Public Safety Minister Bill Blair says the federal government will pitch in after Alberta asked for help with airlifting COVID-19 patients, ICU-registered nurses and respiratory therapists.
Alberta’s Municipal Affairs Minister Ric McIver formally requested federal aid in a letter to Blair Tuesday.
Alberta’s hospitals are struggling to keep pace with a devastating fourth wave of the pandemic. The province recorded 20,304 active cases on Wednesday — more than twice as many as any other province or territory.
Blair tweeted today that the federal government will answer Alberta’s call for help.
Blair said federal assistance could come in the form of Canadian Armed Forces’ medical resources
