Delta COVID-19 variant spreading through Canada, raising reopening concerns

Since one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine isn’t enough protection against the Delta variant, which is more contagious and can make people sicker, urgency is growing to get more Canadians fully vaccinated.

Nearly 70 per cent of the population is half vaccinated, while less than 10 per cent have received both doses.
That has some provinces wary of reopening plans.

As Heather Yourex-West reports, Alberta is hoping to remove all restrictions in less than a month for the start of the Calgary Stampede.
