The big threat for Canada when it comes to the Ebola virus is the people coming in to this country from the affected areas. That’s according to Parry Sound-Muskoka MP Tony Clement during a recent Riding Park Report.
Clement also says the federal government is putting millions towards stopping the outbreak in West Africa.
There haven’t been any confirmed cases in Canada at this time and the risk of an Ebola outbreak in Canada is very. However, Clement says that doesn’t mean we ignore the possibility of it happening.
On a provincial level, Ontario has donated $3-million to help front line responders control the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, $2-million of which is going to the Red Cross. The provincial government is also asking you to help out and donate. You can donate by going to the Red Cross’ website.
