Here is what's on the radar of our editors for the morning of Feb. What we are watching in Canada There is new guidance from Canada's national advisory committee on immunization that says adults from racialized communities disproportionately affected by the COVID pandemic should be prioritized for shots in the second stage of the vaccination campaign. Essential workers who can't do their jobs from home moved into the second stage, instead of focusing on health workers with lower-risk jobs, under the advice given Monday. The second stage is expected to start this spring after the provinces vaccinate all staff and residents at long-term care homes, adults aged 70 or older, front-line health workers and adults in Indigenous communities. The list of groups that should receive COVID vaccines in the second stage includes people between 60 and 69 years old, racialized adults from groups disproportionately affected by COVID, essential workers, first responders, caregivers and residents and staff of congregate living sittings including homeless shelters, prisons and migrant workers' quarters. The committee added a third stage to its immunization recommendations that includes people between 16 and 59 years old with underlying conditions, those who are between 50 and 59 years old with no underlying conditions, and health workers and essential workers who are didn't got shots in previous rounds. The new recommendations prioritize racialized adults from groups disproportionately affected by the pandemic ahead of some older non-racialized people.

Par le mois de mai, , une délégation du Conseil national des Femmes du Canada se rendait auprès avec M. Sydney Fisher, le ministre accabler de la section canadienne à l'Exposition de Paris, et le priait d'assurer aux femmes du Canada un bâtiment suffisant à cette exposition. C'est cette entrevue qui a déterminé la proclamation du présent volume. La délégation qu'en ma qualité d'alors de présidente du Conseil, j'eus l'honneur de présenter, avait à sa tête les deux vice-présidentes, lady Laurier et lady Thompson, alors comprenait des femmes de marque avec toutes les provinces de la Association.
