Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister urges U.S. to send unused COVID-19 vaccines to Canada



Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister holds a news conference in Winnipeg to discuss COVID-19 vaccine supply. He is calling on U.S. President Joe Biden to allow that country’s surplus vaccine supply that is sitting in freezers to be sent to Canada. The premier’s news conference comes as tighter public-health restrictions aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19 take effect in the province. Manitoba has sent a request to the federal government to send health-care workers to help control its spike in COVID-19 cases. (May 22, 2021)
