  1. Yesterday there was over a million Covid cases in the US, that we know of. Each day the provinces test new record numbers of Covid cases and we hunker down waiting for the other shoe to fall: a rapid rise in admissions to the ICU’s. Only it hasn’t quite worked out that way. Hospitalizations have risen but the stays are shorter and almost everyone who gets Omicron, representing about 95% of Covid cases, recovers within a week. The ICU’s have lost some capacity but aren’t anywhere near full on average (Ontario with 1100 ICU beds has about 270 in use). The bigger issue causing us to “slow the spread” by putting students back online and adding restrictions is the fact that we’re testing so many people who we’d never know were positive without the tests, people who are asymptomatic or have mild symptoms. Stop testing these people and they’d be working. The health workers administering the useless tests could actually help highly symptomatic patients. The time is here to focus our health care on treating very sick people, and not just people sick from Covid. Let people live normal unmasked lives, seeing people, going out, travelling, and taking care of their many other needs. The vast majority of our vulnerable population is fully vaccinated and has access to boosters. Those who are more vulnerable can take extra precautions. Mask up if you want to. Many people have had Omicron and many more will get it. Eventually just about everyone will and the consequences for our young and vaccinated population are cold or flu-like. We’ll be fine. It’s time to declare Covid-19 endemic and end restrictions.

  3. It looks like there will be a large truckers convoy starting in BC and rolling through to Ottawa to oppose Trudeau's vile vaccine mandates for the trucking industry. We are in for a rough ride as as many as 40k trucks will come off the road because of sock boys stupidity. https://canada-unity.com/bearhug/

  5. The infringements on freedoms for the vast majority of Canadians are unprecedented in Canada. You’d have to look at Nazi occupied Europe for an analog. It was done also to Black slaves and in the resettlement of Indigenous. This business of requiring digital passports to enjoy basic freedoms, the state-mandated closure of businesses, restrictions on gatherings, and more is breathtaking in its overreach. It is totalitarianism.

  6. If anyone is honest, the riot on January 6th 2021 at the US Capital was very bad for the political class and liberating for half the nation. Should Trump have held that rally? Probably not. But does the nation think the 2020 election was rife with cheating? Yup...to this day irregularities are being uncovered. So Biden gets on TV and reaffirms the battle lines. For a POTUS who said he was gonna unite people...he's failed in magnificent fashion. The Libbies are terrified of Trump or anyone the Globalists can't buy. Anyone who opposes Chinese global dominance. Anyone who stands up to nonsense. "The Big Lie" is that the January 6th riot was an "insurrection" and that the 2020 election was on the up an' up. That election stunk like rotten fish and everyone knows it. Denial of that is both childish and purely political. Out of fear for either Trump...or another.

  7. Over the past couple years you've heard politicians from all over use the platform "Build Back Better". You've heard this platform from Boris Johnson in Britain, Sleepy Joe Biden in the United States, Trudeau in Canada, New Zealand, the United Nations and other places. What exactly are we building? A society where you cant leave your homes past 10pm like in Quebec? Where you can't sit in a restaurant without injecting a foreign substance into your arm or access public transit or hold a job. Seems like a marriage between government and corporations where if you don't go along with the flavor of the day whether it be the climate change hoax, BLM, face rags, etc. you can't stay employed. What's next? Losing ability to use banks if you don't pledge your allegiance to the wokesters?

  13. I have volunteered to meet the truckers in my city today. I also have 2 friends driving with the convoy - one from BC, one from AB. Here's what happened this weekend: The GoFundMe is over $3 million. Trudeau had GoFundMe freeze the account, claiming the money is going to fund terrorist activities. This is being fought. Highway cams have been turned off along the route, so the public can't follow it. CBC news articles claim the convoy is in protest of road conditions in Canada. You are being lied to. The convoy is leaving Edmonton today, it is 100 kms long. Truckers from the US are starting to come up now to join. Estimates 500,000 people, 50,000 trucks. Virtual media blackout on it, except for the lying reports by the CBC. Huge demonstrations all over the world this weekend, tens of thousands in Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, Toronto, etc. Again, virtual media blackout. Oh, and for some reason the weigh scales were open on the highways. On Sunday. Haha Trudeau running real scared.

