“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.

THE SIDEWINDER -- Just quit your constant damned whining and do something positive about it

  Living in a democracy is a wonderful thing, but it comes with responsibilities such as voting and being involved. When the dust settled on Saturdays (October 24 th ) BC election, less than two thirds of the eligible voters * took the time to vote - but the loudest bitchers will probably be among the more than one third of voters who sat on their asses and complained about how all politicians are crooks, etc. How many of you constant whiners have ever done anything close to becoming involved; or do you just like sniveling to hear your own voice? Are you one the arseholes who likes to take advantage of everything our democracy has to offer, without ever contributing anything? And I don't want to listen to your crap about paying taxes, blah, blah, blah. There's more to making democracy work than simply voting and then sitting back and let others carry the ball for you. Too many people seem unwilling to get involved - and follow-up - to make sure elected po

AARON GUNN -- He is, at his core, an ideologue, meaning the facts of any particular issue don’t actually matter

Ben Isitt - City Councillor and Regional Director Victoria City Council and its resident-genius Ben Isitt is back with another dumb idea. Introducing a motion to ban the horse-drawn carriages that have coloured Victoria’s downtown streets for decades, calling them “an outdated mode of transportation”. Are you serious?   No one is actually commuting by horse and carriage. They are here for tourists and residents alike to interact with world-class animals and discover the magic and history of our provincial capital. It’s part of what gives Victoria its charm. And the truth is these horses are treated better than anywhere else in the world. They probably live better lives than many British Columbians.   And talk to anyone who works with these horses and they’ll all tell you the exact same thing: this is what the horses love to do. This is what they were bred for and trained for. This is what gives their lives purpose and meaning. But maybe we shouldn’t be su

THE SIDEWINDER: MacDUFF'S NAIVE CALL

I have just struggled through Cheryl Ashlie's column ( MacDuff’s Call: A political novice with a sizeable ego ), in the Sept. 22 edition of The Maple Ridge News. To say the least, Ashlie's comments are naive and show just how totally out of touch she has become with political reality. Ashlie lauds the decision of Darryl Plecas to accept John Horgan's invitation to become the Speaker of the House, a move described by almost everyone else as self-serving and a betrayal of the trust of the constituents who voted for him. Ashlie claims Plecas' turncoat move will help provide good governance but in making this claim, she fails to explain how he will achieve this lofty goal.
