Government Logic

In order to slow down the spread of COVID-19 the Government of Canada has introduced measures restricting travel, including a manadatory 14-day home quarantine for those entering the country. The civil rights violations are before the courts, as many feel government has overstepped its authority. I’m supportive of necessary measures to preserve public health during […]

Are You Surpised?

I should be outraged, but I am not. This is the sort of political hypocrisy I have come to expect from this Prime Minister. Heaven forbid he should even try and walk his talk. Rules are for lesser mortals, not for him. Justin Trudeau is going to attend the G7 Summit starting Friday in Cornwall, […]

It’s A Secret!

The last thing they want is for the people to know why they made the decision. Because it probably wasn’t “science-based” at all. The government of Canada has been taken to court over its imposition of mandatory hotel quarantine on some travelers to Canada. Those arriving by air have to pay for a three-day hotel […]

Smile, It Is Monday!

Sitting at home in quarantine, all days seem pretty much the same to me, though I know for many people today is the start of a work week. So I thought I’d offer a few reasons to smile. The biggest joke of course is Canada’s government, which the Prime Minister insists believes in science in […]

Behind Bars

Justin Trudeau is holding me prisoner. I am not alone, he has had thousands of other Canadians locked up without charges, without trial, without conviction. That this “quarantine hotel” is somewhat comfortable does not mitigate the fact this is essentially an internment camp. There is no public health reason for my being here. The government […]

You Be The Judge

Did the Canadian government lie to the people when quarantine hotels were introduced? They wouldn’t do that, would they? Back in January, when it was made mandatory for returning air travelers to stay in a quarantine hotel, the government said there would be exceptions. The rules were made public, and anyone who felt they qualified […]

Experts and Government

Canada has something called the “COVID-19 Testing and Screening Expert Advisory Panel.” These are the experts from which the federal government gets its advice on how to handle the pandemic.  The Prime Minister has repeatedly stated that his government follows the science in these matters, in order to protect Canadians. Unless, of course, it doesn’t […]

The Sins of the Father

Canada is complicated, though most of the world probably doesn’t see that. Our politics is never simple, and decisons made one year can reverberate for generations. Is it like that where you live? Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has a new political problem, thanks in large part to his father, who was Prime Minister from […]

Not Your Ordinary Denial

Of course they believe in climate change – most of them anyway. They aren’t stupid. But they are upset. They decided to make a point. Last weekend, delegates to the Conservative Party of Canada policy convention defeated a motion that acknowledged climate change as real. It was embarrassing for leader Erin O’Toole, who has been […]

Quacking Like A Duck

“Stephen Harper used prorogation to avoid difficult political circumstances. We will not” – Justin Trudeau, 2015 So much for promises. Again. The funny thing is, Canada’s Prime Minister has good reason to prorogue (reset) Parliament. A new plan for the COVID-19 era makes sense. It’s the timing that makes it look so bad. He appears […]
