    I think a minority government is best especially now during a pandemic. Neither Conservatives nor Liberals should be given a blank cheque by having a majority to do whatever they wish.

    But a liberal minority is a de facto majority given the masturbating dipper backing of every liberal knee jerk day dream.

  2. Contractor or guests next to me in a crowed cafe, I don’t want anyone around me who isn’t vaccinated. They’re almost certainly the same ones who won’t mask up or socially distance when appropriate.

    Since masks are required on public transit, I think proof of vaccination should be as well. All the FREEDOM hawks chest pounding and congratulating themselves should, quite frankly stay at home. You’re not welcome around an increasing percentage of the population.

  3. I can see an increase in business for establishments requiring both vaccines. I would certainly patronize such businesses, especially if means they remain open and not locked down.

    I’d prefer such a mandate on public transit since people are ignoring distancing and in many cases the legally required masks. Why aren’t drivers turning them off the bus when it’s the law in the city?

  4. Deflecting to government is one thing, and a sign of liberal weakness IMO. The fact is, WE are largely responsible for how WE make choices in handling the pandemic.

    As I posted earlier, I see a complete and utter lack of social distancing and prudent mask use in obvious situations and locations. When public transit REQUIRES masks by city law and people ignore it with drivers saying nothing, we invite continued spread - which is spiking again. Surprise.

    Government has provided the tools and recommendations. WE have to make responsible personal choices.

  5. I suspect further lockdowns are imminent. Numbers are spiking again as people virtually ignore social distancing and prudent mask use when appropriate for the safety of others.

    Places where masks are required such as public transit, sees it ignored by an increasing number of passengers, with drivers saying nothing. We’re going to get exactly what we deserve when I was just enjoying my morning swims again.

    I see another winter of Covid hell ahead and we only have ourselves to blame.

  6. I was filling out a survey for Edmonton Transit today and at the end they asked a couple questions. One of them was inquiring about my gender. Note the word “gender”, not lifestyle or hobby.

    What was funny is that there were SIX to choose from but even better, it said to “check all that apply”. 😂 I’m not kidding.

    We’re not going to make it are we?

  7. The numbers say the pandemic IS getting worse but the stubborn pretending to be “patriots” (🤣) seem to want their line in the sand drawn.

    That line is going to invite an increase in vaccine “passport” proof for admittance in a rapidly growing list of places. Frankly, people don’t want you around anyway if you’re so self centred so stay home and pound your chests in “freedom” shouting HAIL TO THE FREE to anyone who’ll listen.


  8. Blacks make up about 3% of the Canadian population (13.4% stateside) yet seem to be featured in nearly half the TV commercials I’m seeing, grossly over represented.

    What’s more, I’m startled by the sheer number of mixed race couples in TV commercials, as though it’s normal. This strikes me as pure indoctrination of young people and weaker adults - groups progressives normally manipulate.

    For real fun, check out the legislation Oregon passed yesterday setting up visible minorities for certain doom in the “everyone gets a trophy” mindset.


  9. I’m thinking this was bound to happen. I’m of the opinion we’ve thrown the doors open way too soon at our own peril so this was inevitable.

    If X percent of the public absolutely refuses the vaccine over some perceived “rights” issue in their head, then the majority will have to refuse them admission to private property.

    The health and safety of the public trumps rights. One doesn’t have the right to drink and drive or smoke in public. Consequently, one doesn’t have the right to put others at risk of exposure to an international pandemic. Simply exclude the unvaccinated from the party and keep them at home away from me. Voila. That was easy.

  10. I fully expect this will take off. Some small businesses and diners here are wanting paperwork proof.  I own in a luxury 55+ building where I’m by far the youngest. Seniors are terrified and don’t want unvaccinated people around them or out in public at all.

    How long before a major retail or fast food chain makes the move and when it happens, how many others will flock behind them doing the same overnight?

    I see this as THE issue of autumn.

  11. I suggest ANYTHING in ANY category of life that has a dime of public funds involved is public information and should be available at the drop of a hat to anyone who asks.

    I also believe anything shown by the CBC and APTN should have viewership ratings and numbers available immediately upon request. The party would be over quickly if such information were available and it certainly should be if a dime of public money is involved - which is the case.

    Seems like a frequently asked question:

    APTN does not receive government funding for operations but generates revenue through subscriber fees, advertising sales and strategic partnerships. Detailed information can be found in our latest Communiqué.

    Why the sea of government “arts” funding logos after every show? I just asked and when they don’t answer I suspect we know the score. If it’s all “out there” then a clear budget and source of public revenue contribution should be easy and quick to provide. I’m certainly not the only one asking politely.

    It seems every movie or sitcom filmed in or produced in Canada has the same sea of assorted government logos (usually POTawa, OntariOWE and PAYbec). I see none of this on US produced shows. Why?
