COVID-19: Canada Responds

NDP Leader on Line 5 Pipeline, AstraZeneca Vaccine Concerns

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh speaks with reporters on Parliament Hill following the weekly meeting of his party’s caucus. He faces questions about his position opposing the shutdown of Enbridge’s line 5 pipeline, and about the decision of some provinces to pause using the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine as first doses. Alberta and Saskatchewan are stopping first doses due to supply concerns, while Ontario is citing the risk of rare blood clots linked to the vaccine for its pause. (May 12, 2021) (no interpretation)
