  • From Marilyn Erickson on COVID-19 rapid tests for people 70+ to be available at pharmacies

    What a disorganized roll out of everything from cannabis to vaccines it’s been in our province, and now it’s the Rapid Test Kit boondoggle today. The Heath Ministry’s PSA ON TV announces (word for word) EVERYONE WILL HAVE TEST KITS STARTING FRIDAY. Not. Today it’s 70 yrs+, thank you that’s me , but did they tell you select pharmacies only, or only 100 per pharmacy, or how long we’d wait for the next batch? Most pharmacies couldn’t even request their 100 until today though they’ve been needed for the past year! Necessary in schools, but also for those undergoing treatments, for newborn parents, folks waiting for surgery, or to bid farewell to a loved one.
    Politics has no place in healthcare but sadly under Mr Horgan’s government it does. Whether it’s the sad situation on our streets because of the the lack of addiction and mental health treatment services, or the laughable rollout of cannabis to recreational users only (medical dispensaries were shut down, sorry), a vax booking program that crashed and couldn’t keep up, contact tracing that went sideways, bulk rapid tests expiring in a warehouse, dying seniors in care homes because of unvaxxed staff, … and now we have ruffled 70+’s driving desperately pharmacy to pharmacy for their dwindling golden ticket, er, test. And public service announcements with half truths and high expectations.
    If I had been the boss overseeing this lack of foresight, disorganization and gross incompetence, a whole whack of bureaucrats, starting with Bill Blair and Adrian Dix would be looking for work.

  • From Olivier Grenon on Black and Indigenous protesters are treated differently than the ‘convoy’ because of Canada’s ongoing racism

    This article is a big load of manure! So misleading and false. I’ve been in Ottawa since February 5th and it was so amazing and peaceful. There was people of all ages, of all religion and all skin colour. I took some videos while there and you can see so clearly how peaceful it was. I’m attaching a link here to my instagram were you can see a brave black man who got beaten by all white Ottawa police in front of Parliament. That guy was very peaceful.

    Up until the Ottawa Police started to use violence against us and beating us up, there was 0 violence. Notice that no protesters were throwing stuff at the police.

    This article as well as the one about twitter study are very misleading. I drove 4600km from Sooke to see with my own eyes and I’ve never seen anything more peaceful.

    Please I’m begging to all of you to find a place in your heart and have empathy for your fellow Canadians who are peacefully protesting againt all these absurd covid mandates.

  • From Ralph Hull on A Twitter investigation reveals what the ‘freedom convoy,’ Islamophobes, incels and Hindu supremacists have in common

    Thanks for sharing this Britt ~ “Freedom” is sure a misused word and means totally different things to “other” people. It does not stand to reason that this “convoy” is based on a health issue. How did these people get this far in life without a few vaccines? The Earth is not necessarily a friendly environment for Homo sapiens.
    We are the victims of our selected news sources. As a retired professional broadcaster I always felt that Fox News was absolutely horrible and misleading. It is hard for me to understand how Fox could have so many followers. Is there a vacuum of thought?

  • From Olivier Grenon on Feds lighten border measures as part of transition of the pandemic response

    I live in Sooke yet I can’t go to restaurants, to the new gym and can’t even go swim there anymore! I can’t go see my wife and stepchildren who live abroad and even thought they got a Canadian visa in their passport Canada doesn’t allow them to fly here to see me.

    Coercion is used by terrorists yet look at the shear level of coercion that’s been used against all of us!

    I love Sooke but I put my great job there as a carpenter on hold and left last February 1st and headed to Ottawa on my own. I’ve arrived here in the morning of February 5th and have been living in my little SUV since.

    Everyday I see older ladies coming to my car window deliver hot vegetarian food to me. I have had countless people of all age thank me for being there. Many people here who support us are from Eastern Europe were it used to be communism so they know more than anyone what is afflicting our country now.

    I’ve seen many people shed tears while walking here and seeing us living in our cars. When people ask me wereI drove from and I tell them I drove 4600km from Sooke to join the truckers in Ottawa they absolutely love it! It gives them a lot of hope that from everywhere accross Canada we’ve came to Ottawa to fight for our freedom.

    I’ve been to the front of Parliament many times and have never seen any swastika. I’ve seen tens of thousands people, thousands of flags and posters. I’ve seen no violence at all, only love, laughter, children playing, people shouting “freedom!”. I’ve seen many people cry, I did myself too at time.

    This protest could hardly be any more peaceful as it already is.

    The fact that the liberal government has enacted the war/emergency act to shut us down proves our point that our fight is righteous! Here the spirit is extremely high. I’m among many very courageous men and women who do not get intimidated by those squad of police officers patrolling around in the very least!

    Funny enough in the last few days we’ve seen our number grow which is great! We are prepared and resolved to stay here for months if needed and we aren’t scared of arrests or having our bank account frozen!

    I miss my wife and step children. I haven’t seen them since last May when I came back to Canada. I’m in Ottawa fighting for their freedom, getting rides of all these absurd mandates and open the way for them to travel here to see me. I’m here in Ottawa fighting for every Canadian future. Who are you fighting for? Come join us!!

