Trudeau goes on vacation -- again
... thanks to the "Covid-19" scare!
But first ... it seems the facts need reviewing -- again!
From LiveScience: How does the new coronavirus compare with the flu?
Covid-19, although not as rampantly dangerous as the regular kind of flu, is spreading in the same way that flu does; it's acting like the flu in that the majority of people recover and only some of those already compromised by age or illness succumb.
When are the corporate media going to admit that?
Why, instead, is Covid-19 being played up so prodigiously when the regular flu typically wreaks far more havoc (CDC) yet there is no panic over it.
LiveScience: Myth: Getting COVID-19 is a death sentence
Since I'm 50% Irish and St. Patty's day is coming up, I'm quoting Irish Central as well:

Now this is interesting:
Sophie Trudeau got tested (CBC) even though she's "feeling well"! The reports are extremely vague as to the extent of her symptoms, if any.
But what if everyone "feeling well" demanded a test? Well, they'd be tough out of luck, wouldn't they. If you think you might have it, you're supposed to call the public health authority who will advise you on what to do next.
Did you catch that word "authority"?
So watch your step, eh? Know your place or it won't go well with you.
So far, however, the panic has worked out well for our Prime Minister, who can now enjoy a vacation:
CBC: PM Justin Trudeau's in home isolation because Sophie tested positive.
Hey, didn't the PM and fam just have a vacation in January?
Oh no, not another scandal!
PostMillennial: New Costa Rica photos raise questions about Trudeau’s vacation spending
The extra aircraft were for his entourage, silly. Another vacation for RCMP types who don't believe in paying their own way, but have finally, finally acquiesced on the earlier trip to the Bahamas.
Thing is, though, it still comes out of the tax payer's pocket.
Yes, the Trudeaus do love vacations -- according to RebelMedia (2017) they have spent quite a bit of Justin's time in office vacating: Jet-setting PM: One Year Ten Vacations
And then, in 2018:
Globe&Mail: Trudeau government’s Davos trip cost taxpayers nearly $700,000 ...
Yessir ... there's something in it for everybody:
A Maclean's writer (2013) enjoyed imagining Peter MacKay sneaking into the PM’s office while he’s gone, sitting at the big desk and pretending to make important phone calls. “No, you listen to me, Mr. President . . . ”
Admittedly, that was when Harper was on vacation, but, given MacKay's current aspirations, it could very well still apply.
Back to the scary present:
PostMillennial: Shoppers Drug Mart accused of raising prices on toilet paper as coronavirus panic spreads
The rush on toilet paper, similar to Black Friday mania [YouTube], is a sign that Canada's rep as a cool country is being flushed down the tube.
I'm bemused and a bit frightened at how impressionable people can be. Apparently, when they think of flu they think of diarrhea, and when the advice given is to stock up and hole up, well ... you know the rest. They've knee-jerked instead of searching out the facts - that this flu is a respiratory illness, not a lavatory one!
But the ignorance of the people seems to be what the government and its media hope for and rely upon.
Which is why I'm relieved to find that some of the comments to this CBC fright piece, adding fuel to the fire by dragging Russia (via Ukraine - how unbiased is that, eh?) into the Covid-19 blame game, are actually quite astute. Here are a few of them, exactly as is:
-- Skimming the recent posts here and remembering other posts over recent days, CBC should examine the spread of misinformation in their own social media platform.
-- Don't worryabout Russia, our national broad caster does a pretty good job at brainwashing the masses. Amazing how well the cencorship works when you try to post anything here
...they [the CBC] are on a roll with the censorship today......
--- no doubt, time and ahalf on weekend
My faith is partially restored that there are some Canadians who are nobody's fools.