  15. Interesting that in addition to Uttar Pradesh, the Mexican and El Salvadorian governments also provide FREE at-home covid care and prevention kits to their citizens. They contain (with a few variations) Vit.C, Vit.D, Zinc, acetaminophen (for pain), aspirin (for clotting) and Ivermectin and have written instructions for dosing. Kind of feel like we are the third world country now.

  16. The idea that there's much reporting. It's almost entirely entertainment and opinion and has been all along. It's definitely easier in small short doses. The endless use of cliche references to lefties is probably their most annoying habit. Mark Levin reminds me of a right-wing Howard Beale.

  21. https://globalnews.ca/news/8492260/annual-surtax-homes-housing-inequality-report/ Homes over $1M will be taxed now "to help stall price increases" because the gov't says that they want to make home ownership easier for new/young Canadians. This is just a bullshit tax which will be a drain on the middle class, but will only cost Trudeau's wealthy buddies a pittance. Almost every single home in BC from West Vancouver to Abbotsford will be affected by this tax, but investors, who tie up affordable housing which young families could be purchasing, won't pay a single cent. If the gov't really wants to make home ownership a possibility then they need to put a premium on second, third, fourth, fifth dwelling units, etc. The way that this tax is set up, I can have two $900K condos, side by side, and 600 condos all across the country worth $500K each, and the new tax won't cost me a single penny, ever. I'd have over $300M in real estate, I'd be earning rent from 600 working families, and I could use my income from those 600 homes to buy several new condos every month, which just puts upward pressure on the cost of those homes. Trudeau's idiot fanbase will be sucked in by this. All of his welfare toadies will lap it up, thinking that it's a legitimate tax to help them out, in reality it doesn't do a thing for entry-level buyers.

  22. The same thing is happening in universities. If you don’t accept radical left views you’re painted as a right-wing lunatic. Debate is treated as some kind of trauma triggering event. The fastest way to destroy people’s reputations and careers is to paint them as racist and/or misogynist. Our Prime Minister demonizes people he disagrees with this way too. It’s a sick and dangerous game, defamatory too. Inquisition anyone?

  23. Politicians of all stripes like to politicize everything and use it to their advantage, and covid is no exception. There was great resistance and pushback to possible alternative treatments and the most notable example was when Trump mentioned hydroxychloroquine as something to examine. I've read about doctors being censored on social media for saying hydroxychloroquine can be effective against covid. Ivermectin and Fluvoxamine may also be effective early treatments against covid according to many doctors. Could lives have been saved if these existing medications would have been used earlier? A potential game changer was dismissed because of the lefties intense hatred for Donald Trump? Joe Rogan: Dr. Pierre Kory Treated 200 Members of Congress With Ivermectin | Video | RealClearPolitics CNN lied about Ivermectin calling it horse de-wormer and not acknowledging that it's been widely used by humans. Ivermectin in COVID-19 - FLCCC | Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (covid19criticalcare.com) The Chinese communists were the first to weaponize covid against rivals but they are not the last to do so.

  24. Maybe instead of Trudeau spending a billion dollars on useless vaccine passport enforcement, he should be allocating that money to improve hospitals. I think he will go down in Canadian political history as the most damaging and power-grubbing PM we've ever had.

  26. Rogan has interviewed doctors and scientists from both sides of the vaccine/covid/restrictions debates. Something mainstream media is either reluctant to do or not allowed to do. Hearing both sides and being able to question both sides is how you "do" science. Which is why it's amusing to me that some of you solidly refuse to hear anything but the Big Pharma narrative and absolutely never question it. And then you accuse others, like Rogan, of "not following the science."

