“I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.” ~~ John G. Diefenbaker

FELDSTED -- Government efforts to offset some of the results of a destructive economic policy are aimed at maintaining political power

Former Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney advising PM on COVID-19 economic response -- Carney recently departed top job at Bank of England after guiding it through Brexit uncertainty (David Cochrane ~~ CBC News ~~ Aug 10, 2020)

Mark Carney — the former governor of the Bank of Canada and the Bank of England — has been acting as an informal adviser to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on the federal government's response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Carney "certainly has been advising the PM through different phases of this," said a senior government official speaking on background. "I'd hope we can count on him for more."

This is incredibly dangerous to Canada’s sovereignty.

Mr. Carney is not a neutral advisor primarily interested in the security and welfare of Canada and her people. Mr. Carney’s primary interest is pressing the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) insane and unworkable plans to eliminate carbon dioxide emissions.

There is no hard evidence that the proportion of carbon dioxide gas in the atmosphere drives our climate. It is an unproven hypothesis based on faulty computer models and algorithms that the author (Michael Mann) will not reveal for scrutiny by qualified scientists.

Validation of a hypothesis is central to scientific progress. Refusal to reveal his calculations for verification indicates flaws he does not want to reveal.

The World Health Organization (WHO), another UN agency, spent months downplaying the dangers of COVID infections only to pivot in mid-march and declare COVID the most dangerous virus ever. The WHO, supported by governments and the media, has successfully created a COVID Exaggeration Syndrome -- designed to scare people into relinquishing their freedoms and rights to prevent the spread of another flu virus.

It is a better-organized replication of the IPCC doomsday predictions.

The financial crisis Canada is facing is a direct consequence of our lock-down approach to COVID. There are no intervening or external factors.

Our governments chose to lock down the economy for a protracted period. That led to borrowing hundreds of billions to prevent widespread personal and business bankruptcies which would have resulted in civil unrest and removal of the federal government.

Government efforts to offset some of the results of a destructive economic policy are aimed at maintaining political power.

Hundreds of thousands of Canadians who fell through the cracks and will not survive financially attest to the poor planning of financial countermeasures. If Mr. Trudeau and his government are incapable of dealing with the fiscal crisis they have created, they have no choice but to resign.

I am reminded of a speech by Oliver Cromwell when dissolving the British Parliament in 1653:

“You have sat too long here for any good you have been doing lately….
Depart, I say; and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!”

Three hundred and sixty-seven years later, it is eerily appropriate for our situation.

BONUS material ... apparently, Mr. Carney did not do a stellar job of shepherding the UK through the epidemic. The UK is in recession for the first time in 11 years.”

It seems the call for blood donors is being responded to, however ... “This effort is a marathon, not a sprint” says Canadian Blood Services

A week and a half ago I wrote the commentary ... “ While the national inventory is currently strong, an increase in blood donor cancellations is a warning sign of potential challenges to maintaining a health inventory of blood ” It was written as a result of talk about a potential blood shortage that would occur if people stopped donating due to the COVID-19 virus. It seems the call to Canadians was responded to, however, as I was told this afternoon ... “ T his effort is a marathon, not a sprint ”. As it now stands now, donors are able to attend clinics which are held in Vancouver (2), Victoria, Surrey, and in Kelowna, so I asked if there any plans to re-establish traveling clinics to others communities - for example in Kamloops, Prince George, Prince Rupert, Revelstoke or Cranbrook, and perhaps further north at perhaps Ft. St. John? According to Communications Lead Regional Public Affairs Specialist Marcelo Dominguez, Canadian Blood Services is still on

FEDLSTED -- Rules will have to relax-- the question is how and when

The media has created a fervour over the mathematical models that allegedly help governments predict the future of Coronavirus infections in the general population. Mathematical modelling has limited use and value. We need to understand is that the data available on Coronavirus (COVID-19) infections in Canada is far too small for statistical reliability. The data available for the whole world is useless due to variables in how nations responded to Coronavirus infections. There is no commonality in steps taken to combat virus spread and no similarity in the age demographics of world nations, so the numbers you see on the daily tracking of world infections are not useful in developing a model of infection rates that can be relied on. Mathematical models of the future spread of Coronavirus are better than nothing, but not a whole lot better.  Mathematical models must include assumptions on virus spreads, and various factors involved. As they are used in projections, a small erro

WUN FEATHER -- can we just put those two names to bed for a while? You can call me an ‘Indian’ and I won't mind. And let's not call the farmers and ranchers ‘Settlers’ anymore

Hey there # TeamCanada !   I can't take it any more! Well, I guess I can, but I don't want to. I want to talk about the names we call each other. My very best friends, and all my Elderly Aunts and Uncles call me an Indian. I have walked into the most magnificent dining hall at the Air Liquide Head office, Quai D'orsay in Paris, France, surrounded by the worlds top producing Cryogenics team, and Patrick Jozon, the President of Air Liquide, has seen me enter the room, and yelled: " Bonjour! There is Warren! He is my Indian friend from Canada! He and I chased Beavers together in Northern BC!" And over 400 people turned to look at me and then they all smiled, and nodded. To most European people, an Indian is an absolute ICON!   The ultimate symbol of North America. They love us. And then, one time I had just gotten married and took vacation days off to take my new wife to meet my Grandmother; I was so proud. But as soon a
