As governments tip toe into prolonged “reopening plans,” a team of scientists and policy experts has gotten together to put together a real reopening plan, starting with the immediate lifting of all Covid restrictions. The Canada Science & Policy Committee to Exit the Pandemic has laid out a concrete roadmap governments in Canada could follow, noting that they’ve been blindly “following the science” while ignoring the policy implications of their pandemic response measures. Committee co-chair Irvin Studin joined True North’s Andrew Lawton to discuss the plan, and what needs to happen now to set it in motion.
