Mr. Chair, I do look forward to an update very quickly as it is the end of April and workers' jobs hang in the balance.
Provinces' plans to ease health restrictions are dependent on their ability to dramatically ramp up testing. Private companies have already created rapid blood tests that can provide results in under 20 minutes. These tests have been approved for use in Europe, Asia and in the U.S., but in Canada, they're still “under review”.
Will the Prime Minister commit to fast-tracking the approval process so that provinces have access to the tests that they need?
