Brihard said:First public mention I’ve seen of planned CAF involvement in vaccine distribution. Makes perfect sense to leverage CAF’s logistical capability.
Weinie said:I have an intimate connection to someone involved in this. We will bring a great deal to the table.
Brihard said:Yup. I have family reasonably high in the logistics world, I’ve got a sense of how unique CAF’s logistics capabilities are.
Brihard said:Between Rick Hillier helping Ontario, and CAF helping the feds with planned vaccine rollout, I can’t wait for the conspiracy nut jobs to go wild with this.

FSTO said:Its too bad the PMO didn't task CJOC to take control of the National response to the Covid crisis from the start or during the pause this summer.
The national response has been all over the place and if there was a time for an organization that has experience in planning an operation from soup to nuts this was the time. Then our health professionals could have dedicated all their time to fighting Covid and not worry as much about the logistic train required for testing, contact tracing, etc.
Brihard said:Healthcare, however, is a provincial mandate, constitutionally. No federal state of emergency has ever been declared. The provinces have asked for only limited assistance.
The handling of the pandemic has not ben bungled for lack of true expert knowledge. As some leaked recordings out of Alberta are showing, the issue is that the elected political leadership - those actually empowered by law to make decisions - are not bound to solely heed public health advice. They’ve considered many other things too. The military would not have changed that fact.
