Today Trudeau announces efforts to produce 30,000 ventilators. Trump took this measure weeks ago.
My question is why won't the Federal Government give the medical supplies they have stockpiled to the various States? Who or what are they saving it for? It just makes no sense.
The president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, and other White House officials also said states should not depend on the medicines and medical equipment in the Strategic National Stockpile.
“It’s supposed to be our stockpile. It’s not supposed to be states’ stockpiles that they then use,” Kushner said at a White House briefing on Thursday.
If JT said they had a stockpile of medical equipment, but that they were going to keep it and told the provinces "go get your own", you'd be livid. But it's Trump, so ok?
They have. Tons of it. The question should be why doesn’t Canada have a stockpile? We have to place orders for stuff with American companies and then hope that we get it.
