Thank you.
Throughout this year, the shadow pandemic has been a common point of concern and discussion. In my area, Peel Region, the police have seen an increase in the number of calls they get to respond to issues of domestic and gender-based violence over this pandemic.
Earlier the Prime Minister and you announced $50 million in support to organizations serving women and their families who are fleeing violence and later, this past fall, announced an additional $50 million fund.
Minister, can you update us on how much of the $100 million in COVID-19 relief funding has gone to organizations? How many organizations will receive it?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I agree with Don, Mr. Chair, that we should be mindful of the fact that we are already in the middle of the study on the topic of vaccines. There are other important topics that the committee wants to study, as Don said, but this is what we were saying during the last 106(4), in a polite way. We were cognizant of these consequences.
On Luc's motion, I agree that we want a full two hours, and there may be more witnesses we also want to hear from on this subject. One additional hour on Monday does not sound sufficient, as we want to hear from everyone.
Also, as MP Luc Thériault said, we want to hear proper translation. Technical matters should be clear so that we can understand. We also want to hear from Health Canada, which approves the vaccines. There are many other experts, and we need to make sure that proper headsets are available for these witnesses to allow for proper translation.
Thank you, Mr. Chair.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
As I said before, I am curious as to why the members who submitted the motion did not include any representatives from Health Canada who approve the vaccines. I think we all want to listen to Health Canada. It seems like there are questions about the authorization of the vaccines. It's important that Health Canada be in there.
I would like to amend the motion by requesting that Dr. Supriya Sharma, the chief medical adviser, and Dr. Marc Berthiaume, the director of the bureau of medical sciences, be invited to present in this meeting and that they be given the same time as the NACI experts.
Also, I think we should hear from some outside experts as well. I have a list that should be considered. The list includes Dr. Cora from the University of Calgary; Dr. Andrew Morris, medical director, antimicrobial stewardship program; Caroline Colijin, mathematician and modeller at Simon Fraser University; Horacio Bach; Dr. Hassan Masri, ICU physician and associate professor at the University of Saskatchewan; Dr. Joss Reimer, MB vaccine task force; Dr. Isaac Bogoch, Ontario vaccine task force; Dr. Danuta Skowronski, epidemiology lead on influenza; and Dr. Krishana Sankar, program manager of COVID-19 Resources Canada.
Thank you, Mr. Chair.

Thank you to all of the witnesses for joining us today—the same day we received the news of the approval of the AstraZeneca vaccine by Health Canada.
Mr. Chair, I want to begin my round of questioning with a few brief questions for our witnesses to set the record straight for Canadians watching.
Mr. Stewart, most of the GTA is presently under a stay-at-home order. Is it correct to say that the Province of Ontario, not the federal government, imposed it based on consultations with regional and provincial public health experts?

Thank you.
General Fortin, is it correct to say that the federal government distributes vaccines to provinces per capita and that the provinces are responsible for local vaccine distribution, including through online booking portals?

Thank you.
General Fortin, how many vaccine doses have been distributed to the Province of Ontario? How many have been administered by the province? How many are presently in the fridges?

Thank you, General Fortin.
Can I ask my other questions? He can come back to that question.
General Fortin, the AstraZeneca vaccine was approved this morning. This week, Canada received the largest number of doses of the Moderna and the Pfizer vaccines so far.
Are you confident that provinces will be able to increase their delivery capacity to keep up to the supply coming in? Do you have any concerns? How are you preparing for the influx of vaccines?

Would you be able to comment on the vaccination work in remote northern and indigenous communities in Canada?
