‘All Together’: Party Leaders Encourage Canadians to Get Immunized


TORONTO – Five federal party leaders put their political differences aside to register a 1 minute video encourage all Canadians to get vaccinated.

The video was recorded just before the Anglophone leaders’ debate in Gatineau, Quebec. Thursday evening and broadcast Friday in both official languages. It starred Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh, Bloc Leader Yves-François Blanchet and Green Leader Annamie Paul.

“We are all in the same boat!” the leaders said in unison, standing six feet apart.

The video came after Singh sent a letter to his four political rivals last Saturday asking them to “put aside partisanship to stand together and record a message.”

“I ask you and all other party leaders to join me in telling Canadians that vaccines are safe, easy and necessary,” Singh wrote.

This video also comes at a time when vaccinations have leveled off as COVID-19 cases across the country continued to climb amid Wave Four and the Delta variant. As of Saturday, 77.6 percent of eligible Canadians had been fully immunized.
