    “It’s the darkness before dawn. There’s really no question that the situation in Canada is very tough. And many, many people are suffering,” Singer, special advisor to the Director-General of the WHO, told The West Block‘s Mercedes Stephenson in an interview.

    “This pandemic generally is the worst global public health crisis in one hundred years. So…it is a period of difficulty, but the dawn is coming.”