    Here’s my instagram were I post some videos and pictures if interested: oliviersooke

  • From Bryana on Opinion: Being mad doesn't make you right

    I think you made your own case, here,and I’m glad you weren’t talking to anyone but yourself. Ha ha. Because not all Canadians feel the same way; can we least agree on that? I’m frustrated, too, but more because opinions like this push everyone into taking sides. There is enough divisiveness out there already, the media needs to stop doing this.

  • From Brett on Blockade Backlash: Three-in-four Canadians tell convoy protesters, 'Go Home Now'

    These stats show me that there is great support to remove vaccine mandates. The usual 85 % for and 15 % against that goes with the vaccination rates on covid issues has clearly changed, now the vaccinated see the need to drop the vaccine card now. This current strain infects even triple dosed people, vaccine cards mean little to end this pandemic currently.

  • From Britt Santowski on Candice Bergen’s nod to Trump is a sign of Canada’s descent, but the Charter may save us

    COMMENT from Rob Gardner

    Victor Charlie I think it’s a north American record also.

    In an interview released this month, the last surviving architect of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms expressed outrage at the state of democracy in Canada.
    Brian Peckford, former premier of Newfoundland, was part of the group of lawmakers and politicians who formulated the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms in the early 1980’s.
    In the interview, Mr. Peckford states that he “cannot believe what is happening to our country. I am extremely saddened by government enacting measures that clearly violate the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.”

    The Charter, as it is commonly called, is a bill of rights entrenched in the Constitution of Canada, which formed the first part of the Constitution Act of 1982. Created under the Liberal government of Pierre Trudeau, the Charter’s intent is to guarantee certain fundamental rights to Canadians.

    The culprit in an unprecedented breach of Charter Rights is the Covid virus, and its various manifestations within society.

    It is Mr. Peckford’s opinion that “none of the governments, the federal government in Canada, or any of the provinces, have even made an attempt to justify what they’re doing.”
    Peckford also believes that government “know that the [scientific]data is not on their side,” referring to the justifications given to use the coronavirus as an excuse to suspend the rights of Canadians.

    Mr. Peckford further explains that at the time the Charter was formulated, he doesn’t believe “anybody thought it was possible for a government to do anything to infringe upon these rights and freedoms.”

    Then came Covid-19. Not only has the virus created unprecedented social chaos. According to one of the founders of the Charter, it is serving to strip Canadians of their personal freedoms. Mr. Peckford is outraged by the situation. His concern borders on shock regarding what has potential to permanently alter our society.

    Bringing about a most ominous circumstance. Why is it that Canadian media are not reflecting an equal level of concern? Obviously, this man knows what he is talking about. So why is it that CBC, Globe & Mail and the rest are not echoing Mr. Peckford’s concern?

    And what of the irony in the fact that Pierre Trudeau established the Charter, while Justin Trudeau is ultimately responsible for the current erosion of Charter Rights? Are readers to believe this wouldn’t make good media copy? This is the scoop of century! Yet, establishment media have not uttered a word about it.

    How odd-ball it is. Government hasn’t spoken of this. Nor have media. Nor our academic world. Throw in non-for profit groups, unions, health industry, legal industry, doctors, nurses and lawyers.

    No one says a damn word about it– except for the guy who helped write the Charter. If this isn’t the greatest piece of irony known to people-kind, what is?

    And yet, this is the exact state-of-affairs within Justin Trudeau’s post-modern Canada. What we have here is nothing short of a systemic erosion of Canadian human rights.

    Just like one finds in the source nation of the Covid plague–the communist country of China. Every bit of it being one giant coincidence– right?

  • From Don Brown on URGENT OPEN LETTER: Call for Immediate Action to End Dangerous Freedom Convoy

    Thank you Grand Chief. You clearly state the challenge and the solution to the current threat to our democracy. But this addresses the immediate crisis. What is desperately needed is to address the underlying causes, the fundamental moral issues that need to be resolved. We need to replace the political game of left and right with the application of justice to the moral issues of right and wrong.

  • From Brett on Candice Bergen’s nod to Trump is a sign of Canada’s descent, but the Charter may save us

    Interesting read. I wonder why there is so much support for this cause when it is so “wrong”
    Maybe because the evidence of this virus being so bad and the vaccinated now getting hospitalized in higher and higher percentages make the mandatory vaccination less and less being “needed” or warranted due to our high vaccination rate.
    I truly believe this dissent over vaccine mandates lately has become more justified due to the fact restrictions are being lifted but mandates are not and large members of the public see this as an over stepping of government restrictions.
    This is not about if vaccines are “effective and safe” as regurgitated over and over again. It’s about the segregation of vaccinated vs non vaccinated

  • From Olivier Grenon on The occupation of Ottawa by the ‘freedom convoy’ has the potential for an urban siege

    I’m in Ottawa and things here are so peaceful, I drove 4600km from Sooke to see with my own eyes. It is the single biggest celebration Canada has ever seen! They are tens of thousands of peole of all walk of life from babie to seniors and people of countless demographic groups.

