Hypocrisy

I am sick and bloody tired of Justin Trudeau and his seemingly natural, ingrained but sickening hypocrisy. On Friday, he felt it necessary to comment on the violence that is tearing a major US city (Minneapolis) apart. But, don’t you think it’s a bit odd that he didn’t, at the same time, comment on some…… Continue reading Hypocrisy

One old person’s thoughts about caring for old people

I’m not shocked at what military medics found in some long term care facilities. Saddened, but not shocked. Anecdote: I was in a conversation, a few years ago, about PTSD.

My training prepared me…… Continue reading One old person’s thoughts about caring for old people

So, I saw, a few days ago, in a report in the Globe and Mail, that “The print media need extra sources of federal funding, as well as a new deal with foreign internet companies, to survive the economic shock brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the publisher of The Globe and Mail has told…… Continue reading Not a penny more

The demise of democracy

So, Justin Trudeau and Jagmeet Singh agreed that Parliament is optional. That’s YOUR Parliament that they decided that YOU don’t need. According to the Globe and Mail, (link above) “The Liberal government’s plan to extend the suspension of regular parliamentary sittings until September because of COVID-19 went ahead Tuesday with the support of the NDP.”…… Continue reading The demise of democracy

I don’t believe …

… that Justin Trudeau is an idiot who cannot manage to sit through a briefing. There are global leaders like that, but Mr Trudau is not amongst them. He can understand the points being made by senior officials, he can discuss, rationally, the policy options presented by his political advisors. He may not be the…… Continue reading I don’t believe …

Please (2)

Please, dear readers, understand what China is doing to Hong Kong, right now. As The Economist explains, Li Keqiang, the Chinese prime minister, told the rubber-stamp National People’s Congress that he is “establishing a “sound” legal system to ensure national security in Hong Kong, which has flourished in part because of its independent judiciary and…… Continue reading Please (2)
