Are You a Canadian Health Worker Who Struggled at Home While Politicians Took Sunny Vacations? Send Us Your Stories.
We’re reporting the stories of Canadian health workers who have struggled and made personal sacrifices during the COVID-19 pandemic
Are you a frontline health worker who struggled through 2020 and made sacrifices over the holidays to keep your community safe from COVID-19?
A number of prominent Canadian politicians have been caught vacationing in sunny locations like Hawaii, St. Barts and Palm Springs in the middle of a deadly global pandemic.
In Ontario, Doug Ford’s finance minister recently resigned after taking a luxurious trip to the Caribbean while in Alberta, Jason Kenney has refused to take any action against his minister in charge of the vaccine roll-out sneaking away to Hawaii.
Since then, several more of Kenney’s MLAs have been caught vacationing outside the country at a time when millions of ordinary Canadians stayed home and made sacrifices over the holidays.
If you’re a frontline health worker, we want to hear your stories:
- What kind of hardships have you and your family personally dealt with as a result of the ongoing global pandemic ?
- What is something special you’ve personally been forced to give up in order to keep your community safe?
- What personal sacrifices did you and your families make this holiday season?
