The members of Indian diaspora in Canada on Sunday organised a “Tiranga and Maple Car Rally" to celebrate the strengthening of ties between Canada and India. Hundreds of cars participated in the rally.
“The Covid-19 Pandemic has taken millions of lives around the globe. In times of such crisis, Prime Minister Trudeau and Modi have come together to save millions of lives by approving and supplying millions of vaccines," the Indo-Canadian group said in a statement. The group also thanked India for practicing the ancient Vedic value of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’, meaning ‘the world is one family’.
“Supplying vaccines to Canada reaffirms this value and the friendship shared by the two great democracies. We also recognize India’s efforts of meeting a global demand by sharing it’s vaccine supply with over 40 countries from around the world," the group said.
The group also extended its gratitude to the Trudeau-led Canadian government for their timely decision to secure Covid 19 vaccines from India. India has promised an immediate supply of 500,000 vaccines in this coming week followed by another supply of 2 million vaccine doses in the coming months. The action will save the lives of countless Canadians.
Canada will receive first 500,000 doses of Covid-19 vaccine manufactured by the Pune-based Serum Institute of India on March 3. “I want to express my appreciation for the support and partnership of the Indian government in fighting Covid-19, in helping secure these does for Canadians," Trudeau had said earlier.
India will send across two million doses to Canada till by mid-May.
