Dr. Tam, Dr. Njoo and Health Minister Patty Hajdu have arrived to announce the latest national modelling data. We reported on the projected case count and deaths last night but I’ll add some of the other data in the thread below #cdnpoli
Cases in the 80+ range have surpassed the 20-39 category for the first since the start of the pandemic, which is not good.

Cases in all age groups are up, so this is not just a young adult problem like it was in the summer #cdnpoli
Provinces outside of Atlantic Canada are all doing very poorly but Manitoba is growing at a staggering rate. Alberta is not far behind.

The long term forecast for these provinces is not good either #cdnpoli
This chart shows other western countries who have seen a large second wave, and how that has impacted their hospital rates. We’re well behind those other countries and hopefully we can stay that way #cdnpoli
Our national 7 day rolling positivity rate is above 6%. Dr. Tam has said previously that we want to see that number below 1% #cdnpoli
After weeks of increase case activity, deaths are now on the rise. Dr. Tam just noted that a few people in their 30’s have died recently from Covid. #cdnpoli
If we stay on the track we’re on with a projection of 20k cases a day by Dec, Dr. Tam says it would be “really difficult” for the health care system to cope, adding that even right now, the health care system in certain cities is already strained #cdnpoli
Dr. Tam says that sometimes “mandatory rules help everyone” when it comes to Covid and now that we’re seeing a more uniform Covid experience across many provinces now, that will likely lead to more uniform Covid rules across in each province #cdnpoli
I pushed Hajdu on this twice and she would not answer. AB, ON, QC and SK have all said we’re getting 4 M Pfizer vaccine and 2 M Moderna vaccines by March. Doug Ford said they got this info from federal health officials but Hajdu wont confirm this #cdnpoli

Dr. Tam says that she thinks we’re on the grey trajectory now, so 20k cases a day by December unless we change things up #cdnpoli

NEW – CTV News has obtained a copy the latest national covid modelling, and it’s not good news

- If we increase our contacts, 60K covid cases per day by Dec
- If we maintain our contacts, 20k+ covid cases a day by Dec
- If we decrease our contacts, 5K covid cases a day by Dec
Some grim short term projections from PHAC as well.

By November 30th, there will be between 366K – 378K covid cases and between 11,970 – 12,120 covid deaths #cdnpoli
Dr. Tam and Dr. Njoo will have a press conference tomorrow at 9 am to present these numbers and take questions from journalists #cdnpoli

On @CTV_PowerPlay, @EvanLSolomon asked Health Parl Sec Darren Fisher 3 times if the ON Health Minister was correct in saying Canada will get 4 M Pfizer and 2 M Moderna vaccine by March.

Fisher wouldn't give numbers but said “I am not aware of where she got her numbers”
Alberta Chief Medical Officer Deena Hinshaw just said AB is anticipating they'll receive aprox 465K Pfizer vaccines doses and aprox 221K Moderna doses in Jan-March

So now AB and ON are saying on the record on this issue, but the feds won't confirm the numbers #cdnpoli #abpoli
Earlier today, @cmaconthehill asked Patty Hajdu to confirm if the Ontario Health Minister was correct in saying Canada was going to get 4 M Pfizer and 2 M Moderna vaccines by Jan-March.

She didn't answer the question #cdnpoli

WE Charity co-founders Marc and Craig Kielburger have just released a bunch of documents to the Finance Committee about the Canada Student Service Grant. Here is what we've learned so far #cdnpoli
Sophie Trudeau attended 8 WE events between 2012-2020 and her expenses, which were hotels, car service, and flights, totaled $23,940.76. She also got $240 in gifts.

This is on top of a $1500 on time speaking fee she got for one of the events #cdnpoli
When Bill Morneau paid WE $41K the day before his testimony to discuss his involvement in the CSSG, he wasn't given a physical invoice. WE just estimated what the cost of the trips were, and told his staff #cdnpoli

I’m at a cottage with friends this week but @atRachelGilmore and I are still watching what happens with CPC leadership race. In talking with a number of Conservatives over the past week, here’s some of the most interesting info I’ve heard about the race #cdnpoli
Mackay started off as the front runner but outside of his team, no one seems confident he will win tonight. Multiple conservatives have told me the Mackay team is over estimating his support. Not saying Mackay won’t win, but the original narrative of a coronation faded fast.
One insider I talked with has seen the internal polls from all four candidates. Two of the camps polling shows the exact same numbers, both pointing to a third ballot O’Toole win. #cdnpoli

"I made a mistake in not recusing myself immediately given my families history and I'm sincerely sorry" - PM Trudeau, on WE Charity being involved in the Canada Student Service Grant #cdnpoli
"The mistake that we made was on me and I take responsibility for it" - PMJT, who reiterates that it was the public service that recommended that WE originally administer the Canada Student Service Grant #cdnpoli

A development in the House of Commons. The bells foyer are ringing, which means members should return to the House. Let’s see what this is all about. #cdnpoli #covid19
If there was any urgency to rush people back in, you don’t feel it from the HoC gallery. Minister Champagne just got out of his seat and told a CPC MP that he was going to get a slice of pizza and that he’d be back. There are currently no Liberal MP’s in the house #cdnpoli
The deputy Speaker Bruce Stanton and Government House Leader Pablo Rodriguez just went in the speakers chambers to have a discussion, just as Transport Minister Marc Garneau showed up for the Liberals. #cdnpoli #covid19
