  1. It would behoove you to post a link that supports your comments because I do believe you are blowing smoke out your butt.
  2. https://petitions.ourcommons.ca/en/P...etition=e-2574 Signed and signature confirmed.
  3. An alert may very well have prevented some deaths but as I mentioned that was up to the RCMP command - not the officers of the ground who did as best they could in awful circumstances.
  4. The RCMP on the ground did not know the killer was posing as a member nor that he was driving a fake police cruiser until just after 8AM in the morning - hours after the killings began and shortly before he killed Constable Stevenson, burned his vehicle and hers, shot a passerby and stole his vehicle. Issuing an Emergency Alert is a decision made by command not by the officers involved in the chase who were doing their level best in a rural area with many back roads over a widespread area under very trying and confusing circumstances. I for one am not about to question nor reprove them.
  5. Over dramatize the fact that rural communities are not equipped to take care of their own RESIDENTS during this crisis. What about sheltering in place don't these people get. What about over-burdened health facilities don't they get. It is beyond belief that some part-time cottagers can't check their privilege during this time.
  6. Home is where they should be staying, eyeball. They were told to shelter in place. That does not mean traveling to your part-time cottage in a rural area.
  7. "Why not if you have a cottage?" As symptoms don't show up right away, it is easy for people to think..........'oh I'll just go up to the cottage and get away from heavily infected areas'. Trouble is if they do come down with the virus, we DO NOT have the facilities to manage our own, let alone those from away. It is really just that simple. Don't further burden a system that is barely able to take care of it's own citizens at the best of times.
  8. They are supposed to go straight home and arrange to have groceries etc delivered. There are agencies equipped to take care of those who don't have family or friends to do that for them.
  9. Sounds familiar, TSS. I live in a rural area in northern BC and our health resources are minimal at best. The population of our specific area is 20,000 souls and we have but 64 acute care beds in our small hospital. Other communities don't even have a hospital. Lately we've seen many people from the Lower Mainland coming up early to open their cottages. The CRD (a local form of government) had to enact regulations that will force these people to a 14-day quarantine and they are to come prepared for the duration - no stopping to shop or visit. Straight to your cabin and stay their until t
  10. If it was just something that they wanted to do to avoid delays then why weren't they upfront with the Opposition parties and provincial premiers from the beginning? Why wait until the very day they were to read the bill in the HoC before releasing their final draft? I can well understand that the government needs the ability to move quickly to respond to new developments during this crisis but that does not give them the right to forgo Parliamentary approval which as has just been demonstrated, can take place in a a day or two.
  11. "Climate group Extinction Rebellion (XR) say they are investigating a series of “dangerous” coronavirus posts by an account using their name. An account named XR East Midlands (@xr_east) have caused outrage after tweeting “abhorrent” messaging stating coronavirus is a “cure”. The account posted a series of covid19 messages over the last 24 hours suggesting the deadly virus was a "cure" for the "disease" caused to the environment by humans. One post reads: "The undeniable truth is, the Earth is recovering, thanks to Corona." Another previous Tweet said: "Earth is healing. Th
  12. So, in a National Health Crisis, the minority liberal government got together with the Opposition parties and provincial premiers to strike a deal for a financial bail-out package that is much needed to help Canadians and Canadian businesses in these trying times. Everyone agreed that it was necessary and supported the bill as it was then presented to them. All federal parties agree to send a set number of MPs to the HoC for an extraordinary recall of Parliament. And yesterday they gathered expecting that this would be passed in the House and sent to the Senate at the end of the
  13. Add me to the list. My friends don't call me a hermit for no reason. Got my pup and my cat for company and oodles of great books to read. Stocked up on groceries long ago and have a neighbor with lots of TP he bought months ago from Costco - good to go, I am.
  14. I felt invincible when I was much younger but I also knew that if I broke the rules there were consequences. So I guess the kids should just set up house on the beach? Because home is exactly where they would be headed at the end of the day. Every single one a possible vector for the virus.
  15. Photo reminds me of the aftermath of a climate change protest.
  16. When I was a very young girl growing up on a farm in SK, we had an outdoor biffy and the Eaton's or Simpson-Sears catalogue - worked a charm they did.
  17. "Now is the time to declare martial law in Canada. Anyone caught outside their home can be sent to prison for up to 1 year." According to the latest numbers, the people who have recovered from the virus by far outnumber those who have died. And of those who have succumbed to the virus, most had underlying health conditions. There is no need to declare martial law and the idea that someone would be sent to jail for a year should they break any such draconian measure is ludicrous. "If we close all our borders and forced everyone to stay inside their home for 3 weeks, the virus would
  18. " Queue the mass panic...." - which you are only contributing to with this post. Get a grip.
  19. Try checking smaller stores, scrib. Our local country store had no shortage of any products including TP and hand sanitizer. Just saying.
  20. The cbc loathe Trump and will take any opportunity to watch him make a fool of himself - they are rarely disappointed which I'm sure brings glee to the hearts of all those virtue-signalling censorious twits in the corp.
  21. But................but that's not what Trump said today. According to him his 'good friend' is just fine - no worries.
  22. "The economy will continue being the economy,...." A total nonsense statement much like 'the budget will balance itself'. "......but sustainable, and as eyeball said, not dependent on growth, " Sustainable upon what? You do realize that economies depend on growth..............course not. ''....live within its means, " L O L ".......distribute wealth more usefully so money circulates within our economy rather than being hoarded by corporations and super wealthy people offshore, hidden from taxes." What 'wealth'? The wealth of our country lies in her people.
  23. The list of Indigenous groups that have officially endorsed the Frontier project has grown to 14: Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation Mikisew Cree First Nation Fort McKay First Nation Fort Chipewyan Métis Fort McKay Métis Fort McMurray Métis 1935 Fort McMurray First Nation #468 Métis Nation of Alberta - Region 1 and its member locals: Athabasca Landing Local # 2010 Buffalo Lake Local # 2002 Conklin Local # 193 Lac La Biche Local # 1909 Owl River Local # 1949 Willow Lake Local # 780
  24. "......must be the first consideration in determining whether the legislation or action in question can be justified." True...............but not the last.
