“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 – We are up to our armpits in alligators, and leaders want to plan for the future before sorting out the colossal mess they have made at home


It seems that G-7 leaders are capable of slapstick comedy.

They are still clinging to policies that failed to contain coronavirus, have not recovered from the virus, and have not begun to rebuild devastated economies.

The WHO secretary-general, Tedros
Adhanom Ghebreyesus, has a questionable past as a shill for dictators and a close alliance with China, so he is not an ideal guide for G-7 leaders. Moreover, Tedros ignored warnings about how contagious the coronavirus was and refused to eliminate international travel to contain the virus.

In March 2020, Tedros did a 180-degree turn and went from assuring us there was little danger to issuing alarms that coronavirus was very dangerous and required drastic action for containment. It was too late to prevent an epidemic from becoming a pandemic, and I suspect that was deliberate.

If we step back for a moment, the G-7 leaders are up to their eyes in the global warming and climate change alarmism that has not affected our climate for decades. Global warming is barely measurable. The only failures are missing silly carbon reduction targets nations have created for themselves. That should have had severe negative results but did not. No explanations are forthcoming.

The coronavirus containment plan was the same doomsday alarmism and assurances that we could contain the virus if we locked down businesses and people. It worked – in a couple of nations that closed borders and shut down early, preventing import of the virus.

G-7 nations did not escape.

We are up to our armpits in alligators, and leaders want to plan for the future before sorting out the colossal mess they have made at home. Until they have fully restored our freedoms and rights and rebuilt our economy to ramp up our GDP and achieve full employment, they cannot understand the factors that affect a plan to avoid another pandemic.

Tedros’s whining about the unfairness of the race to immunize is tiresome, typical socialist crap that fails to recognize G-7 nations funded the development of vaccines. Without that initiative, there would be no way to counter coronavirus.

If Tedros and his ilk have their way and impoverish first-world nations to make the world fairer, the next pandemic will kill off a significant portion of the world’s population. Destroying our economies puts us on the road to slavery.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau needs to focus full attention on restoring our freedoms and rights and creating a business climate that allows entrepreneurs to thrive.|

The alternative is to resign as PM and join Mark Carney and the
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). That way, we rid ourselves of two pieces of useless baggage.

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

When necessary – and only when necessary – the Family Maintenance Enforcement Program can attach (garnish) wages

Alan Forseth ~~ Kamloops, BC ~~ May 15th Earlier this week (Monday May 13 th ) the BC government announced it would be establishing a new Crown agency to oversee the Family Maintenance Enforcement Program (FMEP).   They indicated that on or before the end of October, the provision of family maintenance services would transition from a contracted service provider, to the newly created Crown agency. Apparently, this was to ensure that family maintenance enforcement services for vulnerable British Columbians continue uninterrupted. Seeing this story, reminded me of a woman ( we’ll call her Mary Brown ) who had email me some time b ack about this very thing, and questions she had about how maintenance enforcement was imposed and enforced. She said to me, “ I’m just curious if you can get any statistics of the homeless men and woman, that have children, that they are paying family maintenance in support of their children”.  “I am not about to sugg
