“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

BC Liberals join calls for vaccine rollout plan clarity

 

The BC Liberals are calling for increased clarity on John Horgan and the NDP government’s vaccination delivery plan for British Columbians following significant public confusion over the lack of details and specifics about the rollout.

British Columbians are being given few details about how the COVID-19 vaccine rollout is meant to happen throughout our province. Other jurisdictions, like Alberta, have publicized specific timelines and laid out clear plans for who gets the vaccine and when,” said BC Liberal Health Critic Renee Merrifield.

People are looking to this government for a detailed plan that answers important questions like how it is being distributed, what the timelines are, and why there are differences in health authorities. Everyone deserves more answers than what they’ve been getting from John Horgan and the NDP so far.”


The lack of details in the province’s current vaccination plan has created confusion about when vaccination will begin in the wider population, how it will be tracked, and how it will be delivered.

Right now, you have people on the frontline, including teachers and first responders, who are still in the dark as to whether they will be a priority group to receive the vaccine and when that would even occur. It’s unacceptable to have this level of uncertainty at this stage,” added BC Liberal Education Critic Jackie Tegart.

People here in B.C. have high expectations from this government to deliver the vaccine but the current NDP plan leaves British Columbians with more questions than answers.”


As of today, British Columbia’s publicly available plan for vaccine distribution still consists of a single webpage on the BC Centre for Disease Control’s website.

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
