Vaccines, the government ready to change gears

EnglishItalianPortugueseSpanishGermanDutchFilipinoPolishChinese (Simplified)ArabicBengaliGreekTurkishKoreanJapanesePersianRomanian TORONTO – The federal government is poised to change gears on the vaccine front. The confirmation came yesterday from Justin Trudeau during a press conference in which the prime minister did not hide a cautious optimism about the latest developments in the vaccination campaign that is about to come to life in Canada. The first factor to consider – underlined by the Liberal leader – is the approval of the third vaccine in Canada, that of AstraZeneca, which has a significant acceleration in the roadmap drawn up by the government in recent months. Yesterday – added Trudeau – the first supply of the vaccine arrived in our country with about half a million doses, which will be immediately distributed to the province and territories. “In addition to this,” he continued, “we are waiting to have a response from Health Canada on another vaccine, the one produced by Johnson and Johnson.” The latter, which in the United States has been able to give the green light by the regulator, could represent the turning point in this problematic immunization campaign against Covid-19, as a difference of all the other approved vaccines in Canada – Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca – to be effective needs a single dose and does not require recall injection.

EXCLUSIVE Tcdsb and Minister Lecce in legal troubles

It was expected that Del Grande would fight back. An Application for Judicial Review (JR) between Michael Del Grande and the Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) has been filed in Divisional Court. Understandably, it took a while to materialize in its final version.

In its reading, it resembles a thin veil pulled back that reveals the governance rot beneath the surface that has been afflicting Catholic education boards and the TCDSB in particular. It also exposes the perverse – even illegal – meddling by Queen’s Park in areas arguably beyond its jurisdiction.Read More in Corriere Canadese >>>

Le scuole cattoliche possono fare il giro della vittoria

TORONTO – 25 febbraio 2021. La decisione della Corte Suprema del Canada (SOC) di giovedì sulla questione Theodore school nel Saskatchewan offre una panoramica dei diritti confessionali costituzionalmente garantiti e del primato della Costituzione sulla legislazione subordinata (inferiore).

Gli avvocati si affretteranno a “differenziare” le questioni in esame e le conseguenti implicazioni. È quello che sono addestrati a fare, proprio come i critici che “analizzano” frasi e opere letterarie. Sarebbe “un dato di fatto”; ci sono questioni ristrette e implicazioni più ampie in questione. Il SOC le avrebbe soppesate, prima di decidere di NON ascoltare un appello della provincia contro una precedente decisione della Corte d’appello del Saskatchewan (SCA) in materia di scuole cattoliche a Theodore (popolazione 323).
La SCA aveva ribaltato una decisione della Corte di grado inferiore nel 2017 che aveva deciso contro la Theodore Roman Catholic School Division (TRCSD).