    Today at noon we sang the Canada National Anthem in front of Parliament and it was amazing! I posted a video I took on my instagram: oliviersooke

    The energy here is absolutely stunning, people smiling, screaming “freedom”, “I love you” at each others. Everyone us so liberated and happy here. We are by no mean any threats unless love is considered a threat?

  • From Brett on Update on vaccination requirement for health professionals

    Great story, but for accuracy if a health care practitioner receives a j and j one shot vaccine they are considered fully vaccinated by law. Why the need for a second shot by law?
    Is this standard for the health care professionals even more stringent or is this story inaccurate or fake news?

    2022/02/09 at 10:01 pm
    • From Britt Santowski on Update on vaccination requirement for health professionals

      Great name. Please don’t throw about the term “fake news” like free candy. Fake News is when you are looking at house and someone insists it’s a banana. Fake news is when someone is elected and others persist with Big Lie in the face of multiple failed lawsuits determining the election was fair. Fake News is when someone attacks another group and then plays victim. BUT … A detail that fails to answer a very specific question from the mind of the reader simply calls for more information. As I understand it, the J&J single shot is considered a (less effective) equivalent, and still requires a booster after 12 months. Britt

      2022/02/10 at 1:26 pm
      • From Brett on Update on vaccination requirement for health professionals

        Britt opinion or fact ?
        I’m looking for facts.
        The j and j one shot is considered fully vaccinated, fact. Your comment of still needing a booster is totally irrelevant because none of the vaccines require boosters to utilize non essential businesses.
        The story is misleading at best because it doesn’t report on facts. Misleading or inaccurate new stories that take the time to inform are doing a disservice to those looking for credible facts in our journalism, thus Fake news is referenced.

  • From Olivier Grenon on Scenes from the streets of Ottawa, in Parliament and beyond

    I left Sooke on Tuesday morning to go join the Truckers in Ottawa to support them and drove my car all the way there 4400km and arrived yesterday morning. I slept in a motel only once on Wednesday night and drove day and night. I had never driven more than about 1300km so to do this I prayed God to give me his sight and to protect me alomg the way.

    Words lack to explain what’s happening here. I’ve never seen so much love, unity, so much happiness, so many smiles.

    I parked my car near the parliament on Kent street that had Trucks there and some other cars and once parked, more cars parked behind me. We are parked here indefinitely. Filling up roads, sleeping here.

    Yesterday I saw tens of thousands people on parliament hill and everywere around on different streets. So many people so happy, children, older couples, families all unified. It felt like the biggest festival ever, the energy here is profound peace, love and compassion, smiles, acceptance, joy.

    There’s stands in various places on different streets with many free stuff, food, drinks, bbq, clothing, toilet products and there’s even people walking around with many gas and diesel jerry can and filling up trucks and cars parked here for free.

    At night they installed near the parliament air filled playground for children such as slides and others normally used in carnival. Last evening children were seen sliding and bouncing up even when so cold outside while adults had many places were to hang out with different music to dance on.

    The police patrolled arround in small unit and appear to be cold and aren’t looking intimidating at all.

    Most people don’t wear mask but some due and it’s everyone choices. A child knocked on my car window yesterday and handed me a little bag with a chocolate and a little drawing “Your the best” with a truck drawing written “Freedom” on it. I felt like crying when seeing this, now tears are coming out as I remember this. The unity seen here is absolutely astonishing, never seen before.

    The honking has been quite an orchestra at times and I have found myself at my surprise to not be annoyed by it at all even with my nature of normally getting easily irritated with noise.

    The fact of the matter is that everyone here is attracted to very basic needs that we were denied far too long such as the crucial human need to interact with others and freedom to do so of course.

    As I write this the truck thad has spent the night in front of me had two men fill up the back with about 15 diesel and gas empty jerry cans and left. I expect he will return in a timely matter loaded up and they will distribute around completely free. People here who do these free service seem very dedicated and happy to do so.

    It’s very overwhelming to be here and see all this happening without not feeling an immense wave of relief and love roll upon oneself and feel the need to cry and want to let go of those horrible 2 years trauma we’ve all experienced. We’ve all been through so much in the last two years and here is ground zero for a new beginning that start on the right foot.

    I deeply love Sooke and want my wife and stepchildren to live there once the Canadian government removes all the mendates and travel restrictions they will finally be able to fly here and reunite with me. So for me bring here in Ottawa is very personal, I am here for my stepchildren future and wife future and will stay in Ottawa however weeks needed to tear down the wall so to speak. I’m prepared to stay here for months. My family livings abroad with valid Canadian visas are counting on me.

    I send lots of love to Sooke from Ottawa, I will be back a free man.

    2022/01/09 at 9:24 pm
    • From Britt Santowski on Sorry for silence, I caught COVID

      When comparing vaxxed to unvaxxed numbers, it proportional to population. Roughly speaking, and mind you I’m rounding the numbers now because I’m tired, but about 90% of the population – that would be the vaccinated – account for 60% of the hospitalized cases. Those who are unvaxxed, roughly 10% of the population, account for the remaining 40% of hospital cases. Hope that helps. Britt.
