Fortin allegation, Palestinian solidarity movement, vaccine delivery – fr

TORONTO – Canada has now administered at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine to 53.9% of the country’s eligible population. Here’s what you need to know to start your day.

1. Allegation of Misconduct: Major-General. Dany Fortin, the public face of the vaccine rollout in Canada since November, faces a sexual misconduct complaint against him that dates back more than 30 years.

2. Airstrikes in Gaza: The IDF says heavy airstrikes on the Gaza Strip early Monday destroyed 15 kilometers of militant tunnels and the homes of nine Hamas commanders.

3. Administration of vaccines: The federal government says it expects around 4.5 million doses to arrive this week, thanks to scheduled deliveries from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna.

4. Quality control: According to the agency’s chief medical adviser, it could be weeks before Health Canada is certain that the first shipment of 300,000 doses of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine can be used due to the review of quality control in progress.

5. Health complications: Indigenous patients had higher rates of complications after surgery, were less likely to have life-saving procedures, and had longer wait times for kidney transplants, a new study found.

One more thing…

‘Cash back’: How much money does Canada owe indigenous peoples for the theft of their lands and what might restitution look like? A new report asked these and other questions in its view of Canada’s historic and continuing oppression of Indigenous peoples.
