This past weekend, October 30-31, at the G20 Summit in Rome, Italy our new government stepped up by making a number of commitments to #EndCovidEverywhere and #LeaveNoOneBehind. Results Canada volunteers and staff have been vigorously advocating for this type of global leadership from Canada to ensure a rapid and equitable response and recovery from the pandemic.
Canada’s latest commitments include:
The new commitments are potential game-changers. With Canada’s SDRs we have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to be ambitious and share wealth with essentially no effect on Canada’s deficit or debt. With ACT-A we have the tools to beat the virus and infrastructure in place that reaches everyone. And with more manufacturing capacity around the world, we are staking steps to prevent the harmful hoarding of medical products like vaccines.
We can #EndCovidEverywhere.
What has been missing is the political will to make a global response to global problems a reality. We must stop the deadly divides and two-track pandemic, with different countries and populations experiencing dramatically different health, economic, and societal impacts. Which is why we commend Canada for stepping up at the G20 to #LeaveNoOneBehind. Today we celebrate and tomorrow we will continue the work to support bold leadership on the world stage.
