Blair.
  • Medical supplies are on their way to India and team-Canada through the Canadian Red cross is sending $10M to the India Red Cross immediately, according to the Canadian Prime Minister.

“We know that we need to be there for our friends. And indeed, we need to be there for everyone around the world because we don’t get through this pandemic anywhere until we get through it everywhere,” Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Wednesday.

  • Dozens of military medical workers are already in Nova Scotia helping with vaccinations in the Halifax/Dartmouth areas. They also are from across Canada, says the Canadian Prime Minister during a presser.

Heartbreaking news is a jolting call to action for team-Canada

The number of pandemic child-deaths in Canada is increasing notes Justin Trudeau. Young Canadians are contracting the SARS-CoV-2 virus; require hospitalization; and many are even dying according to the Canadian Public Health department.

Said Prime Minister Trudeau this week, “as a father I know there are no words for the parents’ grief”.

“How can anyone possibly say goodbye to a child in this manner,” said Michele Francis in a Signal video call, with fist to heart, from the Amazon Basin in Venezuela where the Canadian nurse practitioner manages three clinics and a small hospital for the Canada-based RINJ Foundation.

“The losses are staggering around the world and Canada has not been spared,” said Rose Catalano, a Canadian director of the global women’s group, RINJ Women.

“The numbers of deaths reported in Canada are much less than the actual excess deaths in Canada, which are staggering, like everywhere else in the world,” says biostatistician Fred Harris from the Civil Society Solidarity Team Against COVID-19.

But despite intense SARS2-anxiety, a team Canada approach is inspired by people like Allison and Andrew Furey. Andrew is Newfoundland/Labrador’s premiere.

Both Premiere Furey and his partner, Allison, seen below at the far right of the photo, are medical practitioners.

Allison Furey is now in Ontario with eight other Newfoundland practitioners helping Ontario medical workers cope with a serious surge in cases of COVID-19, according to the Premier’s office.

Another contingent of medical workers from Premier Furey’s team-Canada effort are preparing for departure via Canadian Forces C-130 transports, says the Canadian Department of National Defence.

Canada’s Federal Public Safety Minister, William Blair, a former Toronto police Chief, said Thursday that his department has identified 62 health workers from departments across Canada as potential team-Canada volunteers to head into Ontario to relieve over-worked frontliners in that province.

Meanwhile, the Department of National Defence is sending nine intensive care nurses and three multipurpose medical assistance teams to Ontario province, said Minister Blair.
