CANADA SOLD ITS ABILITY TO MAKE A VACCINE

On November 25, 2020, Scott Moe spent half his press briefing complaining about Trudeau not having a lab in Canada to produce a vaccine for COVID-19. Just a little refresher for Scott Moe, it was actually his friends who sold off Connaught Laboratories.

These birds of a feather are stuck together on their schemes to sell off the public good for corporate profit. Now that it’s come back to bite us yet again, I feel it’s my duty to remind Saskatchewanians the truth.

Canada’s National Vaccine Lab, which produced vaccines for polio and smallpox, was transferred to private ownership in 1986 by Prime Minister Brian Mulroney. This had the full support of Saskatchewan Premier Grant Devine, whose own privatization scheme is much more memorable: Saskatchewan’s PotashCorp.

Premier Brad Wall, from whom Moe inherited his present title, was working for Devine at that time. Maybe that will twig Scott Moe’s memory?

The Saskatchewan Green Party remembers, and we’ll continue to hold this government to account and fight for a better province for us all.

We must once and for all stop the privatization of our most vital public services, and moving forward, invest in Saskatchewan and invest in Canada. It’s time for leadership.

— Naomi Hunter, Leader,
Saskatchewan Green Party.
