Politicians prove lockdowns unnecessary -
But to maintain the pretence, three little responses, when caught icing-handed, are all that's required: "sorry", "didn't know", "won't happen again".
In fact, some (or all) actually knew in advance that they "didn't know".
UPDATE: Wednesday Jan 6:
WAKE-UP PEOPLE - THE COVID SCARE IS A SCAM!
Even a top medical professional doesn't take the rules seriously:
From Calgary Herald: I just wanted to disconnect': MLA Tany Yao apologizes for being unreachable in Mexico ... former chief of staff Jamie Huckabay visited the U.K. over the holidays ... MLA Jeremy Nixon travelled to Hawaii in December. MLA Jason Stephan, visited Arizona.
If any Liberals sinned (this time) the CBC is not saying, and past sinner Trudeau is tsk-tsking the current infractions.
There are more:
WesternStandard: UCP Energy Minister Sonya Savage’s press secretary Kavi Bal – along with the minister herself – both travelled to BC despite the fact the province was in a full COVID-19 lockdown.
WesternStandard: Calgary Mayor's Chief of Staff Devery Corbin travelled to Hawaii.
These are the good times being had by governmental personalities while the taxpayer sits in lockdown behind a mask.
The governmental system itself is promoting ANARCHY.
UPDATE: Monday Jan 4:
MLA Tracy Allard has gotten grief from her constituents (though not from her boss) and it's so far an anonymous rumour, but she's said to be planning to resign her Cabinet post).
Isn't it time for ALL constituents to speak up? Or at least take off the ridiculous masks!
Anyone voting for any of the following forgiven miscreants in the next election is in need of mental adjustment:
CTV-Edmonton: Premier Kenney Declines Sanctions Over International Travel
Then there's Federal NDP Nicky Ashton and her recent trip to Greece -- NatNewsWatch
Nicky Ashton had a good reason, she thought: her granny was/is "sick" and/or "dying", depending on who's saying it in what context. I'm a granny myself and I'm not sick, but I'm dying, tiny bit by tiny bit. Could be tomorrow (one never knows); could be in the not too distant future (I had a dream that I'm going to die when I'm 84). Needless to say, I'm living it up till such time -- all by myself, of course, because nobody's allowed to visit me.
This is not sour grapes on my part. I'm lucky to still be independent. There are plenty of dying grannies in Long Term Care "homes" who've been deprived of comfort from their relatives due to the "pandemic". The loneliness, alone, is killing them. Why not just break the rules and march en masse into the We-Don't-Care Homes -- (to be fair, they did begin to care a bit right after it became public that up until now their greatest interest has been in profits) -- and threaten to breathe on the keepers if they don't get out of the way?
I'd like to know if Ashton wore a mask and distanced the whole time she was with her Granny (or peered at her through a window, like so many other grandchildren have had to do). But we can't know that, especially now that it's obvious she's not being entirely up front.
Things seem pretty dire in Greece: lockdowns, masks, etc. Odd that Greek authorities okayed her visit to an elderly person in the first place.
It seems that most politicians carry a gene called "confabulation" (a plausible but imaginary memory bank that fills in uncomfortable gaps). The truth tends to reveal itself to the rest of us in what they do not say.
Yes, there were other wayward souls, plenty of others!
There's Ontario's Rod Phillips: Calgary Herald:
And Quebec's Pierre Arcand: NatNewsWatch:
Naturally, Arcand expressed regret and promised not to do it again. What more could anyone ask of him? Notice how Anglade attempts to get herself off the hook by stating that she "tried to discourage him"? But she KNEW he was going and she KEPT HIS SECRET. In other words, she collaborated in a lockdown infraction.
And the list goes on:
There's Saskatchewan Highways Minister Joe Hargrave (NatNewsWatch) who just had to get to California, and only now realizes it was an "error in judgement". In other words: he judged that nobody would find out, and he's sorry that they did, but not likely sorry that he gets to continue his vacation due to now being in California's visitors' quarantine.
Hands up all who wouldn't like to be quarantined in California at this time of the year.
So many lovely people having their cake and eating it too.
Like all the others (and that includes Ford's cottage trip, Trudeau's cottage trip last Easter -- complete with motorcade -- and Andrew Scheer, Elizabeth May and others sharing a tiny plane together with small children) these people are all really, really sorry for how things looked; not for the deed itself -- because they didn't speak "moistly".
How does one NOT speak moistly? Did any of these icons ever attend a high school science class?
What's particularly galling about Trudeau's cottage trip is his wife's Instagram message:
Well I, for one, am GLAD all of the above broke the rules; it shouts that they know the "pandemic" dangers are bogus and the lockdown rules are a scam. It also reveals that they aren't terribly self-disciplined and, for the country as a whole, that should be more worrying than any "Covid" bug.
They have the power to make all Canadians suffer.
It's interesting to note that multiple Conservative MP's are planning to step down at the next election. One might hope it's because they know something the government isn't telling us and plan to make statements to that effect after they've collected their final pay cheques.
"To spend more time with family," is the usual reason given, no matter what the truth may be, although Peter Kent may be feeling his age. Candor is a rare trait in a politician at the best of times, the very word "politician' being officially synonymous with subterfuge and double dealing:
Artha: Politician: ~ noun
1. a leader engaged in civil administration
2. a person active in party politics
3. a schemer who tries to gain advantage in an organization in sly or underhanded ways
There's lots more discussion about the situation with Ford and Phillips. I'm not the only one, naturally, who is asking questions:
TVO.org: So Many Questions About an Inexplicable Decision
The CBC talks about it some more (it's okay for them to do so because he's not a Liberal), and then takes pains to assure us there were no Federal Liberals misbehaving over the Christmas Holidays, or at least not outed for it.
I wish the CBC hadn't been so reassuring; it has the effect of bolstering the "conspiracy theory" theory upheld by the media who like to refer to it ad nauseam, often in knee-jerk fashion. I don't believe for a second that no Liberals broke their own rules. No doubt, after the disclosures last Spring, they've found a quieter way to have their own way. Or else the 5-year tax plan Trudeau bestowed on certain media is having the desired effect. The government giveth and can no doubt taketh where it deemeth it necessary.
From Breitbart: Nov. 2018
Uh, where's Morneau now -- after double-talking for Trudeau all this time? He hadda Hit the Road, Jack. (Ray Charles}. He took the fall for the WE fiasco, but, of course, it was an upwards fall.
The short and long of it: honest government has no place in the halls of journalism, yet former journalists, such as Chrystia Freeland, are not only eligible to run for office and hold crucial positions within government, it's not uncommon for a former Finance Minister to eventually take the reins of government itself. The word "incestuous" comes to mind. Do I have an unkempt mind? Yeah, me and also the dictionary: Artha - Incestuous - "excessive intimacy".
Wikipedia has some serious faults, but where else would you find an historical list of dishonest shenanigans on the part of Canadian politicians - from Day One, beginning with Souse John A. Macdonald? And these are merely the ones that floated to the top of the slush bin.
By rights, if we're not all by now "conspiracy theorists", then we're not paying attention. For instance, I believe that Rod Phillips is his own doppelgänger!
