  2. But Covid only kills old people ...

    Broadway actor Nick Cordero, known for his roles in “Rock of Ages,” “Waitress,” “Bullets Over Broadway” and “A Bronx Tale The Musical,” died on Sunday after battling complications from COVID-19 for several months. He was 41.

  4. “At this point in the crisis, the worst you can say about the Canadian response is that it has been basically competent—what you would expect from a country with a functioning political and health care system. The United States, by contrast, hasn’t cleared this lowest of bars.” — Zack Beauchamp

      Lol @ anyone who takes China’s numbers at face value.  You’re complete and utter morons.  Useful idiots to the Chinese regime.  Regardless it’s actually New York that couldn’t clear the lowest level of bars.  Everybody else with competent governors and mayors did just fine.  Btw, who is Zach Beauchamp?

      The US is not the worse country, according to CTV news this morning Sweden has the worse record per captia… who knew that doing nothing would get you the number one spot....

  5. These two things confuse me:

    1.  People on disability/social assistance will get $300 more per month starting on April 22, because of the covid crisis; it's automatic no application required.  I have no problem with paying them more, but I'm confused as to why the government thinks they need it more now than during normal times.  Unlike many people, they still have an income -pittance though it be.

    2.  BCGEU wants to trigger the "me too" clause that says if one segment of the public sevice gets more money, everyone does.  All government employees are considered essential service, but nurses are getting extra because they're on the front lines.  I would think that just being able to work through this is good enough; most government employees aren't exposed to the public since most/all offices have been closed, at least in my sector.  So, in my opinion, this is unnecessary and not the right time to be asking for more money.

    1.  Source - overheard on a Ministry phone line recording;

    2. Source - email from BCGEU.

      It's an income redistribution policy.  None of any of this equates to people laid of due to Coronavirus.  Some welfare queens are taking home $4000 per month, while some working people are getting are getting half that.  A part-time worker and a logger or miner will get the exact same amount (children notwithstanding).

  6. US literally steals mask shipments sent from China and destined for Germany and Canada.  Then they tell Anerican producers to stop sending masks to Asia and Canada.  No doubt Canadian supporters of Trump will support this, while calling Trudeau a "traitor"; the irony.

    I'm starting to hope this virus kills as many Trump supporters as possible, starting with Trump himself.  Not all Republicans and not all conservatives, mind you, just the immoral, unethical lying sacks of shit that Trump and his followers are.  

    1. Shady

      They “literally “ didn’t steal anything.  You don’t steal something that you pay for.  More fake news.

  7. Interesting article on how poltical polarization influences response to life-threatening pathogens.  Liberals were less concerned about Ebola in 2013-2014 than Conservatives, and now with Covid-19, the reverse is true.  I guess we were just lucky that Ebola isn't as contagious and never made it around the world.

    Anyway, moral seems to be that people are inclined to pick a team and stick with it come hell or high highwater, even going so far as to distort reality.  

  8. Shout out to Home Depot: one entrance, 50 carts.  Each customer has to wait for a cart before they can go into the store, and the cart handles are wiped between customers.  Great job, hope more stores follow suit.

      WalMart does that now - EXCEPT that they wait for you to bring the cart in before the greeter wipes the handle for you.  That's too late - you already handled the handle to bring it in. :lol:  I asked for a wipe to wipe my gloved hands though, and explained that "I've already touched the handle."

      Fortunately for the Church goers, the right to bear arms saved them;   Jack Wilson used a single shot straight to the head.  and he has a license to carry.    Unfortunately the media won't get too upset about a gunman trying to mass murder Christians at a predominantly white church  because it doesn’t fit the victim hood profile they’re looking for.

  9. Harbour Air in Vancouver makes history with first electric commercial flight.

      It was impressive, but I don’t think it was a commercial flight.  It was a sea plane.

    2. Cannucklehead

      Cannucklehead

      The e-plane – a 62-year-old, six-passenger DHC-2 de Havilland Beaver seaplane retrofitted with a 750hp electric motor – was piloted by Greg McDougall, founder and chief executive of Harbour Air. “For me that flight was just like flying a Beaver, but it was a Beaver on electric steroids. I actually had to back off on the power,” he said.

       

    3. Shady

      Shady

      Good point.  A 6 seat aircraft isn’t much of a commercial flight.  It’s still impressive, but calling it a commercial flight is misleading.

  10. So happy to see Canada resoundingly reject populism and the far right, with the PPC failing to get even one seat.  Maybe their supporters will return to hiding in the woodwork, where they belong.

