Saskatchewan has a big problem in our health care system. The last Premier, Wall, promised to do something about this, but nothing got fixed. Premier Moe may be too busy picking a fight with B.C. to ask his Health Minister(s) to hire a small team of doctors to ensure donor organs are collected and given to people waiting on donor lists so they can be healthy and rejoin the workforce and have full lives again.
“SaskAdvantage” is on the sign driving into the Regina Bypass highway tangle east of the capital city. If you’re sick on an organ donor waiting list in Saskatchewan, you’re at a definite SaskDisadvantage because our Health Minister isn’t getting the job done for you.
When someone is correct multiple times about major events, it’s worth hearing what they have to say about the latest unfolding.
Trump’s Presidency is crumbling, and if Americans wake up, it won’t last long into next year.
Husky has only been charged now by the Crown, for a spill nearly 2 years ago. Federal charges may be pending too. The provincial charges carry a possible fine of only $1M. Great deal for an oil company, to operate and ruin the water supply of Saskatchewan’s 3 largest city and many other people too.
A report from the province is being delayed until after a possible appeal, making it many years since the spill until others can learn important details and possibly solutions.
Here’s a blog post from way back about the spill.
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.
This was sent to me, and the person asked it be published anonymously:
Tonight while scrolling though Facebook I noticed a statement from you about the pipeline in BC. I am actually very disappointed to see you support it. We don’t need any more pipelines in this country, we need to invest in solar and wind energy, not more fossil fuels that are contributing to global warming. Up to this point I’ve thought very highly of you and thought that you represented me and Douglas Park very well. But now I am questioning myself and if I will be able to support you in the future. I know that we live in a province run by the oil industry, but I think that it is time that stops. Please stop supporting people who only care about lining their pockets and who don’t care about our environment and future.
After reading another NDP supporter or two’s facebook pages, this seems to be a common sentiment that Sarauer’s NDP have read the tea leaves wrong, and are chasing the people convinced by decades of propaganda that we need the oil industry to grow. Maybe there’s no other way to win in politics in oil-crazed Saskatchewan, but I prefer being honest, and working towards policies that might save civilization from the pollution crisis.
