Canada's stockpile of ventilators up from 500 to 27,000 after push to procure them

Canada's race to procure ventilators for COVID-19 patients in the early days of the pandemic had researchers, scientists, industry and a notable astrophysicist working "night and day"to design machines that could be quickly manufactured domestically. Various efforts included a Montreal-based competition that drew global competitors and a group of scientists and engineers involving Queen's University professor emeritus Art McDonald, co-winner of the 2015 Nobel Prize in physics. Public Services and Procurement Canada said the total cost of more than 27,000 ventilators Canada stockpiled was over 7 million, including .5 million for the Mechanical Ventilator Milano (MVM), designed by McDonald's group. "Without a doubt, I think (procurement) is part of any sort of readiness or preparedness infrastructure but without adequate staff it's not really useful and we need to emphasize that human resources component more and more," said Murthy, who is a also a clinical associate professor at the University of British Columbia. McDonald was working with a global group of scientists doing a large physics experiment involving a liquefied form of argon when they decided to harness their skills to design a cheap, easy-to-operate ventilator that uses a different type of gas -- oxygen.

Is live shopping the next big disruptor in Canadian retail?

The clip is part of a series, each with the same young woman modelling different items, which originated in a livestream broadcast—the weird re-emergence of appointment TV’s immensely popular shopping channel offerings, but projected out into the boundlessness of e-commerce. Geoffroy Robin, chief operating officer of Montreal-based Livescale Technologies, a six-year-old company that offers live shopping services to global brands like L’Oreal, says a rapidly growing number of vendors are embedding “live” into their own websites, many featuring pros with experience selling on live TV who can host “events,” in some cases 12 to 14 times a day. Service firms like Livescale, which offer live shopping services for big brands, scout for influencers, provide technical support and help vendors create “engagement,” such as polls, chat or other features. Robin urges retailers and vendors to experiment with this channel, and to try out a handful of live shopping events to see what sticks.
