Coronavirus: T-shirts with portraits of Canada’s top doctors on sale for charity

A Calgary business has released three limited edition T-shirts featuring some of Canada’s top doctors, who have become the faces of government responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Madame Premier has produced shirts featuring Alberta’s chief health officer Dr. Deena Hinshaw, B.C.’s chief health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry, and Canada’s chief health officer Dr. Theresa Tam.

Founder Sarah Elder-Chamanara says she got the idea after a local artist, Mandy Stobo, posted a portrait she drew of Hinshaw on Instagram.

Elder-Chamanara says she asked her to put it on a T-shirt and then create portraits of Henry and Tam.

Net proceeds will be going to charities in the doctors’ provinces.

The three health officers have become leaders the public turns to for reassurance and facts, she says, presented in a calm, professional manner.

“All three of them have been steadfast in their leadership and their medical capabilities and their ability to give the public confidence that the province and the federal government have a handle on things.”

She says the T-shirts align with Madame Premier’s core mission of supporting the increased inclusion of women and diversity in politics.
