“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

On behalf of the PMO, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, this is now the (in my personal opinion) improved ‘for publication’ version of the Safe Restart Agreement


Hear yee, hear yee ... the following is an announcement from the Prime Ministers Office

 

Yesterday, the Prime Ministers propaganda department (AKA the Prime Ministers Office) sent out a media release on next steps for the Safe Restart program.

Having worked for many years in the media, I realized right away that someone had missed running this past the editor(s) to check for any things which needed to be fined tuned. 

On behalf of the PMO, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, this is the new, and in my personal opinion, improved ‘for publication’ version ..........

 

As we move into the fall and the world continues to deal with the impacts of COVID-19, the Government of Canada remains focused on keeping Canadians safe and healthy, while continuing to ensure they have the supports needed during this global health and economic crisis.

Or as some might say ...
to continue shoveling out money, with little to no checks and balances ... and whether needed or not.

The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today shared the details of the investment (vote buying frenzy) that will be made through the Safe Restart Agreement. This will provide continued support to Canadians, as we safely restart our economy and build a more resilient Canada.  

Through the Agreement, reached earlier this summer, the Government of Canada announced over $19 billion in federal funding (future taxes to be paid by you, your children, and their children) to help provinces and territories safely restart the economy.

Provinces and territories were asked to outline in a letter how these funds would best be allocated within their jurisdictions, based on their priorities. The premiers have now submitted the letters and the federal funding (again read that to be monies to be paid for through future taxes imposed on all Canadians) will be transferred to the provinces and territories.

The Safe Restart Agreement supports measures to increase testing and contact tracing to protect Canadians from future waves of the virus. It will help support the capacity of our health care systems, including through services for people facing mental health challenges.

It will also provide municipalities with funding so they can quickly deliver essential services, like public transit, that Canadians rely on every day, and secure a reliable source of personal protective equipment (PPE) for essential workers. 

The Agreement will also provide direct support to Canadian workers, including safe child care to help parents returning to work.

It will also provide income support for people without paid sick leave, and takes steps to protect the most vulnerable, like Canada’s seniors – and this along with the likely soon to be announced Universal Basic Income program where monies for working class people will be transferred to those who don’t, or won’t.

As we continue to deal with the health and economic challenges of the pandemic, the government will continue to invest in Canadians by bribing you and others foolish enough to believe there is a free lunch, and that money does indeed grow on trees.

Together, working with the provinces and territories, we will build a more resilient Canada – one that is healthier and safer, cleaner and more competitive, and fairer and more inclusive for everyone ...

... based on Justin Trudeau’s ethically and morally challenged, and ever changing beliefs, which are dependent upon checking to see which way the wind is blowing.

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