  29. I've actually given a ton of thought to this and to be perfectly honest I think a lot of the fault lies on what I'd say is "over-liberalization". I don't know how to explain it perfectly, but I think there's a lot to be said about how liberal governments have been ignorant/dismissive of more conservative viewpoints, specifically in rural/non-metro areas. I've lived in both over the years and it's like two different worlds sometimes just driving an hour away from Toronto. We can mock and ridicule a lot of the conspiracy nonsense that gets rambled about here, but there's a kernel of truth to some of the rage we're hearing. Things like excessive government bureaucracy (like the public sector's salaries rising faster than private, and their unions' power), over-reaching political correctness and public services that rural provincials pay for but don't have access to are all things that have contributed (I think) to a general sense of disenfranchisement. Cancel-culture and self-righteous outrage have (IMO) wildly overreached and gone well beyond keeping people safe and giving them fair opportunities. The conspiracy theorists aren't completely bullshitting us when they talk about the "woke mob" and how quickly and sometimes unfairly they'll judge and dismiss someone because they're not agreeing 100% with whatever the prevailing viewpoint of the day is. That doesn't excuse some of the stupider bullshit that some of them come up with, but when they see the "woke mob" overreact too many times, it's hardly surprising they grow resentful and mistrusting. The fact that such a sizeable part of Canada's population has convinced themselves that COVID is a conspiracy and that the vaccines are some sort of scheme is pretty damning commentary for how off-the-rails everything's been getting. For most of these folk, it's not even really about the vaccine. It's about being forced to do something that the government and media they can't trust is telling them to.

  30. DeSantis saves lives and you don't like it because Biden is killing Floridians by depriving them of their medicine and you would prefer nobody noticed because it casts shade on your ideology. What does that make you? A participant in evil, I think. Willing ignorance or pretending not to notice is no excuse.

  31. Britain figured out that no amount of vaccination or suspension of freedoms would eliminate Covid, which has become a manageable endemic illness within the framework of pre-pandemic freedoms. To maintain restrictions and mandates is to maintain a draconian suspension of rights that causes more problems than it solves. It means we will have a certain amount of illness and death. It means adding hospital capacity. We’ve seen much more death in the not too distant pre-pandemic past. Adding capacity to our hospitals is well within our grasp. Treatments are improving. Britain and Ireland made the right move. https://apple.news/AOo2QBnTjReGGfvz6Tp190A

  32. First, not my country, not my flag and not my constitution. But in answer to your question, after thorough analysis, I have concluded they may not have wanted to testify. By the way, you referred to your "democracy." I have been forcefully informed on American forums that the United States is definitely not a democracy. It is a Republic. I know, I know, but it has something to do with some traditional get together with wolves and sheep. The Democrat Underground banned me before I could ask them about it.

  33. We’re already almost universally vaccinated. We can’t vaccinate much further. Are we to live restricted lives in masks forever? We have to accept the constant presence of Omicron. Let people make their own risk assessments and take precautions as they see fit. No coercion necessary. It wouldn’t improve our situation.

Is it just stupidity or deliberate raising of tensions by pushing a patently failed ideological agenda, when other countries are removing restrictions? I can't be certain any longer here.

  47. Your worries about your family/friends don't concern anyone but yourself. They are not important to us. The fact is, you could not worry about them, and we wouldn't care. The fact you are scared for them isn't a prerogative on our rights. We should tell you, as a collectivity consisting of grown adults, to simply f*** off and get diapers/kleenexes for your tamtrum. If you want to live in a hole, do. I was vaccinated. You are vaccinated. Your family and friends are probably vaccinated. If the vaccine works, you don't impose it on other people, and you don't care if others don't have it. Don't pretend like you care about other people. You don't. You think your emotions and your scaredness are sufficient to limit other peoples rights. No they don't, you child.
