Sidewalk Tax? You Must Jest?

Yes, the www.sidewalktax.ca is a jest, it’s poking fun at the Saskatchewan Governmenet in a way that might pique your interest if you’re just an average driver going about your day. They’re running radio ads, and there’s less than a week remaining in the campaign where they’ll refund the EV tax for Saskatchewan drivers who’ve registered an EV. It’s a bit of a fund raiser for the Sask Environmental Society, and Lung Association of Sask also.

And is the EV tax fair? No, it’s completely unfair. It’s a stab at EV owners who are doing more about the climate crisis than the entire Government of Saskatchewan, which is owned in part by the fossil fuel industry. The math shows the government is collecting a lot more in payments from EV owners than ICE car drivers. Even so, it’s still a better idea to get an EV than a gas-burning car or truck, and saves you money in the long run.

Media Making Moe Not A Monster

Oh, I guess not, instead the focus is on making Saskatchewan a nation within a nation. I guess Mandryk was wrong.

Thanksgiving Sadness

My Mum passed away in the early morning of Thanksgiving this year. She’s being missed by all who cared for her, and nearly everyone who met her cared for her because she was a lovely person.

I didn’t know what to put on my blog about this. I’ve been braced for this time for most of a decade, with her first getting very sick almost 8 years ago. She wasn’t expected to survive, but the surgery and chemo then worked, and she outlived my Dad who got cancer after her, but died first. They joked that they were racing to see who would first. Mum lived to her mid 70s, which is a whole lot better than mid 60s, but of course I’d rather mid 90s like her Mum, my Grandma. Cancer took both my parents, which sucks.

I have memories of a lifetime, and also special ones kept safe online like this one from the National Film Board where she makes an appearance:

Plague Update: Moe’s Killing People

“Minister Merriman, like Premier Moe, seems incapable of either hindsight or foresight.

Our government must understand that a combination of strategies is required, rather than relying on vaccination alone.”

Moe has acted slowing, telling us he’s monitoring the crisis that’s limiting healthcare.

Cut What?

Why does Bernie need to compromise, and not the warmongers who blew billions on a failed war in Afghanistan?

Speaking of Afghanistan though, why did America fail? It was never intended to win.

Plague Update: Saskatchewan Abandoned by Sask Party

It’s almost like we have a caretaker government who doesn’t care to take care of us.

Plague Update: Oh No, Not Again

The election in Canada is on Monday, and the Conservatives are annoyed that HarperCon Kenney is trying to stop his province’s healthcare system from burning down completely by then.

And Saskatchewan’s numbers per capita are worse while Moe and Merriman and Duncan do nothing to Flatten the Curve or try to get us to #CovidZero.
