MP Pierre Poilievre had a lot of tough words for Prime Minister Trudeau on Friday regarding what he called Canada's failure to roll out the COVID-19 vaccine.

The tweet is simply captioned "What the hell was he thinking?"

Poilievre said in the House of Commons:

"As the new UK variant starts to spread, Canadians were looking for some reassurance from the Chief Public Health Officer, but this is what she said: 'For the next few months, we're not going to have a lot of people vaccinated. That's a fact.'"

"And she's right. We are now ranked 52nd. Fifty-one countries in the world are vaccinating quicker than us, many countries at six, seven and even 20 times the rate."

"What's the Prime Minister's plan now? Is he just going to lock us down forever?"

Darren Fisher, the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Health, took the question.

"We're taking a multi-layered approach to keep Canadians safe, working .... with the provinces and territories to protect our communities from outbreaks of new COVID-19 variants."

"As part of that work, as a matter of fact, Mme. Speaker, we've announced $53 million to create a 'variants of concern' strategy, which will increase our monitoring and surveillance of new COVID variants in Canada."

The floor was given back to Poilievre:

"The purchase of vaccines is the most important procurement since our government bought arms in the Second World War. Thousands of lives and tens of thousands of jobs depend on it."

"When the Prime Minister thought 'Who should I buy them from?' he looked around the world and he said 'I know, the country that's holding our people hostage.'"

"You can imagine the PRC Politburo filled with bureaucrats rolling around on the ground in gut-splitting laughter at this Prime Minister's naivete. Mme. Speaker, simple question: When he wasted 100 days in the PRC, what the hell was he thinking?"
