The chief executive of the fund that manages Canada Pension Plan investments has resigned after it was revealed that he decided to travel to the United Arab Emirates, where he arranged to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
This is bizarre on three levels.
- Why can't such people wait a few weeks or months for their free vaccine?
- With all his wealth and connections, he couldn't simply buy a couple of doses in Canada?
- The backlash against politicians and celebrities who pull these stunts is intense. Has this guy not been paying attention?
