Plague Premier Moe has COVID-19. He spent the last few days improperly using a substandard mask in public crowds, wiping his bare nose, and coughing.
Moe’s ending of restrictions and having the Roughriders hold super-spreader events has put the province into a pickle.
School hasn’t even re-opened yet, and the numbers are already approaching the terrible ones after school open last year, and Delta variant is more contagious. Parents who care about their kids are angry and terrified by the SaskParty government.
It’s been obvious since last Summer that indoor transmission is a risk because the virus is airborne. Would you go into a room with someone who has measles or TB? Not effing likely. Why? Because you wouldn’t want to trust that they and you are wearing your masks perfectly.
So why are some people comfortable sending their kids to old, poorly ventilated, crowded schools with literally dozens or hundreds of other “bubbles” mingling? It makes no GD sense. How’s it possible? A coordinated gaslighting campaign to make you think you’re being unreasonable to be uncomfortable about kids eating indoors at school with dozens of people while the Government says it’s too unsafe for adults and kids to do the same thing at restaurants in the same cities and towns.
Somewhat to my surprise, Saskatchewan managed last March and April to “Flatten the curve” and not exceed our ICU capacity in hospitals. A big part of this success was a lockdown where the streets were visibly empty for most of the day and night, kids were home from schools and many day cares, and many people could claim CERB emergency funding while they couldn’t work at their usual jobs.
Then Moe lied about using the virus reproduction rate to guide public health measures, and hasn’t looked back as wave after wave hits the people of this province, killing hundreds so far.
Then 2021 March and April, Saskatchewan did everything wrong. Schools and restaurants and other businesses nearly fully open, and the streets are jammed with every person going everywhere.
I don’t think I want to bother hearing what they have to say.
And here’s a stub from 1966:
This is pretty much how you could imagine things would go wrong if you were caught disarming a crazed gunman before or as police arrive on the scene.
Garces and Blackburn are working with the city to ensure the medical bills are paid, but Garces hopes for one other item: More education for officers on deadly use of force.
“Train them better, man,” said Garces. “That guy didn’t know what he was doing.”
He asked to have the bullet taken out of his chest as a souvenir, a reminder of how quickly life can change.
“I got the gun,” he said. “I thought it was over. but they the cops shot me. The good guys shot me.”
In the wake of the Parkland school shooting, and the survivors tackling the NRA corruption problem in the USA, we’re also being fed the utter hooey that school teachers should have guns to keep children safe. The thought of my parents, or other teachers as carting a gun around school, is indescribable. English doesn’t have a single word to describe the feeling that you’ve left your dimension for an alternate evil mirror universe, but it’s possibly what rising fascism is supposed to feel like to people who question it.
It’s staggering that the province is willing to spend multitudes more money on redundant highway so people can avoid going to Regina, than they are to improve literacy.
Don Morgan is out of touch, and wrong.
The Saskatchewan Library Trustees’ Association said in a news release after the budget that Morgan has said the province “should be getting out of bricks and mortar libraries and people should be focusing on electronic or alternate media.”
The association said it was “deeply disappointed and discouraged that the work we have done promoting the value of Saskatchewan’s libraries has fallen on deaf ears.
“Had the government been listening they would know that libraries are indeed working with promoting and developing technologies. Libraries are the wave of the future.”
Learn all about the oil industry in Saskatchewan. From issues of mineral rights and salt water spills, to a lot more, you’ll learn a bit about what makes our economy and political system tick and grind.
When Harper appointed Carson as a top adviser, the fraud used his position to undermine research into climate change.
About the only part not worth reading is the line saying “There is no easy way to cut emissions and grow the economy”, and now you’ve read it, and can recognize that tired line as untrue.
A cringe-worthy tweet explains the Conservative mindset in running the election campaign early before school gets back. Keep kids in the dark, and disengaged so wise old people can continue to run things for them. Poppa Harper knows best.
“Conservative. Pro Oil & Gas. Man made Climate Change is a farce. Anti Trudeau / Wynne and the biased MSM [Mainstream media].”
Starting the campaign abnormally early is a ploy to burn through campaign budgets of competing parties, rather than making ideas and people the focus of the campaign.