      I'm tired of the left judging the right with NO facts to back up any of it at all. I asked you one simple question "SHOW ME" what in the PPC platform is racist , or examples of  xenophobia, Islamophobia But you can't even do that...Typical left like to point fingers and scream bad man , bad man.....without even knowing why ….and when someone asks why....well sir why are you so butt hurt...

      NO, Justins  liberals want open borders, Are you telling Canadians on this board Justin did not invite all those illegal immigrants crossing from the US into Canada, tell us his actions to stop them from crossing at certain points is a message for them to stop or slow down... ? are you saying that these border crossing areas are secure?  ........ Which party is continually upping the refugee and immigrant numbers for Canada.. All the left party's and the conservatives, or liberal lites as I call them...…. when more than 60 % of Canadians want lower immigration numbers again I can't explain why it is policy but it is... Once again those changes to immigration policy were created by the left see that smiling prick Justin and ask him why....it has got nothing to do with the PPC....but hey maybe the translation is I hate the PPC party...because they talked about the issue....the nerve I know....

      You are the one that does all this , sticks up for the left and their half baked ideas....and then tell the world you glad to see the PPC get banished to hell...for something you don't know why, you just hate them for some reason....and then to cover it all up you declare i'm butt hurt....PPC been taking it up the bum from the left and cons since they announced they would be running....and in true Canadian style we welcomed them with open arms didn't we,( here is where I give them the finger)...........and then this happy go lucky bunch sets out to dig up dirt on all of PPC....and then slings it...because thats what Canadians do right....we eat this shit for breakfast....  

  11. Wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I am thankful for being Canadian, for the freedom we enjoy as individuals, for the relative safety we have, for the roof over my head, abundant food, my friends and family and to have a job that provides security and satisfaction.

      Let me know when Conservatives have been found guilty of ethics violations like the Liberals.  Let me know when Conservatives block the RCMP from conducting an investigation related to their ethics violations.  Keep trying to defend politicians that have been found guilty of ethics violations.

      @scribblet.   If Conservatives are the better choice this election, then why do they lie?  Doesn't that make them dishonest, just as the Liberals are?

      @Shady What do Trudeau's ethics violations have to do with the Conservatives lying?  Precious governments have had ethics violations as well, but they're all just as irrelevant to Scheer, are they not? 

      I'm asking why Conservatives lie, not engaging in a game of "who's worse".

      Previous PMs didn't have extra paid nannies, or any additional help.

      Mulroney did.  He just called it "Domestic help".  Trudeau Sr. did.  Harper tried to impose "Nanny Duties" on staff who had other jobs.  

      But of course, focusing on "Nanny-gate" makes perfect sense cause otherwise you'd have to look at Trump's nepotism.

      Because......either you refuse to get it why I support Trump over Dems, or you truly don't get it.

      Yes, I do have the moral credibility to criticize.  You don't. 

      On one hand you lament about discrimination and persecutions - and yet on the other, you're an enabler for the discrimination and persecutions of unborn human beings!

      That's not exclusively a religious moral stance, either.   Some atheist groups see it as human right violation!

      Equally as wrong, if she was expected to look like she supported him.  If she was some kind of staff at the event, that would be different.

      Yeah, Shell Oil and the Union leaders who thought it was ok to 'force' people to attend a political event = pricks.  A political leader (Trump or Trudeau) who is willing to accept such coercion = pricks.

      This is true, there's a difference between criticism in good faith and anti semitism through support of Hamas which wants the destruction of Israel.  I don't  believe for one minute they were going to Israel in good faith, it was a publicity stunt.

      Hepzibah Nanna, 28, of Maryland, and 42-year-old Sharyn Richardson of Texas, who had reportedly come to St. John's on a "missionary trip," were arrested over the weekend at St. John's International Airport. They each face charges of conveying a false bomb threat on Twitter with the intent to alarm the airport authority, resisting or obstructing a police officer, causing a disturbance, and multiple counts of publishing defamatory libel by posting on Twitter information about two local women that they knew was not true.

      Another of the tweets in question alleged the American Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) had sent people to harass Nanna. It included a photo taken from the inside of an airplane, depicting two women who appear to be traveling on the flight. The women are both established Newfoundland lawyers with no apparent connection to Nanna or Richardson.

      "Good news is we rescued a 14 year old girl on the flight who was being trafficked. The 2 women in right pic are traffickers," read the tweet, which is no longer available.
